what if we published a system administration handbook entirely in rhyming iambic pentameter

not sure how well this would work given that *most* config files aren't written in iambic/trochaic meter - network/interfaces is just an oddball in that regard

@diodelass I would purchase this, probably memorize most of it, and likely annoy social groups assorted and sundry with my impromptu spoken word performances thereof.

When the beatnik scene overlaps with the "config NIC" scene. :blobpeek:


The rules that guide administration
of systems arch to BSD
begin with truth most plain to see:
run ye not on systemd!

@diodelass i don't know if i could ever read it and actually grok it, but it'd be great fun to read regardless
