Into the Void

Ever heard of Void Linux? Me neither until a little while ago. My friend had orginally introduced me to Void when I was looking at going back to Arch Linux a few years ago, stating that it was (in many ways) a vastly superior system. I was intrigued, but I ultimately ended up sticking with Arch as I was familiar with it and was unwilling to give up on using the AUR at that point.

The job is time and attention demanding, and sometimes you simply have to tell someone that things they want are not possible.

More writing

I’ve been writing posts on this website for a little while now, mostly relating to my technological exploits and sysadmin misadventures. While this is a big part of my life at the moment, it’s not the only thing I do. I’m going to try and write a bit more about non-technology things just to try to encourage myself to focus on other things alongside computers.

New Site

As the astute among you may have noticed, this site has undergone some changes over the last couple of days. That’s because I’ve now completely moved away from Wordpress and destroyed my old server in favour of a different provider.
