I can understand that--when I have had past opportunities to work with those
who are more experienced than I, I tried to pull all the knowledge I could from
them. That kind of learning is hard to beat.

I agree, asking questions is a good thing. I try to look online first: google,
Erlang FAQ, man pages, etc--but asking questions publically can at times be
necessary, and generally leads to a better understanding of some topic for all
subscribers.

Good luck and have fun with future Erlang projects!
