Well if it doesn't allow something like ^[a-zA-Z0-9]+ then it's not a powerful
enough RE engine to begin with :^P
and while we are on the subject of PAN problems, sometime a few months back the
estimated download time and size display became broken, displaying wildly
errratic and sometime huge negative numbers in the display. Grab 100 or so RAR
files and block save them. Then add 100 or so more to the queue while
processing the first batch. You should see really bogus values on the download
status window. Thing is, this used to work flawlessly, but now does not...and
I cannot trace it to a change in PAN itself, but possibly a change in a third
party support library?

About my Fruity predicament.

10.6 for real now, not even keeping the security up on it
OTOH many 3rd-party apps still support 10.6, apparently
there's not that much difference in the SDKs of these
versions of OSX.
Supposedly I can run with 10.7 aka Lion and continue to be
supported by Apple, but it has no support for Rosetta (which
emulates PowerPC very well), nor 32-bit (fortunately I do
have a 64-bit CPU), and will need to adopt some Dumber stuff
on 10.7. But 10.7 is absolutely the official end for this
iMac model, because it has 32-bit EFI/BIOS and won't be
supported on later versions of OSX.
> Apple won't update the BIOS here
either, so it is effectively EOL'd. But I do know
about a project that might have a way to provide a
front-end-fakery to at least make it SEEM it has the 64-bit
BIOS/EFI kernel calls, it's only for OSX tho, I still
can't run e.g. Tails on it AFAICT.
