Whether that's actually the case or not... this response makes me believe you've possibly worked in tech support at some point in time. Entirely off-the-wall and entirely plausible/likely all in one.

    Formally, no. But looking back it seems that I've somehow informally fallen into that role, for those around me, almost everywhere I've worked.

    My favorite 'tech support' story: Re: Lost in the Translation

    FWIW: I think that the 'secret ingredient' between a good programmer and a great one, is intuition.

    (That doesn't mean I think I am a great programmer, my intuition is far too sporadic.)

    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

[ambrus]: So that, or if you really want something agnostic to the loop, then use curl multi. Its interface is quite reasonable (unless you use an old version),
[ambrus]: though it's very C-like (serious use of varargs so easy to pass the wrong type), and there are some minor problems (busy loop because it doesn't use the same timer as your event loop, so you have to artificially delay timer callbacks by a small amount).
