in reply to why a nodelet can be kept agains author wish?

Tye is exactly right on this. One of the only nodes I have with negative XP is one of the nodes I learned the most on. tilly corrected me on basic error handling, and our (tilly and I) ensuing conversation via CB ended up changing one of my mindsets and made me a better coder. I left it in that state as a reminder to me, and an example to any other learning monk that might benifit from tilly rightfully scorching me on simple issue.

The other issue I have is that I saw an interesting title today: eWeek article on open source, however the node did not reference where the other article was. I eventually found it, but a quick edit that said, "Posted earlier, see A Published Special Report on Open Source and Perl Justifications for enterprises" would have made life much easier.

There are reasons for reaping, but I believe as Tye does, to much is being reaped and deleted which does not allow others to learn from the posters mistakes.

"Nothing is sure but death and taxes" I say combine the two and its death to all taxes!

[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
[stevieb]: davido thanks for the link ;) I was being the typical lazy
[davido]: date parsing is hard. The more examples you can provide of the input (within reason) and expected output, the better.
