Just the fact that the word "hitherto" appears in the first few pages is promising ;)

Nope, haven't read any book on ML
(not a full book, I should say, I've read a few choice chapters on the Real World OCaml book)

I'm looking at the contents+preface now, and I'll at least read ch9 of that book
I love the text on information and warning boxes... someone's taken great care in finding examples :)

@magthe clients are for noobs. I hand craft a TCP connection to the Gitter server and send/receive packets every-single-time. 😂
JK, obviously ! What are you using ?
Ah, you're probably using the irc protocol ? Are you ? I use the web/mobile clients.
