[erlang-questions] Farewell to Erlang

With my help I hope you receive at least 11 emails on Erlang today. :)

I'd like to say hello to the group. I've been interested in Erlang for ages
and the last few weeks I've finally been doing something about it. Learn
You Some Erlang for Great Good has been educating and entertaining me
thoroughly, making learning the language a joy.

My immediate goal is to write a small project to backup files to Amazon
Glacier, but eventually I want to find a job that involves Erlang. After
learning Erlang, Python has lost its luster, as has Go, not to mention Java
and Clojure.

By the way, I'm pretty sure the original message was an April Fools joke.
At least I hope so. :)
