Hi there, John Wilkins ! It seems you simply have a typo and one that I've done about a thousand times myself, if I'm really honest. Take another look at that error message:

bash: get: command not found

This means that there is no get command, but there is a git command. Note the spelling difference between "get" and "git". I feel like this happens because we are so used to typing "get" that it's now muscle memory.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

lmbo off I would've never figured that out thank you jennifer
