Hi Kent, 

Just wanted to say thanks for the advice on the regular expressions.
I've just created a regular expression which finds all 267 applets, my
.index iterations were producing some cockeyed results, so I tried re
in desperation, and it works, so simply. Looks pretty menacing, but
it's good.

Got to say, that re is very powerful, but that redemo.py you
recommended is brilliant for a beginner. I just wrote my re pattern in
there, and used it to troubleshoot.

So yeah, thanks again.

And with it comes the only basic human duty, to take the consequences.
