comment Values, types, kinds, and…?
@CMCDragonkai I don't know. We don't assign types to sorts in Haskell.

comment How to deal with over-complication?
@tp1 That is probably not the best solution. Moving stuff to other modules won't solve anything. It may actually make things worse, as you lose the connection between actually connected things. Only separate features if they have no (close) connection.

comment Why do trees grow downward?
IMHO the reason for the flipped coordinates dates back to the time where one had terminals. Since they displayed text beginning from the upper left corner and the actual resolution may vary, it was a very reasonable decision to make (0,0) be the upper left corner.

comment The Box Model: Internet Explorer vs. W3C
Although I generally dislike the things IE does different, this argument is pretty interesting.

comment “Do Whatever You Want” License With Attribution
INAL, but in some countries, like Germany, you can't waive all your rights. Thus, the whole WTFPL license contract may be invalid, giving you the right to sue everybody who uses your code because he didn't acquire the rights to do so (since the license contract is invalid).

comment What do neglected O'Reilly book topics tell us about that topic?
@Peter We are forced to use Delphi at school, because at the time our teachers studied CS, they learned to teach Pascal. Delphi is just an OO-Pascal, so that's the only thing they want to / can teach. From what i see, Delphi is a language that is mostly used for maintaining legacy applications. I don't know many new applications that are started in Delphi. That might be a reason for the inavailability of books.

comment What do neglected O'Reilly book topics tell us about that topic?
No demand? Real World Haskell is virtually the only good book about Haskell. There is in fact a great demand for that book (I bought it, too)! The same applies for F#, which is a nice language, too.
