Negations in Regex

Writing by on Friday, 26 of May , 2017 at 6:43 pm

If you are in the situations where you know what NOT to look for, but everything else is considered a match, then you need to negate the pattern and use something like this as explained on this permonks thread.


Here’s an example in Sublime Text.

Citizen Eco-Drive Skyhawk A-T JY0010-50E Review

Writing by on Monday, 18 of July , 2011 at 5:55 pm

Looking to buy really good wrist watches? I just got a new Citizen Skyhawk A-T and here’s an initial review on some of it’s features:

– Titanium Construction (keeps it light, approx. 12oz)
– Atomic Timekeeping (USA, Europe & Japan)
– Eco Drive Solar Powered
– 2 Alarms, Chronograph, Perpetual Calendar
– World Time in 43 Time Zones
– Back lit Display (for the LCD)

It’s looks great, stands out and is a very light watch given all it’s features. (You’ll have to shell out $200 more for the Titanium version.) Very impressive dials wrt the detail and fine craftsmanship that’s gone in. The amber back-light display is a nice new addition. You’ll never have to adjust the time nor the calendar on the 1st of the month. Time is accurate to the second.

Citizen SkyHawk A-T Eco Drive JY0010-50E

Keep in mind that the Atomic Timekeeping may not work in all areas at all times. Usually at night the Atomic signal is strong and by default the watch checks and set’s the time every night at 2am, 3am and 4am. Now trying to do anything real with the watch (like manually setting the time, the time-zone, resetting it etc.) is challenging, because it will definitely require you to read the manual. But it’s simple enough once you read the instructions.

So far, I love it but I’ve had it only for a couple of days. I would recommend this for someone who’s looking to buy a watch that will last!

Most of you might be familiar with net use which works fine for network drives

net use x: \\SomeHostMachine\SomeShare

For local drives use subst

subst z: c:\SomeFolder\SubFolder
