Indeed. +Edward Kmett speaks:

"...types are for fallible people, like we all are. They help us reason and catch our mistakes, because while software has grown more complex, we’re still stuck with the same old brains. If they tell you they don’t need types to catch errors, tell them that they must be much smarter than you, because you sure do. But even more, tell them that all the brainpower they use to not need types could turn into even greater, bigger, and more creative ideas if they let the compiler help them."

The following letter is not about what "old hands" know and newcomers do not. Instead, it is about lessons that we all need to learn more than once, and remind ourselves of. It is about tendencies that are common, and understandable, and come with the flush of excitement of learning any new ...

I'm thinking that the web needs a Markdown variant that more fully supports the semantic elements of HTML5 now that it is coming up on a wider front. "Semantic MD"? A lot can be achieved just by decent parsing and sensible output defaults, but it leads to rather stiff results for content authors.

At http://www.bugthunk.net there is a Bootstrapped (i.e. nicely, albeit generically looking) version of the GHC User Guides. I made them just for myself, since I have started perusing the aforementioned piece of literature as of late, but I felt that sharing them with anyone who wishes to use them is no bad idea. There are actually two versions, one with headers made anchors, and one without. I have changed the HTML sources only as pertaining to the anchors/headers issue, apart from this they are identical to the official one. You can download them as TAR:s, or browse them online (links provided on root page at the supplied location).

Unimportant Side Note: I find browsing online is better, since browsing them locally means Firefox does not remember re-scaling the pages. Don't know if this is an issue in Chrome, though).

May this find you in good health! :)

Nja, det visar sig att man först betalar 8000 SEK, och sedan får använda dessa pengar att köpa erbjudanden för 50-100 kronor att lägga offert på... Tack, men nej tack :)
