Response to: Garbage collection

You are correct in that I am no expert on garbage collection (or Valgrind apparently), and that is why it is only mentioned briefly in one paragraph. I apologize if I have incorrectly explained Java Garbage Collection but that is my understanding of how it works.

I think the more important point I was trying to make, however, is that regardless of how good it may get, GC is still no replacement for brains :)
