It’s a new year, so it’s time to reflect back on the tools I used last year, how they’ll change this year, and how they might change in future. It’s still an idea I’ve completely stolen from CGP Grey / Cortex, but I think it’s useful, fun and interesting. I’m

It’s that time of the year again: time to look back at how I work, the tools I use, and how the next year might look. I’ve been working from home basically full time since the UK went into lockdown 17th March. It’s been quite an adjustment barely leaving the

Recently, I bought myself a new server from Kimsufi, to function as an off-site backup server. And after fighting with both their management interface and customer services, I finally got it booted.

This year marks the 3rd year of my pattern for publishing a “My Stack” post, noting down how I get work done both professionally and personally (2018 / 2017). This year, I’m stealing borrowing inspiration from CGP Grey / Cortex and their “State of the Apps” episodes, and also talking

I’ve been an arch user for many years, and a linux user for even longer, but I’ve never installed arch from scratch. I was an Antergos user for many years, but after its demise, I needed an alternative. In a previous post, I spoke of attempting to install vanilla arch

I’ve been an Antergos user for almost three years, and I love it! It’s like Arch, but with a simple installation process, and yields a near-pure Arch install, unlike Arch derivatives like Manjaro. Unfortunately, on 21st May 2019, the Antergos project ended. Those behind the project were unable to commit

Last year, I wrote My stack 2017, and now it’s time for a follow-up. A year is a long time, and my day-to-day stack has changed quite a bit since then.OS I’m still an Antergos user, and have no sign of changing. I’ve had a few instabilities, but the AUR

As a software engineer and perfectionist, I have my machines set up in a very specific way, so I can do my job properly and have everything just the way I like it. Thanks to my dotfiles, I have everything syncing up between machines, meaning the tools I use are

Revert Arch linux packages to specific date

2017-09-11

I’m one of those Arch users who apparently doesn’t use arch properly: I install updates daily, including packages from the AUR. This has the great benefit of giving me the most up-to-date packages available from upstream. However, the downside of meaning I have the latest packages from upstream, meaning if
