1. From the 0MQ FAQ:

Does ØMQ support AMQP protocol?

It used to. The feature was dropped to protect ØMQ users from infringement on AMQP-related patents.


AMQP was supposed to be the open standard that would do everything for everybody for message passing protocols. I would love to know just who managed to muck it up with patents so I could go stab him with a bazooka, as one amongst my friends often says. It's especially annoying to see the 0MQ people back away from AMQP, because their implementation was so fast they demoed it by having it relay live video frames.

2. Took a look at Erlang tonight. And they too have the habit of reassigning various keys on their keyboard from the purposes other languages use them, just to make it a little harder to switch gears back out of Erlang once you have switched gears into it. So % is the comment character, which means for string formatting they use the tilde, and so on. We hates that, don't we, my precious?

I know. You don't care. They key to happiness is not having to.
