Setting up the Alacritty terminal

I do this on remote machines I ssh to, so they understand the capabilities of this terminal, via the applied terminfo.

I should be using https://st.suckless.org/ but I really like the features of the Alacritty terminal!

curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/alacritty/alacritty/master/extra/alacritty.info
sudo tic -xe alacritty,alacritty-direct alacritty.info

If there is a better way, do let me know!
