-Filler text- your entry goes here; remove ​this line to receive full credit.+I leave excuses for those inclined to think they'​re somehow not at fault, and for that reason I can succinctly say, I messed up. For the first time I'm imagining I'll have to turn a program in late, as I keep getting an error that I cannot begin to wrap my head around. Organizing my thoughts well enough to compose an email has always been a challenge that i prefer to avoid seeing as how I write, and think, like a madman would. But I've come to realize that's my folly, as here I am hours away from a deadline without the faintest idea of how I can go about beginning to solve my problems that were caused by my negligence and procrastination. Honestly, it sucks. I will endeavor to never have this happen again as it's not a feeling I'm particularly comfortable with. However despite me not being able to finish this program tonight I've had a lot of fun with fun with flags (go figure.) The idea of making a loop to generate shapes to me was at first something that seemed wildly harder than it actually ended up being (I don't know that it'll work as it compiles fine but always come up with the error of "error loading img" so i can't actually see). specifically in the case of circles, making multiple that descend the side of the flag (as mine are supposed to) simply adding to the y value each time the loop processes at a constant spacing will promote (what i assume to be) a relatively neat pattern. Polygon command gave me a bit of pause, and it took me a long while to realize you had to specifically name each x and y point of the array before it could have a basis to go off of. anyhow, I guess I need to learn up more on these argc and argv bits as I don't understand them at all. 
 +Base 9 letter division wasn't all that different from base 10 or 8 for me as i never had an instance where a value was borrowing and being borrowed from so all of my numbers ended up being pretty clean to figure out. It seemed to be excessively short, my hope is that base 12 will kick my ass, I kind of miss having a brick wall to hit my head against (except in the case of this program where i genuinely don't even have a faint clue as to why it's giving me this error...) 
 +that's all, bit of a bummer of a journal entry, but I guess I'm a bit of a bummer in terms of a person so it all equals out. the universe is a lot more fair than many of us would like to think...
