The Migration to Arch

I finally did it A post after such a long drought. I’ve been busy working on lots of little projects, and I realized that I really ought to take the time to write on the blog sight I take such pain to keep up and running. You might be thinking to yourself, pain? Shouldn’t this be like a set and forget sort of ordeal? Well, it would be, except that I tinker too much for my own good....
