I miss the day's of manual binary code... all those 1's and 0's!

All that code written in text leaves it too easy for kids today!

Get off my lawn!

In all seriousness though regex has already in the previous thread
been shown as useful for filtering log files.... and code is now
written in text?! Was the last aspect of coding you saw before punch
cards or something?
