I'd welcome any feedback and discussion about The Monad.Reader. Don't like the class file? Love the articles? Shout it out! --WouterSwierstra 10:38, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

Either those damn commies or the capitalist swine (mmorrow can't get his story straight on this) seem to have rasterized the logo -- what's the point of putting TMR in a PDF if the logo is going to be made of not one but TWO raster images?

--SamB 02:18, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

I'm not sure what you mean here... I think I've consistently used the same logo from Issue 6 onwards, but maybe I'm mistaken. --WouterSwierstra 08:34, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

A4, Letter, other editions

US-style letter paper is 8.5 x 11 inches, 18cm shorter than the A4 paper used here. It would be most useful to US readers to build a Letter version as well as the A4 version for general distribution. BrianSniffen 16:32, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

The layout

I think the twosided should be dropped from the latex class file, that would make it a lot more pleasant to read on a screen.

--Twanvl 13:50, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

Although those of use with wide screens quite like putting the pdf up in 2-page side-by-side mode in which the twosided option looks better!

--Pharm 11:26, 1 February 2007 (UTC) (I have an ordinary 4:3 screen at home though. TBH the twosided thing doesn't bother me either way...)

I think the twosided option is really nice if you print it. For me, this really outweighs any minor annoyances associated with reading it from a screen. --WouterSwierstra 08:34, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

The format

--Yang 17:04, 5 March 2007 (EST) Great publication, keep them coming! Please consider setting up an RSS/Atom/etc. feed for this.

I announce all the issues on the Haskell and Haskell-cafe mailing lists - can you think of any other places that might be interested? The announcements always make it to the Haskell Weekly News that has an RSS feed... --WouterSwierstra 08:34, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

--raould June 6 2007 Any chance of an HTML version (no matter how lame the results of an automated PDF2HTML might be)?

I'm a bit hesitant to release it more than one format. It means quite a bit more work for me. Unless there's an overwhelming vote for HTML publishing I'd prefer to stick with pdf for now. --WouterSwierstra 08:34, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

The content

--Mnislaih 13:50, 3 February 2007 (UTC) Wow! This issue of TMR is excellent. I am loving the tutorial style of all the three articles. Right now I'm in section 2 of Russell's excellent assembler and found that the newtype definition for the AssemblyCodeMonad needs to be:

newtype AssemblyCodeMonad a = 
     (RWS [(Label,Location)]
          [Either (Instruction Register) (Label,Location)]
          (Location, Integer)
  deriving (Monad, MonadReader [(Label,Location)], 
                MonadWriter [Either (Instruction Register) (Label,Location)],
                MonadState (Location, Integer))

TMR8: Please note that there is a separate talk page for the article Type-Level Instant Insanity
