I do not know everything. Of course, knowing that I don’t know everything only means that I know how little I know, and that I know that I don’t know something when I see it.
Setting aside grammatical parlor tricks, this is an issue because the giant list of software that I found a few months ago is populated with a lot — and I mean a lot — of stuff that I just … don’t know.
Perhaps an example would be a better way to explain it. Arch has arpwatch in AUR, which comes bundled with arpsnmp — both of which are on that list.
But for the life of me, I can’t figure out how to use it, or why I would want to. Hence, no screenshots. 😦
I’m still pretty much a desktop user (even though my desktops are rather bizarre 😉 ), which means one of two things to me: Either I will never need arpwatch/arpsnmp, or I already use them and I am oblivious, because they’re buried deep under layers of other software that shroud them from view.
Both are possible, and both are fine with me. But what that means is that arping, arpoison and arpspoof are likewise mysteries to me. Maybe I will never in my life need them, and maybe I use them every day and just don’t know it.
And so I’m back to where I started, admitting exactly how little I know.
