Tonight I'm pulling an all-nighter at work, something I haven't done in a while. This makes me happy for some reason, although I'm sure I'll pay for it in a few hours. "meh". I've learned a valuable lesson tonight, and that lesson is that you can't trust the various regular expression libraries that are available for java... gnu.regex, the xerces code, the ibm regex library, and the java 1.4 library all have various problems. I mean, sure, I'm abusing them, but they should be able to at least die gracefully.
Anyhoo, Mr. Rogers died a few hours ago. I never really watched him as a kid, but he always seemed like a nice guy.
