Firstly I need to know if I have done this correctly
My question a la Hilary's I Ching course was
What do I need to know right now?
Also per Hilary I gave a lot of thought to different aspects of my life such as work,relationships,and pretty much everything in between. Work seemed to be foremost in my mind.
I am posting this as is. I keep being interrupted and my train of thought has long ago fled.If anyone cares to comment on this I would appreciate it. Maybe by that time I will have four minutes to myself and can comment also.

No you made a mistake, it should be hex 39.1,2 > 48
Line 39.1,2 are about obstructions, saying that if are facing any problems at the moment, back off and have a good think on how to get rid of them, then take up the challenge and go at whatever is causing you grief.
Use your fine intelligence in solving your dilemmas.

So I had in the first Tri-gram from the bottom up
young yang - solid line third line
old yin - broken line with x second line
old yang - solid line with O first line
So 1 and 2 are changing lines correct??
I thought if anything I had the relating Hex wrong.
What did I do wrong?
I thought that old yin and yang changed to their opposites old yin to young yang/ old yang to young yin.
Is it because I am using tokens instead of coins?
I really prefer marbles to the pennies.

Water above, fire below, Hexagram 63 with first and second lines changing. You're OK, hattah, it's just that at first glance the diagram you created looks a little odd. The changing solid line doesn't appear quite right. Anyway, you have two changing lines in the lower trigram. Line 2 speaks of something that is lost, but will return after a period of time without you having to pursue after it.
Marbles or tokens work just fine as long as you can easily identify which tokens represent solid, open and changing lines.

Yes, I need an Yi-board, too. Maybe that will make it easier to check my Yi-mail.
I haven't found a way to make a solid line and then go back and stick a circle in the middle yet. Guess I need a Yiboard because the keyboard isn't built right
I agree. Throwing coins feels too much like throwing dice.
I made my marbles and the ones that signify changing lines have the pertaining lines on them so at least I can't miss that! LOL I think they are easier to use than coins
