I'm not a security researcher, just someone who codes semipro and has done low level stuff.

@Elizafox This is my biggest beef with computing in general. 90% of the people I tend to interact with have no idea what a pointer is; yet, they're expected to match wits with professional hackers and somehow manage to minimize resource utilization of their Node applications running on VM instances in the cloud.
