comment Over thinking development
@haylem: sometimes I find putting ideas into issue tracking (if your project is large enough to have one) allows me to remove them from the back of my head. Knowing that they are visible to others in some way makes me feel like I don't need to constantly revisit them in my head (though there is a balancing act there too =]).

comment Working with data and meta data that are separated on different servers
Why will it break? There is a single copy of the meta data on its own server and the data collected is on its own server. Replication means the possibility of having one server get out of sync. I was thinking about replication, but I'm worried about the syncing issue.

comment F# performance vs Erlang performance, is there proof the Erlang's VM is faster?
@Ubermensch - While I have moved onto other things since asking this question, the idea of the application was to be an interactive simulation. Think of a wolf/bunny AI scenario where players could be hunters. The idea was to have each actor in the simulation be autonomous and just to have fun from there!

@PatrickHughes - I've run across actors, but I didn't read the agent page yet. Thanks for clueing me in!

comment F# performance vs Erlang performance, is there proof the Erlang's VM is faster?
@RobertHarvey - The optimist inside of me would hope that one day I would be writing a program that needs massive scalability, but in reality probably not. I think I'll look into F#. Thanks.

By "viable" I meant scalable. I know that having press doesn't mean that that language in necessarily better, but it seems that Erlang has been proven (at least by Ericsson). What do you mean by agents? Processes?

F# runs on the .NET runtime and Erlang runs on its own VM. Erlang's processes are considered to be lightweight vs languages that are in its domain (like Scala). For a simulation spawning nodes and passing a lot of messages, is the .NET/Mono runtime just as good as Erlang's VM or is Erlang's VM superior?
