What do I mean by the the title of this post?
Imagine yourself on the edge of a wide river.
Noticing the whirls and eddies of the river.
You watch as it the swirls and whorls and runs towards the ocean.
You see a tree log roll gently as it encounters some hidden eddy or obstacle and it rolls over.
You just know...
There's something there.
You could reach out and...
What caused that log to roll?
You know you have to be careful.
Of the hidden obstacle that caused that log to roll over just there.
That's what it's like examining software.
Sometimes you have to just...
Not just see, but *SEE*.
And see the logs.
And take note of the hidden obstacles.
Under the surface.
So when you decide to run a minecraft server for example.
Read the logs.
Or you could short circuit the process and watch the BBC series Sherlock.
And then go back and re-read the "Collected works of Conan Doyle".
Nah. Better to just randomly change parameters in the RC script right?
