So after several couple of days of checking out various esoteric programming languages with Joe, I've gotten on a kick of learning some new language. No real reason; just because. So that new language at the moment is Erlang. There's a whole sad story behind this that involves CouchDB, Lotus Notes, and Joe, but I've been reading quite a bit about the lang and boy is it a doosie.
In other news, Ubuntu is just different enough from Redhat based distros to be frustrating. There's a good tutorial linked below to get one's self setup with apache and ssl.
