+Tommy Butler The Perl Mongers meetup is 2 Mondays away, right?  I think it'd be awesome to drive some publicity, since there's probably other people in DFW who want to see Sauce Labs in action!  Start postin' it up everywhere...

I see your /^[A-Za-z]+\s[A-Za-z]+$/ regex and raise you /^(([A-Za-z]+[\\']?)([A-Za-z]+)?\s)+([A-Za-z]+[\\']?)([A-Za-z]+)?$/  !!

+Tommy Butler This Tweet captures the original intent of the regex: https://twitter.com/SWebCEO/status/576974915284291584 Less stuff obliterated in there. ;)

+Mike South Yeah, it definitely doesn't handle Nordic or Asian names very well, for instance... nor ", Sr." or ", Jr." at this time.  However, this is only being deployed in a small area in central Texas, so it shouldn't be a big deal & will buy us some time to look into expanding it as recommended.

Do you have a system with dual #atmega  microcontrollers, and find yourself in a quandary trying to program them easily? Here's how to write a dual AVR programmer for AVRDUDE that you can use with an #arduino  !  Write to two ATmega chips without needing to rewire anything in between jobs.  http://goshtastic.blogspot.com/2014/09/make-your-own-dual-programmer-in-avrdude.html

Make your own dual programmer in AVRDUDE
Those of you who have programmed an Arduino through the Arduino or AVR Studio IDE may have noticed the utility that is really doing the work: AVRDUDE (AVR Downloader/UploaDEr).  This is a powerful program that can facilitate programming new sketches on top ...

Does Protractor + Selenium WebDriver Sound "Promising?"
I have been diving into JavaScript and AngularJS heavily over the past few weeks, pushing the capabilities of my organization's application testing in the process.  Despite having written quite a bit of JavaScript in my past for a number of award-winning We...

You didn't think it could be done, did you? Well, let me prove you wrong!  First, some terms: AngularJS : An MVC framework for JavaScript, allowing you to write web apps without relying on JQuery. Protractor : A test harness for Angular apps. Sauce Labs : A...

Software engineer & tester for lots of platforms from embedded systems to million-dollar enterprise business machines.  Stock options maven, and vintage music and television game show enthusiast.  Collector and semi-frequent wearer of fine suits & dress clothes.  Formerly a scuba diver, composer, and getting back into percussion, so my perfect pitch won't be going away anytime soon.  Laments how "jack of all trades" is no longer a viable career path.
