- 14 Apr: Sarah Bergkuist found this community site created by a Harvard student (which is only a little bit slicker than the best of your PS7's): http://www.thefacebook.com/:Life at Harvard has never been better since Feb. 4, 2004, when thefacebook.com started up. To site creator Mark E. Zuckerberg '06, we are indebted. No longer does any Harvard student wake up with the sinking feeling that he has no friends. No, he logs on, and knows he has 14. It feels so good — so, so good.Don't spend too much time on this until you finish the exam and your PS8 project!

- activate-process.php insert$email = $_GET["email"]; $ac = $_GET["ac"]; $user = $_POST["user"]; $password = $_POST["password"]; $lastname = $_POST["lastname"]; $firstnames = $_POST["firstnames"]; $URL = $_POST["URL"]; $content = $_POST["content"];after openDatabase ();.
- 3 Apr: Wednesday, 7 April is the last day the ACs will hold regularly scheduled lab hours. Once PS8 starts, you will be assigned a consultant and can arrange meetings directly.
- 5 Apr: Class 31: Slides, Notes
- 5 Apr: Instead of submitting your PS7 site by entering its URL into your personal page in the CS200 Community site (which you may still do if you want, but don't need to), you should submit your PS7 site by inviting me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to your community. You should still turn in answers to all the questions on paper. Only turn in printouts of the code you actually changed — just the lines you inserted for questions 2 and 3. If you get everything to work for questions 6-8, you don't need to turn that in on paper (you'll get full credit for this if it works when I visit your site). But, if you're not confident your code for questions 6-8 works correctly, you should turn it in on paper to get some credit.
