Please remember that you are encouraged to work in the ITLabs and your
programs will be tested using the ITLabs machines. It is YOUR
responsibility to make sure your programs work on the ITLabs machines.
Also remember that the TAs are not offering any help figuring out how to
install and run the STk Scheme interpreters on your home machines.
