while waiting for some code to run i have just been having a read of a few blogs. i cam across this and couldn't disagree more. if you take that argument to it's logical conclusion then you wouldn't, for example, be allowed to drive a car unless you new the intricacies of its fuel injection system! computers are not the preserve of us nerds who like to get under the hood and find out how they work. if they were then we would be condemned to having to compile our own os and download daily builds of python!
