[Discipulus]: yes LanX.. is so good to be appreciated (I fortunately have a big self estimation that compensate)
[LanX]: you can manipulate a html tree by addressing and replacing so called document objects (DOM) and from my experience the same methods can be used with any XML, though I didn't test all browsers yet
LanX just joking, playing "ego judo"
[marto]: good morning all
[Corion]: Hi marto!
[marto]: the race to the bottom continues, many people lost their job yesterday as a client moves to another outsourcer
[LanX]: brexit or perlxit ?
[Corion]: Ow, marto :-/ I hope you aren't affected (except for the looming dread of more work for the same pay)
[marto]: unrelated
[marto]: Corion, no we're already being g tupe transferred to another employer. This was a banking sector client. They provided a reporting platform using ancient tech
