[arch-general] talking arch disk and instructions were both outdated here

I'll have to download a newer copy of the talking arch disk among other 
things that takes account of pacstrap and uses the arch scripts rather 
than the framework to install archlinux.  The braille instructions I made 
are also outdated so I'll fix that after some reading.  Earlier this 
morning I got through the partitioning and formatting of a hard drive and 
since the material I have on archlinux on this end is that outdated, I 
decided to install debian on the large hard drive only archlinux could 
install on earlier.  Debian would always thrash the disk before.  This 
time no disk thrashing.  Apparently use of archlinux to give debian some 
clues worked.  I'll put archlinux on some of my smaller drives in the 
future when I figure out how to do that now that the talking archlinux I 
have no longer finds grub to install it.

Hardware eventually fails; software eventually works, no amount of band
width can fix poor design
