13/4/2018: Assignment 4 zip file

Apologies for the inconvenience. If you have downloaded the zip file BEFORE 11:30 am this Friday 13th April, the template for ClassTimes will miss one method printAtStartTime that you need to implement as part of the Core.
This affects mainly the people who have downloaded the zip file at the first lab today.
If you have not started on ClassTimes, the easiest might be to download the zip file again. Otherwise I am adding a link on the top of the Assignment4 page with the extra bit, that you can insert in your program.
