You should take a look at w3watch

Are you using Arch ARM (I guess so, but better ask to be sure) or
something else?

perl[1] or PEARL[2]?

Any chance you'll switch those to Arch? :)

I'm not sure what software you're using at school, but here all we did
was learn how to type, use a webbrowser, write
text/spreadsheets/presentations, edit images, learn a bit of php, html
and c++. Tipp10, firefox, libreoffice, gimp and vim would have done just
fine and knowing that something like imagemagick + bash exists would
have been pretty awesome.
