Update: Jeez, I really didn't think I had to resort to <humour></humour> tags...

Welcome to the Internet my friend. The man on your left is a communist grammar nazi with a loaded 9mm who is currently re-reading your post for the 8th time looking for typos. The man on your right is jaded programmer who has not slept in 72 hours, is trying to meet a deadline, consumed a near lethal dose of caffeine, and is about to be informed he's getting laid off. The man wearing the tin foil hat behind you thinks that you're a microsoft operative sent to kill him. The programmers who wrote the software you're currently using were all hooked on crack. Good luck!

Some people say they fought in 'Nam. I say "so what, I posted on Perlmonks."

Apologies to Denis Leary.

[james28909]: yep, i am scraping a websites date/time stamp from an article. none of that is relevant though because the strings i get are as expected. the returned data from the website is the list of @weekdays
[james28909]: i need to convert those @weekdays to an numerical date based off of scalar localtime
[james28909]: i have thught about this and though about it lol
[james28909]: also remember, that if 'Today' is may 1, then Yesterday is not may 31 lol
[james28909]: theoretically speaking ofcourse
