Boldewyn is the name of the donkey in German fables (at least, the ones from Goethe). Despite its bad name, a donkey is an animal with its own head and quite a portion of wit.

As someone pointed out once, if you say to a horse to jump down that abyss, it would happily do so, whereas the donkey would give you a kick where you deserve it to.

And someone else pointed out, that laziness is a core requirement for a good developer...

comment RegEx for time in JavaScript
I also linked to the Wikipedia article above. Tl;dr: It's a way to cater for minimal time differences caused by Earth's a bit irregular orbit around the sun.

comment RegEx for time in JavaScript
This problem (validating time input) has so many facets, that can go horribly wrong. E.g., have you heard of leap seconds? Yes, that's right, you can have 61 seconds under certain circumstances. It is of extreme importance, that you define clearly, under what conditions the regex shall be used and what the expected outcome is.

comment Add stdin as another file to a tar archive
Thanks! That's basically how I'm doing it right now. Doing a mktemp, adding it to the archive with --transform=s/tempfile/VERSION/ and then deleting. I was just hoping to make this step a little more concise with some kind of pipe magic.

comment Regular expression is not working
Your regex basically searches for a literal string ` _ - + ; % 1, 2,3`, prefixed with one other sign. I don't think this is what you meant to achieve. Can you be more specific about what the regex should and should not do?

comment In HTML "href" automate
Welcome to StackOverflow, @Tom! The thing inside the href attribute is a URL. There are nice explanations on the web like tutorialspoint.com/html/understanding_url_tutorial.htm, de.slideshare.net/ProdigyView/url-parts-tutorial, or doepud.co.uk/blog/anatomy-of-a-url and there is also an official specification: tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986

comment In HTML "href" automate
Small addition: You can have a : in a relative URL, but then you must escape it: :%3A. Then it is not recognized as scheme separator anymore.

comment IE 11 jumps to embedded Google map after page load
Good idea, but it’s null (on the freshly loaded page). Also I found a page, where the jump can be reproduced reliably, even after a browser restart. I'll update the question.

comment printing string to HTML page in python
You're welcome! (Also welcome to StackOverflow!) For your next questions, please read "How do I ask a good question" in this site's FAQ. When the question lacks basic understanding, that might have been acquired with 10 minutes worth of Googling, the question is likely to be closed without anyone caring to answer it. Specifically, in this case you should've looked up basic HTML first elsewhere on the web. If you're stuck, come back and ask any time (say explicitly what you achieved already!), but, please, not the other way round.

comment giving error on getElementById
@Pallavi I voted to close the question, since it is no further relevant to anyone after you fix your own code. How do you find these errors yourself? In your browser, open the web console. Usually it will show you a detailed error (incl. line) where something went wrong.
