Haskell hangs out in Austin, too... ;-) Usually at Emo's, or Casino
El Camino. Or old school night at Elysium. Look for the ripped
fishnets and the red beret.
BTW, beware her evil semi-look-alike: O'Caml. She's actually a he.
O'Caml's a cross-dresser. But easy --- if you're into that sort of

Actually, she's always quite happy to tell you exactly what's wrong.
You just won't understand it. ;-)
Couldn't match expected type `a' (a rigid variable)
against inferred type `Maybe a'
`a' is bound by the type signature for `filterNothings'
Expected type: [[a]]
Inferred type: [[Maybe a]]
In the second argument of `filter', namely `xs'
In the expression: (filter (const True) xs)
All that Maybe, Just, Either, Nothing, Forall, etc. stuff --- you'd
think she was equivocating. But nope --- she *always* has a very
precise idea in mind. It's just... complicated.
