Just a short trip through my strange computer based quests.

I've made a thing.

August 22, 2019 — Sifr Nihilum

So, I spent about a day working on a script to first install arch from nothing via some very simple commands, and then a second script to run on first boot and install all of my programs and config files.

It's been a lot of fun. I obviously didn't do it myself, I'm not in any way smart. I borrowed the install script from and the ricing script from autorice. I've made a fair few changes, and added some less system agnostic stuff. You are welcome to try it, but it requires that you have two hard drives. One of your hard drives will be used for root, the other will be used for home and the one used for root MUST be an SSD. Home can be whatever you wish. Also, you need an nvidia gpu, because it installs the nvidia drivers.

I'm sure there are plenty of other specific things, but you know. I doubt anyone is going to just use it, but I was very proud of it! here it is.
