Getting an error : ioexception: the configured user limit (128) on the number of inotify instances has been reached, or the per-process limit on the number of open file descriptors has been reached. codecademy

Not sure why. Additionally, I can’t get Codecademy to check off the last step. I checked the solution and it seems the same.

@model IndexModel
  ViewData["Title"] = "Home page";
  string grade = "A";

<div class="text-center">
  <h1 class="display-5">Let's work with conditionals!</h1>

  <h3>Exam results:</h3>
  @switch (grade)
     case "A": <h4>Excellent job!</h4>
     case "B": <h4>Well done!</h4>
     case "C": <h4>Needs some work!</h4>
     case "D": <h4>You Passed</h4>
     case "F": <h4>You failed, better try next time</h4>
     default: <h4>Invalid Grade!</h4>
  <h4>Your grade is, @grade</h4>

Link to the gist

Not sure about the exception you’re seeing, but I ran into the same issue and posted a bug report about it. No reply yet:

TLDR: try removing the space between “@switch” and “(grade)”

Same, I believe that step is bugged in its test. I can get it to run offline just fine.

Thank you, removing the space (Even though the code was valid syntax) got the test to pass.

Thank you! I experienced the same bug

fix your ■■■■■■■ website. paid for this bull ■■■■.
I shouldnt have to type out EXACTLY what you guys are typing out in your paragraph or heading elements. My syntax for my switch and every thing is correct but here I am ■■■■■■■ around because I put space between the keyword switch and the parentheses instead of having them side by side like this… switch(grade). I had it like this switch (grade). My code worked and rendered just fine but i had to waste valuable time in my life because you dumb ■■■■■ want it exactly the same.

ya its ■■■■■■■ bull ■■■■
Fix this ■■■■ you stupid ■■■■■■■ morons.
