comment UK Postcode Regex (Comprehensive)
@Dancer To keep these regex's even remotely manageable, they tend to support either upper or lower case postcodes, but not both. The documentation uses upper-case throughout. From a validation point of view, you would write it to support one, and change the case as needed. With regards to the space issue, the docs state "The first part, or Outward Code, is separated from the second part, the Inward Code, by a single space" - the space is therefore required.

comment Force NuGet pack to use short folder names for PCL projects
Thanks for that Matt, do you know where I'd get the PCL profile XML files from? Is it best to grab them from my local machine or is there a standard location?

comment What's the difference between the webrole onStart() event and Application_Start() global.asax event?
You probably wouldn't want to configure your IoC containers in the RoleEntryPoint - this runs in a separate app domain to your site (see the section "Accessing Static Members from RoleEntryPoint and your web site"), and so can't really talk to it.

comment Renting LEGO Service in UK
Hi Paul, and welcome to LEGO Answers. We're a little different here in that we're not a discussion site but are a Q&A site - we're great at answering questions that have clear, definitive answers. Do you have a specific question about letsgoplay.co.uk (for example quality of customer service, etc.) that isn't covered by their site already?

comment How to replace a number in a file name but subtract 1 from it?
Regular Expressions are a method for finding patterns within strings, they don't really know about numbers (beyond the fact that are a limited subset of characters that can appear in a string). Similarly, SED also works with strings. You will probably need to look at AWK as a mechanism for providing some additional user-defined functions that can handle the subtraction for you - there's nothing in regular expressions that will do that.

@user2813274 - You should probably post this as an answer - I know we prefer longer answers if possible, but I think there's not much more to it here ;)

The thing is, as we're the poor stepchild with little or no love it would be nice if the "fallback" we have actually worked for us ;)

I've just noticed this prior art, and the answer in their question also fails on my phone...
