I think I'm satisfied. I didn't really understand the last 2 projects you completed for me so i don't know if they were missing anything. I will note that the first 4 projects did contain small errors or did not incorporate all the instructions but these were easy fixes and helped with my learning experience. i will use your service again if the need ever arises.
