I'm currently interested in the following topics


I run a laptop, a desktop and a VPS server on Arch linux. I use the laptop for day-to-day use, the desktop is currently serving files under ownCloud and the VPS server runs under Xen and is meant to be a full blown web and mailserver.


My laptop is an Acer TravelMate 7740g with Intel i3 processor and ATI Radeon Mobile HD5650 1Gb graphics video processor running Arch Gnome3


The laptop runs [Systemd] hence my interest in the Wiki article


Coming from an Ubuntu environment I never concidered LILO or Grub Legacy but installed Grub2 right away.I had some issues with the Seagate Momentus 750Gb hybrid drive I installed lateron. These issues stem from the new 4KB sector size.


I installed Arch woth the script from [AUR]. I on think I will do that ever again. The desktop needs a clean up ;) I installed [ownCloud] from AUR that serves my photo's and other stuff frm a partition that is currently 100Mb in size.

VPS server

My hosting provider offers Xen Virtualisation with a bare Arch x86-64 which I decided to maintain without cPanel or the likes. That means configuring everything by hand. I have a complete LAMP stack and a mail server mainly set up with help from the SOHO Postfix page. The mail server runs Postfix, Dovecot, Mailgraph, Pigeonhole and more.
