okay I have rewrite my project to use receive with spawn, but I still do not
get how to handle errors?  especially in the cloud?

what book is best for me to read?  and I cannot find online documentation
for how to use spawn + receive + messages to scale into the cloud?

that is my main worry: say I have something that uses spawn + receive +
messages.  how do I make it scale into the cloud?  where can I find online
documentation on this?  i want my erlang program to run on as many systems
as I need it to for however many users.  how do I do that?
