A year of learning - 2016

I believe in continuous learning. Not exactly as a life philosophy but so much as it makes me feel fulfilled. So as i took a walk down my memory lane but not so far long, just a year back, yes that right, just as i set this website up. As i said in my previous post, there has been quiet a lot of things going around and hence it took me a while to post this. So i ask myself a simple question, what new stuff have i learned the past year?. well the answer lies in the following,

Haskell: Optparse-applicative and Wreq library.

List of Tasks to do after Successfully Installing a Base Arch system.

This thing has been on my mind for a while. Arch is usually considered a difficult distro to install among most linux users probably only rivalled by Gentoo. There are those who praise the " Keep it Simple stupid " principle and there are others who think that Arch and Simple existing in the same sentence is an example of oxymoron. My own experience is somewhat on the former but there have been moments where i was inclined with the latter. By no means do i consider myself an arch expert but more along the lines of a bit above an intermediate archer.

Installing NIXOS - my experience so far.

Sometimes, I like to try new things. Some of them , have impressed me on first attempt, for example arch, qemu, lagrangians, etc while other have grown on me over the time, like Latex, Haskell, etc, and there are others which i vow never to use again (no, not gonna mention those abominations). Eventhough , I am curious to try new things, there is also a skeptical side which tries to reel in my curious-hyperactive self.
