+<div id="course" class="cv">
+ In this course, there will be four homework assignments (not
+ counting this one). These assignments will be automatically graded
+ and their results will be uploaded to a leaderboard, which will show
+ assignment-level and cumulative leaders for each assignment.
+<p><b>Do this now</b></p>
+In order to setup the homework environment, please do the following:
+<ul class="real">
+ <li class="real">Sign up
+ for <a href="">our Piazza
+ course</a>.
+ <li class="real">Email <a href="">Matt Post</a> with the following information:
+ <ul class="real">
+ <li class="real">Your name
+ <li class="real">A handle (this will identify you on the leader board)
+ <li class="real">A base URL where we can download your
+ assignments (see below)
+ </ul>
+ <li class="real">Upload your "assignment0.txt" file to your
+ designated location. This file should contain a single number.
+<p><b>Base URL</b></p>
+The leaderboard will score and rank your assignments, both on a
+per-assignment and cumulative basis. In order to automate this
+process, we need to know where to find your files. Each assignment in
+the course will be submitted by making available the output of your
+ assignment at some set location. This location will be:
+ BASE_URL/assignment0.txt
+ BASE_URL/assignment1.txt
+ BASE_URL/assignment2.txt
+ BASE_URL/assignment3.txt
+ BASE_URL/assignment4.txt
+If you have web space (say on the CS servers), your BASE_URL could be
+there (e.g., <code></code>). If you don't
+have access, you can used a service
+like <a href="">Dropbox</a>. Dropbox, in
+particular, allows you to create a folder in your Public folder and
+then share the URL with us (it will look something
+like <code></code>).
+If you have questions about this or problems producing a BASE_URL,
+please post them to Piazza.
+The leaderboards will be posted as soon as there is data. The board
+will work as follows: as soon as a homework is posted, we will look
+for assignment solutions for every student every hour on the hour.
+These files will be scored and used to update the leader board. You
+can change this file as often as you'd like; we will use the latest
+results. Your official project turn-in will be whatever we download
+at project due time, which will typically be 11:59 PM EDT.
