Some of you now have expired smartPhysics access.  Your work on smartPhysics will be saved there, so don't worry!   The easiest way to deal with this: go to the physical bookstore and purchase a physical card with the code on it (if you order online they will ship you the code by mail, believe it or not, and it will take longer).   Enter the code and then you will be good.

We will update this announcement with new information about the smartPhysics expiration fiasco as it comes up.
