tl;dr - I had to SSH tunnel with a proxy computer in the middle due to some weird ISP restrictions/regular OpenVPN not working properly for me. Basically the setup is to SSH tunnel from one machine to another, and run another tunnel on the proxy computer. I used this surprisingly low latency setup to run a SOCKS5 proxy that did the job. “Remote Port Forwarding” is what I was doing, and a super awesome blog post helped show me the way.`

tldr; If you’re on arch, not all hope is lost when trying to deal with PDFs. pdfunite is out there for combining PDFs, Firefox is surprisingly helpful since is uses pdf.js, pdftk is there if you’re down with downloading the dependencies, convert is available for paring down scanned images, and ultimately, any software you can run on ubuntu can run on arch with a little docker.

This is a post I wrote a while back, that also got cross-posted on a github issue, detailing my struggles replacing catalyst/fglrx with AMDGPU on arch linux. Thought I should leave a copy of it here, just in case Github dissappears one day. Note this post is basically a copy-pasta of the Github issue response (which is a copy pasta of what I wrote down).

This post is one I’ve had written for a while but never published, as I’ve found some free time now, I’m going through and putting together posts that I jotted down but never got to publishing. This one was written when I ran into issues goign from an OpenVZ powered VPS to a KVM one, since I wanted to use docker to simplify my deployments a little bit (why I did so is a whole nother discussion, for another time).
