comment Type based collection partitioning in Scala
What is this sorcery! I want to understand this so bad (I'm writing Scala for a living for a few years and know Scala pretty well, but this type sorcery with Scalaz / Shapeless / Algebraic types / Macros and those :+: (union type?) has always both baffled me and intrigued me. I keep saying to myself that this is a distraction, that I don't need it for my day to day job (and I don't most of the time) but my ego doesn't let me rest until I understand all of it. (and I can understand CanBuildFrom and type classes! you would think I would give it a rest) where do I learn this inside out?

comment Cannot construct a collection of type ...Inclusive[Long] with elements of type Long based on a collection of type ...Inclusive[Long]
Thanks! great answer. one quick question - which books / training / do you recommend to get to the same level of understanding you have? :) I mean unless you are a typesafe / EPFL employee, even experienced Scala developers I know don't understand the type system into that level of detail (and most books don't go down to that level either). What's your secret source to becoming a Scala guru? :D

comment String interpolation in Scala 2.10 - How to interpolate a String variable?
did you add the val name = "World" before? I think it helps the type inference, and without it you'll indeed need to include the type of name... in other words, I don't know if $name is shadowing the parameter name or not...

comment How to set time zone of a java.util.Date?
It seems the only place where it mentions timezone is for the toString methods... using the user's time zone... It does contain a time zone by the way, the timezone is always UTC (Epoc is 1/1/1970 00:00:00 UTC, no?)
