I was finally inspired by Alan, who reads this blog using his Blackberry on the Paris Metro. (Truly a world wide web.) Also inspiring were the comments of an anonymous poster, who wrote that all the Regular Expressions (RegEx) posts were incredibly helpful, but couldn’t I please make them easier to access? So I did it, they are all beautifully threaded now. I even fixed awful typos in the Summary/Intro post and the ^ post (and you know, typos are the worst when you are a newbie learning a technical topic, you can spend hours trying to understand a topic, only to finally learn that the author was just lazy.)
