I updated the weekly assignment to just the readings for now. I'll adjust it if necessary.

Alright, so hopefully everyone is caught up the end of Lesson 2. If so, shall we try the Lesson 2 exercises?

Well, if you want, we can put the exercises off for a week.

It's okay, the rest of y'all can go ahead as long as you're ready. I'll catch up whenever I can. :P

Ok, well why don't we go ahead with trying to do the lesson 2 exercises. Let's try and discuss our answers as well. And if need be, we can give ourselves a second week.

Thanks for the opportunity, but I bow out. I'm too busy, but I'll try and keep learning the information at my own pace. Maybe I'll be able to converse in Sumerian with you guys some day.

:D

We can slow things down. We're in no rush and we all have other things on the go. Stay and just let us know if we're going too fast.

I did the exercises (last weekend actually).
Didn't take me long, it is more about confirming that you understood the principles. For the 3rd one I had to do some re-reading, though, as I had forgotten some details.

I'll share my solutions here:

That’s alright, thank you. I need to spend some time away from computers and whatnot, so please don’t slow down on my account.

@vijayjohn In the 1st and 3rd exercise we have partly different solutions. I'm quite sure about mine (I posted them above) - perhaps you want to re-check yours or tell me why you consider them right?

Guys, I'm sorry to do this, but I'm going to bow out of this group. It's starting to feel overwhelming, and that's not because of the pace. If you guys want, I could still keep abreast of your weekly goals and update the first post as need be. Or you could just post the goal in a reply.
