I am always interested in participating in open source projects and keen start-up endeavors.

My email is provided below in code (scrapers suck):

string secondWord; // 4 letters, meaning "rhythm" or slang for "exhausted"
string thirdWord;  // 8 letters, one who eats, drinks, ingests, or purchases things.
var email = ("one." + secondWord + "." + thirdWord + "@gmail.com").toLower();
Console.Write(email);

comment How assertive should I be in handling exceptions in objects?
@AlbinSunnanbo I use both tools right now, just a lot less. Meaning, if there is an exception I truly want to handle, I'll use a try catch, but I haven't gone around stuffing everything possible in try/catch blocks. There are a couple objects just out of practice i put in using directives like working with Streams, but otherwise, I have not been handling IDisposable explicitly. I'm trying to learn explicit places it should be considered necessity, and when it can be safely overlooked for the sake of clean code. that clarify or confuse further? :)

Thanks for the reply. I guess not "leaks" per se, but objects no longer needed lingering in memory? Isn't the StreamWriter scenario a common one where without a using statement it could potentially linger around in memory until the garbage collector decides its ready for the trash can? Perhaps I need to relearn what I thought I knew. :(

My understanding is that .Net's garbage collection will cleanup IDisposable stuff on its own, and that these statements are to help programmers be assertive and manually control when and how they want it done. If that's the case, I'm trying to figure out the places its most important for me to do the work, and the places its safe to let the .Net runtime be the whiz-kid it's supposed to be.

@JohnSaunders If that's the best place for it, I understand. Thanks for your help.
