A blurry, excellent existence.  I've mentioned that I started working
on a YAML parser and emitter for Ruby.  Yaml4r.  Well, it
finally works.  It handles the basics.  Well, except for headerless files and
multiple documents.  Many thanks to the Yaml-core list.  Just reading helped alot.

I sure appreciate Yacc.  And the Ruby incarnation, Racc.  I can't bear parsing characters
or using all regexps for larger works and such.  Whereas writing the YAML parser was such
a pain before, writing grammars was a lot less grunt work with Racc.

We just got a new coder here at work.  Very cool guy.  I mean what can I say: he brought in
nacho cheese.  Bottoms uP!  No, seriously.  It's such a relief to have nacho cheese around.
