How do we go back and retrieve our code from the challenges?

Some of these are quite taxing and I'd like to save the code. It seems that when you complete the challenge there's no way to go back and retrieve the code you used.

Sadly, there is no way to go back. What I do, is take a screenshot before I click "Submit". If I did get it wrong, I delete the screenshot, and do it again with another screenshot. This way, at least I have the code (and the actual challenge task).

If you want, you should send the Support Team a quick message about your request. :dizzy:

Thanks, Jason.

I had been copying and pasting stuff into Sublime Text but I realised I hadn't done so with the teachers.py script. Ah well, no big loss!

Onwards and upwards.
