I know what I said, but my in-laws made a surprise visit and are
staying and I'll be unable to attend tonight.

This sucks.

Michael is skipping out today too so I'm probably just going to call this one off.

I'm not ready to quit yet. I do think my interest has decreased some
since we started; I noticed I have not been reading Programming Erlang
as often as I once was. But I just got into the concurrent
programming section of the book. Maybe since we've taken a few weeks
off, I'll be ready to get back into it next week.

I'll try to work out book problems until I hit a wall, and come with
questions to discuss next week.

I'm still interested in learning erlang- unfortunately, I'm interested
in learning several things and dont have time for everything. In the
end I choose activities based on:

1. potential for fun
2. most likely to be used for work
3. most likely to be used as a foundation to learn $x
4. most likely to actually work

For me, #4 was a problem here because, I didnt have an immediate need
for using it. Or rather, I might have an immediate need but I'm not
sure how to make it work just yet.

I still like you guys. I hope we can be pals even after camp is over.

If we want to continue to do this we could try some other ideas:
1) Virtual meetings over some sort of video chat.
2) Scale back the meetings to once every other week or once a month.
4) Come up with a more enticing project.
5) Have meetings on roller coasters.

Just some ideas.

#5 sounds exciting, but in the end, i would most likely vomit at some

On another somewhat unrelated note, I recently saw this on reddit:

Joe Armstrong's (Erlang's creator) Erlang library:

I like rollercoasters, but they're usually too small for me.
