I remember how Mr. Ed shared that story about the "impossible" assignment and how it IS indeed possible, just time consuming and arduous in undertaking. After many hours of trying, I am not able to manipulate shapes, haha! I am at peace, though, as it seems all of us are struggling with that. With that, this is my progress for this week:
1) text + color change: arduino.js
2) output code change: arduino_compressed.js
3) Make own block: index.html + above
4) change padding: blockly_compressed.js
Regarding the challenge questions, all I can say, I'll give it a crack today haha!
