This is a series designed to help node operators understand some of the more arcane commands associated with the TheNet X-1JR4 node firmware that's in wide use throughout our state. It's a work currently in progress, so as of now, it is incomplete.
It's meant to be a plain-American-English way for node operators to learn about a very complex system. The original documentation is good, but was written by folks from other countries whose English usage is a tad different than ours. Some people might find that a little difficult to weed through, and that's why I wrote this series.
As each part is completed, it will appear in two places - here and in the Badger State Smoke Signals . It'll appear here first, of course, as my publication deadline is on the 19th of each month.
