Hey guys,

So I was online yesterday at my designated 6-9 time slot to help people out
with the course material and was actually able to guide a few people through
some problems, which was awesome!

Some people are finding the relational algebra stuff a bit tricky, but I've
finished up all the assignments for this week so if you need help, feel free
to find me in the following chat room at the designated hours:


I'm starting to think that Tues/Thurs 6-9pm EST might actually suck for both
people in Europe and further east, as well as myself since I end up skipping
dinner :P The other issue is most people won't get around to trying
exercises until the day that they're due anyway.

How does 9am-12pm on Sundays sound to you guys for chat room "office

Let me know!
