Like me, do you dread or avoid using regular expressions in code?

No more - this awesome site analyses your input string and within a few minutes you'll be done!

Terminator Robots and AI

Interesting article on AI - it's not the robots we should be scared of, it's all those hidden systems that run our lives.

Setting up inliner

This is a very useful script to compress and html page into one block of code (all js libraries and css files).  It will also compress images into base64 ... why?

The reading game is about to change forever. Boston-based software developer Spritz has been in "stealth mode" for three years, tinkering with their program and leasing it out to different ebooks, apps, and other platforms.

A wonderfully peaceful campsite with simple but very clean facilities and a lovely warm welcome from the owner. We stayed a few extra days as it was so relaxing.

Another very comfortable camping municipale, situated on the banks of the river Ardour and within easy walking distance of the town centre. Clean facilities, pool and small shop on site. Well shaded. Excellent.
