Not the One

The CD which Wonderland had gone in turned out to be the SACD version of Tubular Bells, not Tubular Bells 2003. Mike, stop making versions of Tubular Bells, please, it's confusing!

What not to do when Perl exasperates you

I was banging my head against the wall trying to get a regular expression to work in Perl. Eventually I got so annoyed:

[19:34] * Alden kicks Perl in the nuts
[19:34] * Alden loads C++ Builder
(Insert huge system crash here as C++ Builder 6 causes multiple faults and locks up Windows)
[19:40] * Alden quietly goes back to working with Perl.

Why did I forsake you, Perl? I proceeded to fix the problem in about five minutes.

I wonder if Borland have a patch out...
