Re: old skool

That's the safe default mindset I think everyone should have but, there's no way to realistically read every line of code and be sure about everything in all things. There's plenty of Boost libraries that you'd have to spend 6 months to fully understand it all because, just because you understand the exact code in front of you, that doesn't mean you fully understand specs behind them to make sure that there's no flaws Boost's TCP library springs to my mind and while you maybe can learn all that, I'm simply "rolling with it" (especially since I'm solo).
