Setting up the Alacritty terminal

Avoid the export TERM=xterm workaround

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 but I really like the features of the Alacritty terminal!

curl -O
sudo tic -xe alacritty,alacritty-direct

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