- The
`submit`

list assumes that your CS userid is the same as your W&M userid. If your CS userid differs from your W&M userid, you**must**send me email telling me your CS userid. - Note that the
*deadline*given by`submit`

is**not**the due date, but rather the*drop dead*or*cutoff*date after which the homework or project will no longer be accepted.

- As usual, time management can be a
**major issue**in this course. Time is your enemy. Start homework and projects**early**.
