nand2tetris.zip archive is missing project 08 .vm code

dlk
The zip archive is missing the vm code that needs to be translated into assembly in project 08.

The code is available from http://www.nand2tetris.org/08.php in pop-up windows, so the problem isn't
insurmountable, but it's awkward to cut and paste from the windows, and on my OS/browser combination I lose the line breaks when I do so.  It would be more convenient if the code was provided in the .zip file.

For a few of the .vm examples such as FibonacciSeries.vm (which should be, but is not, in projects/08/ProgramFlow/FibonacciSeries/), it would be a useful exercise for the student to write the .vm file, if a good enough description of what the program should do were provided.  So, providing such a description of the file in the zip file or even on the Web page would be an alternative.

Hi,

One minor note: in the new nand2tetris.zip that I downloaded today,
the first comment line of

  projects/08/FunctionCalls/SimpleFunction/SimpleFunction.vm

is

/ This file is part of www.nand2tetris.org

i.e. it is missing one forward slash.
