I wanted to point out to anyone else that was confused. In the description for 7. Victory! it states:
"Now, as we mentioned, this system isn't perfect. For instance, if the paragraph contains both "Eric" and "Eddie", we'll see this in our hits array: ['E','r','i','c','E','d','d','i','e'];"
This is actually incorrect. The code was setup to take the length of myName, in this case "Eric", and push the next characters in the text array up to the length of myName. That being said, while the For loop would initiate upon finding "Eddie" it would only catch "Eddi". The description is in error.
At least I hope it is. Otherwise I'm going to feel real stupid.
