Steve Of Flagrant Badassery Schools Me In Regular Expressions

By on

If you search through my site for anything related to Regular Expressions, you will see that Steve of Flagrant Badassery has been going through all my posts pointing out all the issues that I have with my regular expressions. This dude KNOWS his regular expressions and he really knows how to explain them well. In a single weekend, he has tought me as much about regular expressions as I have taught myself over the past year. I wanted to give a big shout-out to Steve, thanks for helping me out. Thou dost rocketh hard core!

Thanks for the kind words, Ben.

In my defense though, I have not been going through your posts looking for issues to point out. :) Rather, I've been sucked into reading a lot of your posts since so many of them are interesting and relevant to the kind of stuff I'm working on. The fact that I've mostly commented on your regex-related posts is simply because you're either on par with or far better than me at many other technologies.


Ha ha, sorry, I didn't mean to come off sounding like you were attacking any of my posts. I just get jazzed up about learning and you are helping me do that.

I believe in love. I believe in compassion. I believe in human rights. I believe that we can afford to give more of these gifts to the world around us because it costs us nothing to be decent and kind and understanding. And, I want you to know that when you land on this site, you are accepted for who you are, no matter how you identify, what truths you live, or whatever kind of goofy shit makes you feel alive! Rock on with your bad self!
