  1. Belated Christmas Pressies

    Took two deliveries at work today for my belated Christmas pressies (that I actually have to pay for myself). First one -- all the way from the United Kingdom:

    Real World Haskell

    It's Real World Haskell by Bryan O'Sullivan, Don Stewart, and John Goerzen. It was released in November 2008 by O'Reilly, which you can actually read the soft copy online. I actually have been waiting for this book to come out for a while, and would much prefer to sit down reading the dead tree version than reading on the flashy screen. I ordered it from The Book Depository from UK, which is the cheapest price I can find. For cheap books, give Booko a try -- best book price comparison engine for the Aussies.

    Last time I touched Haskell must have been over 10 years ago when I was still at uni. For the last 2 years I have been learning OCaml and was a little bit put off by its syntax. One new year resolution for me in 2009 is -- pick up Haskell again and make something useful from it.

    My second pressie is delivered from not that far away actually -- Parramatta.

    Nokia E71

    It's a Nokia E71, which I ordered from MobileCiti. My 3 Skypephone is going to retire soon, and looks like Android based Kogan Agora just won't cut it.

    I have just taken it out for a full recharge on my desk. More reviews coming soon.
