Ask help to git… [bash] git config –global url.https://github.com/.insteadOf git://github.com/ [/bash] Credits: http://erlang.org/pipermail/erlang-questions/2014-March/078402.html

Dynamic languages troubles

I have read http://www.manageability.org/blog/stuff/chandler-failure and I think it is very danger way of exposing concepts.

I will try to fix some of the things said there, and to add also my two cents here :)
