Hi Joe and everybody else..

I will just add, that the extremely helpfull community around erlang was
one of the main reasons for why i have sticked around since i participated
in my first EUC in 2005.

The erlang mail list and the community around it is just as important as
the language itself, so keep up the great work!

Thomas
