I only look at Arch if I need to build a new package or if I get a

Last time I looked (some months ago), they were not running the

Theyi now have only two failures

segfaults, and guarantees thread safety.

In my seventh decade astride this planet, and as my own cells degrade,
there are some things I cannot do now: skydiving, marathon running,
calculus. I couldn't do them in my 20s either, so no big loss.
