02 Share what you accomplished yesterday.

03 Share what you commit to accomplishing today.

04 Comment on at least one fellow hacker's progress and give them an IH Point for their check in.

      I was fortunate to get a remote dev job this year doing something I love, to give me more time to work on my project. Overall it鈥檚 been working out, though the last couple of weeks have been chaotic. It took a long time to find one!
