Yep. In an event driven system this is perfectly necessary.

Other Systems might provide "blocking Read" functions that internally wait (potentially forever) for something to happen (e.g a message comes in from some sender). This is problematic, as while waiting, the system can't react on other stuff happening (e.g. a timer is scheduled, ...). So it is just fine that OSCII-Bot does not feature any blocking functions (but "sleep()", that should be use with great care), and works just "event driven".
