    Thank you choroba, well spotted. Reason #121 not to use windows!! That would make it 'C:\folder1\folder2\\'. Is that right?

    EDIT:People who use perl on windows must be that bit sharper, having to account for file separators also escaping special characters in perl code.

      I have been caught forgetting to double my backslashes in a Windows environment more times that I would wish to publicly recall.
        Thanks - it's nice to know I'm not alone!

[marto]: yes, the last time I saw them was in Berlin a few years ago, at the old Olympic stadium
[marto]: After Sunday I don't think I'll go see them again :)
[LanX]: Corion: come on, people are people! ;)
[Corion]: Naah, I think it's still an OK show so far. Their new songs aren't exactly great, but I'm not going there for new material anyway ;)
[marto]: I got the feeling from the last show that for big sections of it, they were not really into what they were doing
[Corion]: LanX: Sure, they can bask in my Halo
[marto]: more so than the previous show I saw
[Corion]: marto: Well, I think they go a tour every two years and I think it's hard to even get a connection with the crowd at a 20k people concert... But maybe after this time I'll stop too ;)
[Corion]: I still have to see the Pet Shop Boys live before they stop touring at all
[marto]: yeah, I think that as a group creatively they're done. I can understand how it'd be hard to stop the process, album/tour, album/tour, if that's pretty much all you've ever done :)
