My Arch Linux artwork and themes can all be found under /files/archlinux.
Dotfiles, configs, etc.
- My github repositories hold my most recent configs: dwm, dotfiles, wmfs, xmonad and more
- Older configs, such as those for tools I no longer use, can be found in the files section along with date snapshots of my past setups, etc.

Essential GNU/Linux applications
I've been using Linux long enough now that I've settled on a set of tools that works for me regardless of distribution; I can simply
git pull my configs and be ready for business. A typical setup includes the following software:
- dwm – simply one of the best tiling window managers ever made
- firefox – cross-platform web browser with nonpartisan plugin access
- screen – tmux is cleaner, but screen is found everywhere, including Cygwin
- rxvt-unicode – my preferred terminal, but I fall back to xterm and mintty when it's not available
- lynx – an excellent text-based web browser with hit-a-hint functionality similar to Vimium and Vimperator
- mutt – a classic, but powerful console email client that works well with Gmail IMAP access
- rtorrent – it manages all of my torrent needs smoothly in the background
- moc – super-simple music player with stream support (and permanently tuned to SomaFM)
- vim – my go-to text editor in the console and desktop
- vifm – a vi-like file manager for the console
To make re-installations easier, I keep condensed install notes for my linux installs:
