I've been working on this for a very long time, and I've constantly been adding new things I learn from time to time. I never really talked about it too much since I made it mostly for my own consumption but I think it might be useful for others as well.

It's a reference with tips and tricks on how I setup my #archlinux install as well as common problems one may encounter along the way. Feel free to let me know what you think, as well as contribute your own tips!

I'm still working out a few things, but I've been daily driving Arch Arm with SXMO since the day I got it and I've been really happy so far. So here's to Pine64, DanctNIX, SXMO, LinMob, and so many others!

Centralised messenger Signal has just announced that they are making part of their server software closed source. They claim it is to fight spam, but by using closed source they make it impossible for outsiders to verify the truth. This is worrying.

We really, really need a fully open, decentralised alternative to Signal.

There are several alternatives being developed, please support them:

➡️ @snikket_im

➡️ @xmpp

➡️ @matrix

➡️ @delta

➡️ @briar

➡️ @Jami
