in thread Looking for "random upvote" script

I'm missing your point. If something deserves a down vote, it needs it now, not six months from now. If it's bad advice or just inflammatory, many eyes will see it and some will respond. A "Best Practice" post which seemed fine two years ago, may be down voted if posted today, but I fail to see the reason why one would hunt it down and down vote it now.

[Corion]: Discipulus: I don't know whether I could really do that, but the init process itself mostly launches other processes, and the whole startup is just following a path of dependencies and making sure they are all running. Which basically is what ...
[Discipulus]: when at work my time is (temporarly) owned by the firm, so i do not care (coworkers whatch movies.. I code Perl)
[Corion]: ... make already does, except for files instead of programs. But maybe with some /proc hackery, that could be eliminated and one could use plain make :-D
[choroba]: systemd just makes is asynchronous
[choroba]: so, make -j
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah - but when writing Perl to save time (instead of having fun), it helps to look whether you're actually saving time ;) Why spend 5 minutes doing manually what you can spend three years automating? ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Oh, yeah :-D
