Once upon a time, I tried to learn ip.
It does not stick in my memory.
The fires burning from systemd
Still feel fresh and hot to me.
Too hot to think of words more pithy.
But when I left RH behind I felt free.

For a year or two.

When the inevitable happens, I'll probably just kill myself trying to
rewrite the whole thing from scratch, with a unified,logical basis,
and short, concise commands that don't try to take over the whole
system and the kitchen sink.

Just leave me alone in my codgerism.
