No Rest for the Wicked Arch-Linux User

01.01.22 and I’m curiously switching on my New lappytoppy UltraOrc and …

System update!

โ€ฆ a few seconds later I get notified about impending system updates waiting for me to install them. ๐Ÿ˜ And not only normal Pacman updates but AUR, too! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Guys, I know you love your computers and more than that, Linux, and even more you love ArchLinux โ€ฆ but on the first day of the year, when you’re supposed to lay in bed, unconscious, in puddles of your own vomit, and totally hungover, sending out computer updates? I doubt there weren’t even any people on the receiving end. Well, apart from Orca. ๐Ÿ˜ But Orca ain’t real, she’s the one of 7 billion earthlings without a single drop of alcohol in her body. No, there are more, hardcore yogis, fanatical religious Americans, muslims, teatotallers, buddhists โ€ฆ but they aren’t famous for using ArchLinux. So thank you very much for doing all the work just for a single girl at the proverbial ass end of the world, so she can update shit she normally never uses?

AUR update!

I hope you at least had fun. Or whatever the analogy of fun is for geeks. Me, I’m just feeling pampered and well-cared for by the caring ArchLinux devs and retainers. =^.^=

You won’t get that level of service from Microsoft and Apple!

    • Teehee. It’s a bit awkward but you’re right. It’s said about Arch users when we don’t get updates after more than 5 hours, we become very nervous and agitated, right? So of course the devs took care of our special condition. ๐Ÿ™‚

      That’s why I wrote that I always feel in good hands as an Arch user.

      And that’s also why I love to be in both worlds, the bleeding edge of EOS but also Manjaro’s more relaxed update path. Day is already half over … and still nothing blinking and beeping on my Manjo screen. ๐Ÿ™‚
      And I’m not the least little bit concerned about anything. ^.^

  1. Ooooh Black Arch!

    That some geeky shit for paranoid power users and/or hackers. And it comes with the most uncomfy desktops. Quite a jump from the super nice family friendly Mint, isn’t it?

    I don’t even know what Network security means. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
