Ring Benchmark - my first concurrent Erlang

Following the advice of Dave Thomas who said: “any developer should learn a new language every year” on RailsConf 2007 in Berlin, I decided that Erlang was going to be my challenge for 2008. However, the first months of 2008 passed without any Erlang until I listened to Joe Armstrong himself at Qcon in London. His talk was inspiring to me so right afterwards I bought his book and start reading it on my flight home.
