An Old Sysadmin Tries Out ChatGPT

(Editorial note: Pretend this post is a Star Trek episode with folks spouting techno-babble, use the words as place holders, and feel the flow of the story...)

A while back, I built some anycasting DNS resolvers using bind on a loopback, and FRR talking OSPF to a router.  I finally decided I should hammer together a script to turn off FRR if there was something wrong with the bind process so the servers would pull themselves out of service.

Why not try this new ChatGPT thingee?

I won't bore you with the code that was created, but you'll see my thoughts, and the input I gave to ChatGPT as I worked through this problem until... the end?
