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.

% is also the comment character for PostScript and TeX...

% is the comment character

No, it's not. # is the comment character, and any language that thinks otherwise is wrong.

NCL thinks ; is the comment character. I use NCL every day, it's amazingly good at the things I use it for, and it is absolutely essential to my work. Nevertheless, the language is wrong about comment characters.

I think it's time for RightLex, a product that puts a correction lexer in front of every language that is confused about these things.

Dude, fuck Erlang. It's like uglier Lisp with fewer libraries. I've been trying to give away my Erlang book for a year and a half.

I'm eager to hear about experiences with 0MQ. I'll give you fitty cent to do it in Haskell.

I will check out Haskell next. As for 0MQ, I need an excuse to actually use it foor something.
