My students,

My TAs pointed out to me that the student's question about a regrade where
he needed to change three instructions was not as bad a question as my
barking at him suggested.  What he was trying to say was he made only
one mistake, but that one mistake translated into several offsets being
misaligned.  I agree!  My reaction was too harsh.

So, step 1.  I apologize to the student for barking at him.  

Step 2.  If you had the same problem - one instruction out of whack causing
several offsets to have to be changed, then you deserve consideration for
a 10% penalty even though the number of actual instructions that have to
be changed is greater than 2.  Please resubmit under case #1.

See you in class on Monday.
