More Than Machines?

Face to face they stand
Brain to brain
Two-eyed flesh machine
And one-eyed plastic terminal
Interacting systems
Inputting, outputting, precious data.

Face to face they sit
A complex team
Driven to perform
With error-free precision
In a controlled mini-world
Ruled by the god of technology.

Face to face they lie
Worlds apart
Stark, cold plastic eye
Flashing programmed data;
Warm, sensitive flesh eyes
Flashing non-programmable twinkles.
Face to face they are
A new species
Ruled by the god of technology.

## Options ------------------------------------------
##

# The "Options" Keyword allows you to set some boolean 
# switches:
#
# growright - The graph grows to the left by default.
#
# bits -      All the numbers printed are in bits instead 
#             of bytes ... looks much more impressive :-)
#
# noinfo -    Supress the information about uptime and
#             device name in the generated webpage.
#
# absolute -  This is for data sources which reset their 
#             value when they are read. This means that 
#             rateup has not to build the difference between 
#             this and the last value read from the data
#             source. Useful for external data gatherers.
#
# gauge -     Treat the values gathered from target as absolute
#             and not as counters. This would be useful to
#             monitor things like diskspace, load and so
#             on ....
#
# nopercent   Don't print usage percentages
#
# integer     Print only integers in the summary 
#             below the graph (No Kilo, Mega, Gigas) ... 
#
