Submitted the first assignment for Java-4b (Say) about a week ago but had no nitpick as yet. What is a reasonable amount of time to wait before presuming it lost somewhere? And, not knowing Java Ranch's internals, should I simply re-submit it with a comment or wait for confirmation? Unless, of course, the code is sooo bad that no one wants to touch it!

We try to reply to submissions within one to two weeks, but I know I push that sometimes when my work and life get busy. I'd say give it a couple more days, then resubmit just in case. If you still don't get a reply, let me know and I'll try to find out what's happened to your nitpicker.

Mike, I haven't seen anything from you. I try to respond within a day -- if I'm nitpicking you and you haven't heard from me in 48 hours feel free to ping me and just ask if your assignment got lost or whatnot.

I try to warn people ahead of time if I'm going to be away for a few days.

A ... BUG? Noooooo, not that!
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
