Hah! Funny thing is, if you understand what Erlang does, it really
doesn't/didn't sound like a joke. More info:
Note the first version was developed by Joe Armstrong in 1986. With a
name like that it's gotta be good. :-) Almost as good a name as
"Dave Austin", one of my ex-neighbors who was a pilot for US Air and
is now retired and moved to Monterey CA.
Interesting, per Wikipedia: the latest release of Erlang is R16B,
27 February 2013; 32 days ago.
I still prefer assembly language and C for REAL work.
