You're not the only one. RegEx should not be so difficult to learn.
It's just a straight forward set of rules. But like you say, it
just doesn't stick. I think half the problem for me is that 1and1
has some overriding HTACCESS settings and some of the things that
should work just don't. So, half the time, I think I am writing
correctly syntaxed RegEx and 1and1 is blocking it. The other
half of the time, I've corrupted the expression trying to fix what
isn't broken. That gives me a near 100% failure rating and when I
do get it working, I just chock/chalk that up to statistical error.
