Error Notice at Time 9:41: I labeled the checkbox “Wink if Checked” but it should be labeled “Blink if Checked.” All of the instructions and expressions after that point are based on creating a blink if the checkbox is checked, but allow either eye to wink if the checkbox is unchecked. I apologize for this incorrect and confusing labeling instruction.
