"I want that to be Nitrogen!"

Nice! So do I! Let's make it happen!

"Well, yaws is not bad once you configure it, I suppose."

I've heard from a few people that Yaws might not be the best choice.  
Nitrogen is relatively loosely coupled to the underlying server, so I  
would certainly be open to swapping it for something else. What do  
you recommend?

Well, yaws is not bad once you configure it, I suppose.

I'm flattered! I didn't know there's 30 minutes worth of discussion  
in the subject :D.

Speaking of which, I was nursing my Erlang wounds and sulking just  
when your message came along. My spirits are much lifted after  
watching the screencast!

The reason for the sulking is that I just rewrote OpenPoker for the  
third time and have no idea whether it will truly scale now. I'll  
very soon find out.

The lifting of spirits is because I plan to offer a hosted poker  
solution and that needs a web front-end. I want that to be Nitrogen!
