Note:  As you can see, if either one of the TA's or I are holding office hours, I/he will be signed on to AOL AIM.  You can contact the TA or me to find out quick information, but do not expect a TA or I to debug your project remotely.  Please also note that I may be signed on from home, so do not make an assumption as to where the screen name is originating unless it is during the regularly schedule hours above AND the announcements page does not have a change.  Please also note that office hours are subject to change, so please refer to the website and not the hardcopy syllabus for the most current information.
