In this, I describe why Erlang is different from most other language runtimes. I also describe why it often forgoes throughput for lower latency.

TL;DR - Erlang is different from most other language runtimes in that it targets different values. This describes why it often seem to perform worse if you have few processes, but well if you have many.

In UNIX there is a specific error number which can be returned from system calls. This error, EAGAIN is used by the OS kernel whenever it has a complex state in which it is deemed too hard to resolve a proper answer to the userland application. The solution is almost a non-solution: you punt the context back to the user program and ask that it goes again and retries the operation. Then the kernel gets rid of the complex state and the next time the program enters the kernel, we can be in another state without the trouble.

So, I have made yet another userscript; this time for the readers of the Something Awful forums. This is not my first time doing so, and I have in fact created a group for Something Awful userscripts on userscripts.org.

Hej allesammen,

Jeg har fået et job med Klick! De har lige produceret en jul video med alle medarbejdere. Jeg er "friendzone Johnny" meme.

Hvis nogen er interesseret i at flytte til Canada, så ansætter de mange dataloger og leder efter høj talent. Jeg vil gerne tilbud mit hus som hjemme hvis i mangler et sted at bo i Brampton. Jeg kan anbefal DIKU med elite status. Klicks kultur minder mig meget om DIKU.

Glædelig jul fra Canada,

Tom Andersen

The company I work for (Klick) produced a holiday video featuring all the employees. You can win a Macbook Air, iPad Mini or vacation if you find enough memes. I am "friendzone johnny". I thought the people of DIKU would be excellent at solving this puzzle. Good luck.
