    The Glasgow Haskell Compiler now supports SSE/AVX SIMD instructions due to Geoff Mainland’s heroic efforts. This paves the way for data-intensive apps in Haskell that are faster than C code without much effort.

      @oj cat shopping? Couldn't be that bad...

        @mrkmcknz 2 to the power 8. 2 values to a bit, 8 bits to a byte. So 256 is the number of values in a byte :)
        bam
          App.net clients are getting pretty good and I'm really liking the 256 limit.

              Roy, osxmonad, bilby.js and the to-be-released Faja. Wish I could fork() myself.

                @jonsterling @kowey it's a bit tricky getting keyboard commands to work since Xmonad really wants to spawn X11 on a huge chunk of the default bindings. Going to have to rewrite them. But got a giant monitor at work and working on a Mac so hopefully soon :)

                  @oj @tacticalgrace was just talking about this: JavaScript virtual machines really are state in the art of VM technology. Let's just use them and ignore the "JavaScript" part
                  bam
                    @oj @tacticalgrace even if we replace the VMs in Firefox & Chrome tomorrow, we're stuck with using JavaScript for a long time.

                      @sloanb hard to be specific when it's kind of all of it. Haskell's syntax is just clean. Hard to compete with it

                        Proper tail calls in ES6. Awesome. #strangeloop

                              This is an extremely good walk through of the lambda calculus and Y combinator from @jimweirich #strangeloop

                                Got to talk to Lars Bak tonight. I now fully see that he's targeting the lowest common denominator (i.e. not good developers) #strangeloop

                                  Wonder how many type theorists were squirming in their chairs during the Lars Bak talk. I know I was #strangeloop

                                      ClojureScript does type inference. Did not know that #strangeloop
