Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
edit: You're seeing this post about a week after I wrote it...

Not much to report this week, spent most of it working in South Dakota.

Monday, Day 19: Worked all day, then spent a good part of the evening building a Windows Home Server. I have to say, it was a really easy process. I'm using a refurb Dell Optiplex GX280 that I picked up for < $200 at MicroCenter. I ran into TWO small snags while building it. The first was a driver issue (easily resolved with a trip to the Dell website) and the second was the size of the internal drive (too small.)  I replaced the internal with a much larger SATA drive (which I intended to do anyway) and everything else worked like a champ. I'm sitting at about 1.5TB right now, but I suspect I'll be picking up a few more drives soon.

Tuesday, Day 20: just another day at work, not much to report. Spent some time working on a text parser, which was a lot of fun. Kind of like playing Where's Waldo, only in code.

Wednesday, Day 21 - Friday, Day 23: Same as above.  Maybe I'll write an article about the text parsing I'm doing. Sanitized of course, to remove anything client specific. We'll see. Posted on Thursday, January 29, 2009 9:25 AM | Back to top

Are you using any Parsing Expression Grammar (PEG) in the text parser or is it just a simple parser? PEG's as in - expression tree's, etc. ??
