    Hey Mike,

    I took the code challenges at the Kizan table at CodePalousa, got one
    and flunked two.

    The scope challenge is bugging me, and I wonder if you can point me to
    a copy of that challenge. I want to try to understand what I did not understand!

    Your brother gave me his card and said you may have that challenge code
    posted somewhere..

    Thanks, take care
