I'm not trying to put down Arch, I really do appreciate its philosophy. I think it's just that I was coming at it from the wrong angle. Or something.

I've screwed up the simplest of processes countless times because attacking things from the wrong angle. Then, a month later, when I finally decide to fix my cock up, it works first time and I wonder what all the trouble was. hehehe
