Hi all!

I was just wondering when the HW4 rec will come out. Of course, now we are busy with HW6 and soon with HW8, however, since in the case of HW2 the recovery came out the day after its final deadline (on a Friday), I know many of us thought that that would always be the timing for the recovery homework. Obviously, now there are some complications which no doubt have an effect on the timing of these assignments (such as the hopefully-stable health of the self-proclaimed god of this forum); nevertheless, I wanted to know even if approximately, when we will be able to see this recovery homework, considering that the more time we have to look at it, the more time we can have to work on it (and perhaps the less time of the Christmas holidays will be spent on studying for something other than exams).

Also, if the recovery homework is not supposed to always come out on the day after the final deadline of its respective mandatory homework, could you tell us please?

Thank you.

Dear Mr Tiveron,

The timing is typically such that the recovery homework is released right after the results of the required one is published. There has been an issue with the tuning of the difficulty so we have worked to downscale the effort required, but the rethinking of the exercise has implied a prolonging of the delivery beyond expectations. It will be out by no later than this week anyway. My apologies for the inconvenience this may have caused.

With kind regards,
