Armstrong vs. Stroustrup

Tue May 18 00:10:06 CEST 2004


My NDA with Ericsson (un)fortunately does not allow me to go into the 
details and contents of the movie.. I would however have to second 
Mike.. For the sake of the reputation of Erlang (and its inventors), and 
the samity of the rest of us, keep it in the safe and locked up :-) If I 
am not mistaken,  Bjarne used it whenever he wanted to get rid of  
unwanted guests at CS lab parties.

A nostalgic Francesco
