TU corner: "even has informed us ...." <--who?

"The one downside to pacman is the lack of a rollback feature so you
might just have to start from scratch!" <--imho this is an
exaggeration or at least an unclarity for what "starting from
scratch" means. Worst case you have to boot in single user mode or even
boot a liveCD if you screwed up badly.  I would make it more clear to
avoid confusion.

Organize your tasks - Calcurse <-- link incorrect

Something that I notice in many newsletters are phrases like "another
great Arch Linux newsletter!".  I guess different people will intepret
it differently but to me it gives the impression the people behind the
newsletter (outsiders could extrapolate this to the Arch community as a
whole) are a bit arrogant/full of themselves.  I'm sure it's not meant
like that, I'm just saying that's how I interpret it.  When reading
homepages/newsletters/announcements/... of various projects/parties I
 don't like them describing themselves with positive adverbs.  I think
 people/projects should "come out" neutrally and let others judge their
If I'm the only one who thinks this, you can ignore me :P
