Well, many thanks to all of you who helped me with discussion points
as well as resume proof that there are people out there using Erlang
(duh!!). Over the holidays I put together a prototype of a project and
was able to demonstrate something that ran fast and was surprisingly
solid (given the short dev time). Altogether, it made for a solid
open/shut case in Erlang's favor. Kudos to Joe Armstrong and rest of
the Erlang team who built such a wonderful tool. :)

My employer is now quite excited about the possibilities and looking
for Erlang people. If you're interested:


It's a pretty nice place to work, if I do say so myself..:)

Thanks again.
