Re: Outreach Program for Women

Hello all,

Please excuse my delay in replying. I found a mentor with OTI and started
a project right after contacting this list, and as time was running short,
I was wracking my brain on crunch time until the deadline. Then after my
application was properly submitted, I thought I might try some of this
strange thing called "sleep" that I keep hearing so much about. :P

C-Mike: Aha, so you're the culprit! ;) Thanks for the fix.

Greetings, Stefan, thank you for your help! Now that I'm not in a mad
rush, I'd still like to see what I can do with svn-help. I'm partway
through a C programming class, and this seems like a great way to get my
feet wet. It's likely going to be a few days before I can take a good look
at it, though, because the deadline forced me to turn in my OTI project in
a mostly-complete state, and it seems a shame not to wrap up the loose ends
and finish it after all that hard work to get it this far. Many thanks for
your kind offer of C help in case I get stuck. Hopefully I won't need it,
but it's nice to know where to turn if I'm floundering and Google is not
being my friend. I'll ping you in the next few days after I see what's
involved.

Chat soon,

Lisa

P.S. - Speaking of the aforementioned mad rush, and reading through the
previous emails again, it occurs to me that my cell number is probably
posted in the public archives now. Eek. Any way to edit that out? TIA.
