Quotes of the Week

  • dafis: I thought a C++ friend class was one you allowed to touch your private parts
  • edwardk: any time i can help, just ask. i may not actually help, but i'll be sure to note your suffering.
  • edwardk: i have a lot fewer [haddock problems] now since i stopped bothering trying to document ;)
  • edwardk: Had i thought of it earlier i could have named trifecta kessel run. at this point it looks like it'll contain at least 12 parsecs.
  • ddarius: The history of iteratees is making a simple idea complex.
  • shachaf: You can never escape having learned monads. If you learn two monads, though, you can go back to only knowing one.
