I'm sorry but this is horrible .ini-style code. Poorly thought out and easy to make a big mess. What if you say "execStart" or "execstart" instead of the specific case you used here? I really dislike when we step backwards in time. This should be elegant and extremely simple. Upstart is that for now. I have no complaints with upstart.

I accidentally became a Linux security expert by being in the right place when hackers attacked.

* /me gets job as Network Engineer
* Evil hackers attack network
* FBI calls us (we were an ISP)
* Boss gives me full access to all Linux servers and firewalls

The rest is history.

I do not believe in certifications. People should study the material and use it on a daily basis.

Well said. Spoken like a Buddhist :)

I'm a vegetarian who would not mind eating eggs or drinking milk or even eating honey. Killing animals is where I stop. Now plants on the other hand, I have no regards to "killing" them and eating them.

There is no easy argument to adhere to here. A lot of people eat dead animals and they seem to live just as long as those who don't eat animals. We all eat plants of course and I don't think we can easily avoid that until we develop some form of skin pigment to allow the production of energy directly from the sun (or whatever other source).

For the meantime, people should continue to be happy with whatever choice they make. I just hope that choice doesn't involve killing or supporting the killing of animals, which is just my opinion of course.
