Hello. I suppose the purpose of a user page is to inform others about myself, so I will do so by telling everyone about my configurations.

My configurations

mpd

My MPD configuration is global on one computer. Coupled with the following line from /etc/fstab.conf, here is my MPD configuration. Also, I use sonata as my frontend.

See picture of conky - note that this image doesn't include the Arch Linux ticker. The really long battery line makes the battery bar change color as the percentage changes.

Applications I Use

I am a college student and I want maximum usage from my computer. (as we all do!) Here are the programs I have found most useful during my studies.

  • gnote - good for jotting stuff down as well as being an attractive program.
  • rednotebookAUR - good program for taking quick or thorough notes in an organized fashion.
  • libreoffice - obviously.
  • networkmanager - works perfectly at ASU as well as the neighboring MCC
  • lyx - Most important tool I've downloaded so far, does everything perfectly for math and science classes. Note that the texlive-latexextra will enable you to use a lot more features.
