I will be on an aus-english course during the month of september.
I did take a uk (london) english course during last september.
I survived OK then.

If I can set it up in a not so complicated way and just let it run and
see (supposed) leaks.
Anybody can run it and find similar issues.
I can't run valgrind and certainly not at this moment (disk is kaputt)
but if it is so eay, why is it not routinely used?

I am not a programmer yes.
Am also not the n00b user that you see occasionally.

I just am somewhat ciritically looking at stuff.
And yes, my system doesn't help.
If it had enough horsepower the valgrind would have run by now. (not
taking the disk into account)
