23:08 soniakeys so if the task says "show x", and the code says "print x + y", that strikes me as incorrect.

23:17 mwn3d_phone soniakeys: seems ok. Which example are you talking about?
23:18 soniakeys hmph.  string contatenation.  the task was reworded last summer and to my brain, it's asking for something different now, leaving all of the implementations wrong.
23:22 soniakeys i can drop it though.  there are certainly substantial things to spend time on.
23:24 mwn3d_phone It seems a bunch of examples assign x to some value and then show x concatenated with another value instead of assigning x concat'd with some other value to a variable first
23:24 mwn3d_phone Seems close enough to me
23:25 soniakeys little things bug me disproportionately sometimes
23:26 mwn3d_phone Heh that's ok. I think that's an aspect of being a programmer.
23:26 soniakeys lol.  it does seem to be common.
23:26 mwn3d_phone Computers are picky and so are we.
