Ah yes, that's why on all new cars you always have the option to start them
with a hand crank - after all, that was a feature that was ubiquitous in
cars, and in real world engineering, features are never dropped

I own a 1919 Model-T Ford depot hack - and I have the steel rod in my
wrist to prove it. Some technologies need to die. But it does give
me something in common with Wolverine.

Nifty, however in piston driven automobiles, there still exists the
crankshaft, the hand crank was replaced by an electric crank (Starter
motor?). ;)

While ifconfig has never tossed me ten feet and broken my arm... I don't

[word?] than ifconfig.

why do coders (or whoever pushes forth *new* crap) think this is
What is it you can do in ifconfig that you can't do in ip?
