Re: Lost my Position!

I was just gonna write a php parser to g=
o down through my entire list history.  My NYU account is IMAP so… no=
problem there.

Anyone ever done that before or have tool=
s / libs to recommend?
Or if anyone wants to write =
the parser I can focus on the frontend, which is my preferred territory…

And yes, it’d be easy to rig up a SNR rule system where you =
just specify words or something that you mod up or down.  Might be fun.=

As for the signal=
