Analyzing the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia with Text Fabric in Python

Configuring pacsrv and powerpill on Arch Linux

On this post I will show how to configure and use Pacserve and Powerpill on Arch Linux. On a network of several Arch Linux boxes, it is possible to configure a Master server which will hold a copy of all the installed packages within that host and keep it up to date frequently. The other hosts on the network can be configured as Slaves and they will download the packages from the Master whenever possible instead of the Internet directly.
