> We need more Haskell blog posts

I'll "microblog" one, at least: a few months ago I wrote a Haskell daemon to ping a JSON API & relay info to Riemann. The first attempt in Python had suffered from indefinitely hanging after a while, I suspect due to a library without timeouts on socket operations. The Haskell version has never gone down. It also has a nicer command-line interface because the option parsing libraries are great.
