Backup in progress…

by on Jan.03, 2015, under Cloud Storage, Hosting, Linux, Ubuntu, Ultimate Edition

I have personally taken a 9TB loss in data, I have a 6TB drive in route to replace and will order another one next paycheck maybe a SSD to raid for boot / building. Raid is fantastic where speed is taken into consideration, however the downfalls of the speed of raid 0 can be crippling. I have began backing up our web servers, locally initially then to our cloud. Redundancy at it’s finest. One website 50GB compressed and told it to exclude all ISO’s (Operating Systems). 10 websites to go thereafter.

Backup in progress.

Backup in progress. 4K monitor. So will probably be huge.

I am going to sell my 2 28″ higher than HD monitors and buy another 4k monitor, I am sold on 4K. I had no clue until I fired it up, read it was the bomb and found out I will never go back to HD. I have written software for 4K the first day. I love being a programmer, when I see something I don’t like I just “fix it”. I got a new job / position where I work as a Software Engineer. A office, a company laptop and a raise. I do program at home to make my job at work easier. They already have brought up copywriting software I have in works. A nasty tool that would help virtually any company. I’m sitting on it now, royalties or I will Copywrite it after all I did write it on my time off right? Or hire me as a programmer ;)

I took a few minutes of my time and wrote a raid calculator. Wrote it initially with Ironman in mind. He unloaded 6 Western Digital Raptors on me to benchmark against SSD technology. Well I’m not going to half ass it, write a tool. Formatting the drive based on the number of spindles only 4 here we will wake up at least 5 when I am done ;)


forwardraid calculatorraid calculator

The 9 Terabyte raid array I lost 3 X 3TB was 400+ Megabytes per second in speed, what would 4 yield? Smash a SSD at 12 Terabytes? Try and buy a 12 TB SSD, you best work at NASA or better. The loss has not deterred me. I hate to wait for anything in my world.

The backup that is in progress, expect disruptions in service. Next month I have probably $400 in hosting bill due, so anything you can contribute is welcome. I may make better money, but please do not expect me to eat it all. If I don’t have the funds I will shut it all down. I don’t mean to be threatning, but raw facts.

Happy Holidays!!!

Ultimate Edition 4.3 (LTS) is in route

Ultimate Edition 4.3 (LTS) is in route

I hope people have enjoyed time with their families and look forward to spending additional time with them in the upcoming holidays. I wanted to thusly inform you we have a new O/S in route, quite bulletproof if I do say so myself. A few things I did have to manually intervene therefore tmosb is still not 100%. I have released the O/S to Admin, Mods and beta testers & so far 100% positive feedback. I am going to give it a day or 2 to trickle into the palms of all admin. No negitive feedback and a worldwide release will be in session, please stay tuned. Both 64 bit and 32 bit are done, uploaded and are in testing:

Why do I care? I would ask the same. Let me create a new category “Debian” for the entire situation. Be sure to read what the fella above me asked, I should have Quoted him.

Not on my watch!!!

I can’t imagine why a platform that is open source, meaning I can see your source code and 100% understand what you are doing. They are thinking the users are not programmers, well not all users are users. I highly suggest a read of the entire article, not just where I am in writing the current document MALWARE in my Linux, we are not running Micro$oft here. I have got your back.

Let’s nip this in the bud now.

Sorry, for dual monitors. I actually have tripple monitors & dual video cards in crossfire:

I know some people like to dabble into the cutting edge. I present to you a beta of Ultimate Edition 4.4 x86 Gamers built with tmosb. I would like to take a moment to also say thanks to all the beta testers of tmosb the following file is now autogenerated using tmosb:

I will not rob you of the build logs (they are also on the dvd, put there by tmosb): tmosb-1.9.1-build-logs.tar I can’t integrate the md5sum on the disk, or the above auto-generated information, because that information would change the md5sum of the disk. I will now provide that information:

I wish I could upload at 10 MB/s ;) The future of tmosb? I have incorporated a few new switches, none are available as a public release currently. I intended to keep this as an undocumented feature, and will allow me to advance the tool even while I am at work at my other job, so much for undocumented:


--YES


It stops all prompting it will not ask you if you are sure, I will write a function to start at the top and build all 156 operating systems while I am at work at my other job, I can’t have it asking questions. Come home and find my 9TB Raid array full lol. I’m going to have to buy a few more hard drives, I can see it coming. I have also written a function for loading out ISO’s to your current grub, no more wasting a DVD to test, or loading it out to a thumbdrive. I will test the ISO at SSD speed. Qemu is great for a virtual machine, however there is nothing better then a real machine.

I have spoke of the changes that are in works etc. On our forum, I suggest a read in it’s entirity. I did have to do a few things by hand in the release of Ultimate Edition 4.4 x86 Gamers

Do not think that tmosb data is not passed:

I told you I do not want to build Operating Systems. I want to program. I will have software doing so for me and I ment it. This is the tip of the iceburg, none the less enjoy Ultimate Edition 4.5. I want you to understand I am going to put Ultimate Edition on your phone, tablet and PowerPC as well. It is just a matter of time. The LTS I built I will go through like a fine tooth comb. Take Ultimate Edition 4.5 as a grain of salt at this point.

I am not going to provide info other then have Ultimate Edition 4.5:

You will probably have to wait for the servers to populate, slow at best. Sorry, this is no large release as far as I got to have it. I will not take the time to work it into such. Big things are coming, please kick back and enjoy. Our traffic, by an educated estimate will manifold 4 fold. Let the ride begin.

I know you can see version 1.8.9 in both scenarios, however I version lock tmosb until a public release. Makes it hard on beta testers, my condolences.

TheeMahn,
