On coding screw-ups

Hear Ye, Dumbass Dev:
Regular Expressions should
not be abused! Bad!!

Way to go, buddy, you totally screwed over the mobile application’s ability to scan Item Barcodes. That was clever. In the future please do not use completely broken regular expressions; I don’t care if Java can sort them out and make sense of them - .Net can’t. Pedantry is your friend in this particular situation.
