So, it turns out that I'm not the first one to blog about the experience of writing a simple linked list as a newcomer to —I just saw this post from about a year ago: rcoh.me/posts/rust-linked-list

But that post decided it was "basically impossible" and switched to —I'm glad I stuck with it. I feel like I learned a lot!

(If you missed it, here's the post where I wrote up what I learned: codesections.com/blog/javascri)

@codesections
Am I wrong in recalling that it was basically only an issue if you tried to do it in safe code, and that using "unsafe" blcoks made it straightforward?

@cathal
No, that's not wrong—and making the jump into `unsafe` was exactly what I did. That's part of why I felt like I learned a lot from it; it was the first `unsafe` code I wrote, and a great intro to how could can be `unsafe` without actually being *unsafe*.
