19:03 jeffreykegler From http://organicsearch.agency/conversations/pegex-is-pretty-interesting-too/: "Marpa is fast, but it's also fast at driving you insane."
19:04 jeffreykegler I wonder if he means that as a bad thing. :-)
22:41 ronsavage I clicked on the link. The page said Nothing found here. Try a Search? But when I typed in the search box I got a series of tildes. Weird.
22:45 lucs ronsavage: Maybe you accidentally included the trailing ":".
23:02 ronsavage You're right! Zaps colon, waits, waits, yes a real web page

23:59 jeffreykegler There's the link again, without the colon.  I'm not sure where it's from -- it looks like the log of some sort of chat room.
