Extra credit for Say

To the Nitpicker,
Is it ok if I continue to submit the other assignments, while working on the extra credit version of Say? Or must I complete and submit the new, extra-credit version of Say before I can continue and submit the next assignment?

It's ok if you do it, but you won't get a reply.
We tackle one assignment and beat you into submission until we get it perfect. Then we go on to the next assignment, employing what we've learned so far. Most nitpickers will just ignore out-of-sequence submissions without comment.
When I went through the Cattle Drive, I worked on assignments way ahead of my nitpicker, then each reply I got, I'd fix the future assignments too, so they'd be ready to go when the time came.
And that "extra credit" term is a little deceptive. It really means "the part you have to do later, after you get the basic part working."

Ahh.
I was gonna say, I have the "regular" version perfected & acknowledged as done by the nitpicker, so I went ahead and submitted the next (Times I think?)...I guess she'll reply (hopefully) with explicit instructions as to what is next...

Does that mean, one can submit only the basic 'Say' and iteratively submit the credit and extra credit by building on it ?

Absolutely, yes, Soumya. That's the idea.

Ryan,

If you have decided to skip the other part of the Say assignment, you may proceed to the Times assignment. But it is to your benefit to do both parts of Say. The more homework you do, the better prepared you will be for future topics.� The extra credit on the Say assignment will prepare you for larger projects.

I am in the process of finalizing the billion version of Say right now. I guess you can ignore my submission of Times, I'll just re-submit it after getting through the new Say.
Thanks for clearing up my confusion.
