Haskell: Write Yourself a Scheme in 48 Hours

I just finished Write Yourself a Scheme in 48 Hours. It's awesome! It took me a few weeks to finish it while riding the train.

One piece of advice, though. Don't do the exercises inline. You might be able to do them once you've finished the tutorial, but if you're able to do them all as they come, you probably didn't need to read the tutorial.

I found your blog browsing the Haskell mailing lists looking for mortals that had done the SI48H exercises.

Thanks for the advice about the exercises. They were killing my self-confidence.

Oh. Any my favorite new-to-me vim trick? using gv to re-select a previously selected visual block.

Excellent. I was hoping someone would find some relief by my post.

Excellent. Thanks! :)

I'm also working my way through that same tutorial, and I've started posting my answers to http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Haskell/Write_Yourself_a_Scheme_in_48_Hours/Answers. Hope it can be useful to you, and please add any answers you have for others to use!
