The shell.

Every time I get a new LiveCD I always have some new piece of hardware 
whose module didn't make it into the kernel until the version which is 
one femtoversion after the one on the LiveCD.  Every time I have a LiveCD 
which covers all of my hardware there's always a dependency on a /lib/
firmware/something which the LiveCD dev could not possibly have 
anticipated (without scraping the web for every possible firmware that 
might be needed).  Everytime I get to the point where I have a LiveCD 
which addresses all of my hardware something happens in my life to keep 
me away from the project for six or ten months and I return to the first 
sentence of this paragraph.

I still don't know how to us iproute2 competently though I can sometimes 
bumble my way into creating a useable network.  Is there a concise 
tutorial?  Maybe I'll end up writing one...
