      • for this so it's released sometime this month. :) Work has been crazy busy.
        • 9 extra days... which you'll probably need. It'll be like 25-26 Feb and you'll be done "early". Software schedules are like a piece of woman's clothing. Slips are essential and it's a bad thing when... more

      So does the parser run by loading screens? I wonder how few lines you could get away with.
