C19s parking problem has been fixed, and there's a few minor fixes here and there. I've also developed a brand new vignette based on one from the December 08 exam.

Just scoured the Washington ASLA website, is Section 4 Bootcamp listed there yet?  If so, please direct me where to look, if not please direct me when and where to look.  And either way, hold me a spot, I am coming!!! That is not too long of a drive. Thank you.
