_Learning Erlang

% My first #erlang function:

-module(tutor).
-export([seqx/1]).
seqx(0) -> [];  % (Not robust enough)
seqx(I) -> seqx(I-1)++[I-1].

My first #erlang session

(Line 1 was a compile error):
2> c(tutor).
{ok,tutor}
3> tutor:seqx(5).
[0,1,2,3,4]
4>

BTW, Google+, we need markup for monospace. For code, yes!

The Book has arrived!

I'm not sure I was expecting 700 pages

See you all in three months' time, with luck and concentration.

Interesting article; food for thought there. I confess I haven't started to read the book yet, as, I suspect, once I start I'm going to spend three months offline (that's what happened with Rawls' Theory of Justice).

A Disappointing Letter from PlusNet

I wrote to PlusNet a couple of weeks ago, concerning the recent judgement of the European Court on the legality of indiscriminate data retention.

Here's their disappointing reply. I have redacted my address and the name of the person replying,, and added the highlight box.

I guess I'll be phoning Andrews and Arnold shortly.

George Orwell was only partly right. His vision is excessively optimistic.
