in thread Little things ;)

Is there anywhere that losts courses in the UK?

I have never seen one, unfortunately, and it would be a very useful resource.

On that note, The Perl Journal used to allow contractors to post their details, and employers to check for suitable staff. As I used to get a reasonable trickle of work come in so I was sad to see it go.

Would anyone else like to see such a forum again? An internet jobsite for perl programmers only? If you are a programmer or an employer of perl programmers who would like to see something like this happen then /msg me... If enough people get in touch perhaps we can do something about it.... ;)

[james28909]: i am scraping a website and retrieving a date stamp of an article.
[james28909]: well time/data stamp of the article
[stevieb]: james28909: what's the problem/question?
[james28909]: it is not an absolute date like "27" or "31". sometimes it is like wednesday or friday
[james28909]: and i need to format those special instances into an absolute date instead of "yesterday"
[stevieb]: ask a question on SoPW, and include at least a half-dozen examples of the input, and at least one example of expected output
[davido]: Exactly: SoPW. This isn't going to be solved easily in the CB.
[james28909]: in need "yesterday" and so on, to be absolute like "1" or "31"
[stevieb]: ...and throw some of your existing code into the equation as well, just so readers know you've given a try at it ;)
[james28909]: ok
