So my help desk aka Junior Systems guy was trying to use systemctl on an Ubuntu 14.04 box. Thing is – 14.04 doesn’t default to systemctl/systemd.
You have to do it the old school way – look at /etc/init.d and /etc/rc3.d
To decode that last – rc is the run level. In fact rc3 is multi-user with networking.
Too funny. Now Ubuntu 16.04 is systemd so you have to use systemctl to do everything. Bit of a learning curve for an old school Unix/Linux guy like me.

I haven’t a clue what you are talking about, but I enjoy reading your cleverness !
Yeah I have to leave a lot of that out of social interactions. I know I’ve gone too far when I get either a horrified reaction or deer in the headlights.
