Ya. So in 1995 or so, I was introduced to the wide world of IRC and needed a nick. Now, at this time the reason why ended up on IRC was because I had started working on RC5-56 with the folks at At the time, I was an avid reader of Scott Adams. Because the RC5 project was also known as the Bovine RC5 project at the time, and cows were definately cool, I realized that Dilbert(tm) was missing a character. There was Dilbert, Dogbert, Catbert, Ratbert, and Bob but no ruminants, so I decided to spin off a new character called Cowbert.

[Corion]: I still somewhat wonder if it were worthwhile to replace init / systemd by make with a simple? Makefile listing the dependencies ...
[Discipulus]: i have a different opinion: automation is always worth: first i can use Perl (and this is good), then later you can reuse parts to automate others tasks. My $boss everytime say:'how much time you spend doing this?' So generally i present a perl solution
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yes, but the chart gives some limits on whether it's really worth spending time for saving your time. If you gain enjoyment, automating is still great, but it doesn't save time ;)
[Discipulus]: Corion are you would able to realize such thing? O_O
