this is stupid.
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

I was going to introduce myself, still being fairly new to the community—not too sure I want to now.  Back to the regex forum for me. :-\

Just introduce yourself salathe and ignore all that crap. I would have hoped a mod will at least move all that irrelevant prattle to a seperate thread, but doesn't look very likely.

@nadeem: i'm pretty sure you completely missed the subtext of salathe's and cags' posts. let's just bury this all and get back to the point of the thread: introducing ourselves.

@salathe: go ahead and introduce yourself! we all know the regex forum can be rather lonely.

Well, I'll keep it brief. Here are the usual details: I'm a 25 year old from Lancashire, England and mainly joined this place to be part of a more mature community (both in terms of the people and the site itself).  Academically, I have an MA in Archaeology from Edinburgh University (usually spend a couple of months every summer out in the field) and maybe some day I'll move over to that side of the fence for my career. As it stands now, I'm a PHP developer (currently unemployed) and am really pushing on with that as it is something that I love (and appear to be competent at).  I'm also a contributor to the PHP documentation (:rtfm:), trying to give something back to a resource that has been really useful to me over the years.  I enjoy reading (historical novels seem to be a current trend) and like to relax in front of a movie, when I'm not lurking in the regex forum.

Where is the test to find out what % you are in regex? I wonder what my overall PHP coding skill % is at...

out of curiosity, which came first: PHP development, or the MA? they seem rather divergent. (i'm not criticizing of course, considering i have a BSc in chemistry...)

I think his working it out via some statistics,
It's a Fact that 76.298% of statistics are made up on the spot,
Computers are good at following instructions, but not at reading your mind.

I dunno about that. A regular expression has a 0% chance of touching my penis.

the code is professionally made up but not working

I took into account nadeemshafi9 stats, so adjusted the figures to suite  ;)

my logic: so you look at a cheetsheet and see how much of it you can use without looking at the cheetsheet (oh hes actually quite smart, there must have been a reason why he was honoured by the university and given a first class degree in network computer science bsc hons)

im one of those people that was in top sets for every subject my entire life, then when i was in year 11 i flunked all the tests smoking pot and kissing girls and fighting bullies, then i stopped smoking, so i got college education, then i smoked, then i stopped then i got a degree, then i smoked, then si stopped i got a job, you see the pattern ?
