Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

after many otherwise intelligent sounding suggestions that achieved nothing the nice folks at Technet said the only solution was to low level format my hard disk then reinstall my signature. Sadly, this still didn't fix the issue!
I had hoped you would have spayed away from that one.

So for I don't know, a week? I've been working on optimizing a finite automota powerset construction algorithm to work with unicode ranges without breaking it.
The "without breaking it" bit has me in fits. I've tried two different ways of tackling it on my own, and that worked until it didn't at which point I ripped a technique off from another library, and that I thought worked, again, until it didn't.
So now I'm just gutting the engine out of GPLEX and using that as the heart of Rolex.
Screw it. I know a wall when I hit one.
Now I just have to get the Gplex code torn down, retooled and slangified. No small feat. Harder in fact then if i had just gotten the above working.
