Got a question about technology? Ask it here. Discussion of hardware, software, TiVos, multi-region DVDs, Windows, Macs, LINUX, hand-helds, iPods, anything tech related. Better than any helpdesk!
I am so damn rusty at perl.
Could someone look at this: [link] and write a line of perl that would extract all the links? Note that if there's a link it's always the first thing on a line, as well as the only link. I mean, those are the only links I want.
perl -ne '/^<a href="(.*?)"/ && print "$1\\n"'
Of course, now my boss has it in his head to do it in VBScript.
eta: OK, my boss says I can try that in perl. (He likes to write very short, concise programs, so I'd think that perl would be right up his ally.)
How 'bout them there computers?
I think they're a fad.
I predict that one day, computers will be as big as a house, and so expensive that only the five richest kings of Europe will be able to afford one.
Why doesn't this work?
(a quick little funny thing.)
Why doesn't this work?
So, did this person really do what they said they did, or is it a hoaxer who did it to a card he'd already fried because he forgot to attach a power cord to the fan's connector? ;)
Sooo, would anyone have any suggestions as to where a girl might look to find a site to download music videos that have been, say, airing on MTV2 and so on, but are not yet available from the iTunes store? I understand if no one wants to post that information, but helpful hints sent to my profile addy would be keen.
This would be my suggestion. I've never used one of the blogs they give for free, but I installed it on my own server and it was easy as pie to use once I had it set up. No coding at all. And it's fairly professional looking.
Jilli, you can usually find torrents for such things. Isohunt would probably have them if you did a search there.
Unrelatedly, what criteria would you guys use to purchase a new computer? I have two laptops; the Dell is almost three years old, and the Powerbook is about five. Both of them still work, no hardware problems; even the Mac is using 10.4 with no major lag time, which I think is pretty impressive given its age and specs. But they are both a little older, and both get bogged down with the memory requirements of current software/oses. Is that enough of a reason to look into upgrading to a new machine?
