The Most Exciting Email In My Nerd History

This is the first time that the creator of my programming language of choice sends me an email.

Scala 2.9 was just released this week and the development team at Gravity are working to migrate our code base onto it. Just after our first attempt to run our unit tests, we hit a bug that we could not code around and hit the forums for answers. I found an already reported bug that matched our case as well and jumped on the ticket to receive updates. Later that day I saw a comment on it from Martin Odersky (the original author of Scala) himself. That was exciting enough for me, but the email…. WOW.

…okay, I can go back to my day now.
