So today, I'm in the vice president's office, showing him some last minute features I added last week, so he'd be able to show potential customers these features.
He was surprised at how quickly I got a text-stripping feature working (it was slated to take 2 weeks for some odd reason), and asked how I did it so fast. I told him all I had to do was use regular expressions.
He replied, "Wow! Regular expressions?! I didn't know microsoft had those now! You know, they stole those from Unix though, right?"
I seriously didn't know how to respond to that.
