me: "do you think grub's config file language has a loop construct"coworker: "that is the most iliana question you've ever asked"
answer: it does in fact have while loops
more correct answer: apparently the config I'm writing uses the grub rescue mode parser, which does not have any loops or functions
so "reboot" is my loop
@iliana GRUB loader demos?
@iliana Mind blown.
@iliana I thought the partition map & MBR were how you loop - does it have an include statement? Becauuuuuse…
@antifuchs `configfile` loads other config files yeah
@iliana guess that should be intensely abusable for looping
@iliana Resetting the whole machine to implement a loop is extremely on-brand.
