Row Filler Followup

Since my post last week or was it the week before. The weeks are blurring by at the moment. Last week, I could swear it was warm and sunny here in Colorado, the fish were biting along with the mozzies and sitting on our deck you could here the 'crickets' chirping into the night. Back in July, we got nightly visits from a huge bear which I managed to capture on film. He was a sausage stealing, trash tipping pain in the butt but we were not going to argue :0)


Now its 27F, sorry 'Rest of the Worlders', I have been assimilated. Its imperial measurements for me all the way. I even know what a 'quart' is, I think in inches and cups for measuring. America is sometimes staggering in its arrogance for the rest of the world! Maybe a bit strong but you know what I mean.
Yep, its freezing cold the wind is howling, the windshield (another Americanism along with tail pipe, thats a good one) blower on the car can not keep up with the freezing rain and I have to scrape it to see. Come back Summer, maybe not the bear thou!

Anyhoo, my last post on row filling and the added requirement that I did not cover got some folks into action. Most notably, Lakshmanan and the Ice Man aka Ike Wiggins. Both of them were way ahead of me. I guess from a need, born of necessity i.e. get it done for a customer. Rather than my approach of, 'when I can find time', they have independently come up with solutions to handle the row wrapping issue I mentioned at the end of the last post.

Shout outs are due and if you use their methods, please drop a quick mail of thanks.

Lakshmanan's solution is available here. Some other great posts on EBS related tidbits (another PC'ed American term) available on his blog.

Ike's solution is available here Ike has also posted sample template and data here. Like the blog's new look and feel Ike, very suave!


Right now all I can fish for in my area is channel cats and they are simply boring, dont even get to go out on the boat and check out the new fish finder, simply have to sit down under the bridge.

That makes more sense than some of what I deal with in my field of long term insurance.

Omg, Lady Gaga took home 8 VMA awards last night! I am really proud of her wins and I like the Born This Way piece Lady GaGa sung also.

This may only mark the first update to the mysterious BMW coupe, which is seemingly (at least for now) based on a current-gen 6-Series, but the lack of quality images, video or information is already proving to be quite frustrating.Although we wish we could bring you more concrete information on this mystery car, we have little more than another video showing the aforementioned coupe driving straight at the camera. While we are certain it was by no mistake, the audio quality - or lack there of - manages to mask the sound of the vehicle sufficiently enough that we are still uncertain if there is an electric motor or a traditional gas engine powering the car.

I am not an enormous Lady Gaga fan, but I think that folks are giving her a little bit of a tough time. Sure, she's a little out there, but she also has talent. Her singing voice may be a refreshing change compared to the no-talent manufactured singers that are assaulting our eyes and ears of late.

Hi Tim - i've looked at Ike's solution to estimate the number of rows using ceiling(string-length div $cell_len) however I have a complex string containing carriage returns. Can you help?
