comment Viewing very wide files
If you use vim on a file with 5200-character long lines, do ":set nowrap" and ":syntax off", otherwise you will get amazingly poor response times from vim.

comment Receiving Syslog messages with a systemd Arch Linux
Yes, agreed. How do I get systemd to run something that listens on UDP port 514, or to listen on port 514 for syslog-format messages? On my current elderly server, the syslogd process has UDP port 514 open. On my new Arch server, nothing listens on UDP port 514. How do I get something to do that listening?

comment What to do after cancelled “rm -rf /usr/” on Arch?
@Anna - please update your question if and when you try something, so that at least I know what to do for my Arch installations. I think you've hit a corner case - not many people have done what you've done, at least publically. Upvoted answers might be wrong answers in your situation.

"I don't want to depend on an outside service." What hekevintran wrote. Do it yourself, if you possibly can. Don't let corporations take over the internet, they way they have Real Life.
