Last week my MacBook died of a premature death at age 2. Out of necessity, I have been forced to borrow my wife's EeePC for a while and to use it as my main development platform. The unexpected thing is that it just works perfectly.

Both social networking and votable newsfeeds are one-dimensional. Combine the two and you get a kind of Pandora for stories, and for discovering people who like the kind of stories you do.

In this episode I introduce the concepts of implicit phasing, explicit phasing and multiple instantiation of modules. Moreover, I discuss various portability issues of the R6RS module system related to the different phase separation concepts.

This is the first of six episodes concerning the R6RS module system. The module system is quite new and it is the result of several compromises. As a consequence, it has some rough edge and writing portable code - specially for macro writers - is not always trivial.
