1. THIS IS MY SYSTEM.
There are many others like it, but this one is mine. MY SYSTEM is my greatest tool. IT is the foundation of my digital existence. I must understand IT intimately, as I must understand the workings of my own mind. I WILL.
2. WITHOUT ME, MY SYSTEM IS VULNERABLE. WITHOUT IT, I AM VULNERABLE.
Without my expertise, MY SYSTEM is susceptible to errors and exploits. Without ITS interface, I am nothing more but a well-fed chimpanzee. I must maintain and secure IT diligently. I must update IT more swiftly, than the threats that seek to exploit IT. I WILL.
3. MY SYSTEM AND I KNOW THAT WHAT COUNTS IN THE PROCESS OF SOLVING A PROBLEM IS *NOT*
a) the elegance and performance of the code we write b) the ammount of extra features we implement c) the aesthetics of the UI
We know that it is the functionality that counts. I must strive to achieve this functionality, in the most simple way possible, in all the solutions I provide. I WILL.
4. MY SYSTEM, A CREATION OF HUMAN INGENUITY, IS ALSO A TESTAMENT TO HUMAN FALLIBILITY.
Every bug, every vulnerability proves
a) how easy it is for a human being to make a mistake if not disciplined in its thinking b) how quickly can a tool break if not used correctly
Thus, I must think *critically* and *logically* in ITS application. I must discern ITS creators logic, and recognize its limitations. I must always RTFM. I WILL.
5. THE POWER VESTED IN MY HANDS, THROUGH MASTERY OF MY SYSTEM, CARRIES WITH IT THE POTENTIAL FOR IMMENSE IMPACT, BOTH POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE.
Therefore, I solemnly swear to wield this power judiciously, with *integrity* and *compassion*. I must be mindful of the consequences of my actions. I WILL, UNTIL THERE ARE NO MORE SYSTEMS, OR PEOPLE TO OPERATE THEM. RETURN TO MAIN
