I must Concede!!!

by on Apr.20, 2016, under Ultimate Edition

I was updating netdata and got busted. I had source code on my screenie of what I was writing, far from done. My intentions are pure, I want to bring BluRay authorization to Linux. A slacking point in our world, as well as Games. This is too big of of a chore for one man the Games is what I infer, not BluRay mastering.

I find an issue in Linux, usually I jump right on it. I must Concede I am, but 1 man. Some things, I find that people have grave difficulty doing I find fairly simplistic. We will see, no it is NOT available for download YET!!!

Damn, now that I look at that screenie… There is a powerpc version of Ultimate Edition in the background, oops!!! You never truly know what I am doing. 😉

Breathe with me…

    First & certainly foremost. I did not write the application I am going to demonstrate. I wanted to get that right out there.  I did however, write software to package it & will expand as times goes on. The Developers of Netdata are programmers and don’t understand packaging as well as I do.  I have written software & use it daily to package applications I write or fix others, namely Repostorm.

    I did utilize Repostorm on the production based deb. Do not expect perfection yet, they are adjusting the software almost as fast as I can build a package.  It is on github’s “Trending” list and you will soon see why.  I called it Information Overload on Facebook, there is no such thing.  I would rather have too much information then not enough.

    Further information & download information can be obtained from our forum.  Built into each and every Ultimate Edition? Yet to be determined.  Regression testing is coming, you can learn more on our forum.  Calling on beta testers.

A step back, a leap forward

by on Mar.31, 2016, under Programming

I don’t want to come right out and say “Gnome sucks“, I know most have heard me say I do not care for KDE an opinion I solely embrace. Has never stopped me from building KDE based O/S’s right? Some of the activities the Gnome Developers do make me rethink the entire situation.

NEWSFLASH: Ladies & Gentlemen I build Operating Systems for fun & write core code for components for the aforesaid.  It upsets me greatly when developers do their best to destroy other developers. This is not a competition, why pull the rug out from under another developer? Let me say this again, I want to be frank. Makes me feel they do the things they do to "undermine me" & every other developer that "counted" on that package being there.  They have taken the painstaking time to ensure all apps involved with udisks to fail.

It will all be in vein.  I printed out my source code today on paper for one program the world has seen, quite popular. 33 pages of data, I am probably rapidly approaching 40 pages. Why? Them guys, I will introduce 3 technologies in one snap. My motive is one: Not to have to come back and re-write my software. If it is not broken, do not fix it. This is an open source community, do NOT stick your fellow man. I do have other things to do right?

Coming soon to a server near you,

Sorry for the inconvenience, the prior hosting company was way too expensive was well over a grand for less then a year. I had to do something no donations as of late. Either get a third job or look for a cheaper alternative. 😉

I have began writing a post on our forum, Android devices are coming to Ultimate Edition Goodness. It will be 10 times that size when I am done. #1 used O/S on this planet? I have your back…

Does things exist?

Postby TheeMahn » Sat Jan 02, 2016 12:18 am
I started dropping O/S’s with the quickness (actually TMOSB did). Did Ultimate Edition 4.5 exist yes, it was a internal testing product (you can build it yourself with TMOSB). When you see me skip O/S’s by version it is with good reason. I do have to say I probably should not have skipped Ultimate Edition 4.8. It was tight, however when the updates started rolling in completely stopped functioning. I try not to fly by night here in Ultimate Edition land.

The Ultimate Edition 5.0 that is available in alpha form I have installed and ran, however once again is not a final product & issues present themselves same as Ultimate Edition 4.8. I highly suggest you do not install it at the alpha stage. It was phenomenally faster then the Ultimate Edition 4.2.3 I currently run. We are here to advance the operating system are we not? I have things in works to protect your privacy as others give it away. I feel you should be able to browse the internet UN-encumbered & mean that across the board. Ultimate Edition does not monitor anything you do on the internet.

I am not here to give away trade “secrets”, however my intentions are to build an O/S I am happy with in hopes that you too will. I love new toys, soon to be a part of the Ultimate Edition Family. A developers edition? I have recently purchased a Andoer Rbox 3368 – 8 Core Android & yesterday a Quad Core PC, with 64GB SSD & 4K support with Windows 10. Rest assured will run Ultimate Edition. I can put in the palm of my hand. Amazing the miniaturization of today’s computers.

I have moved thousands of posts on the forum, archived them as we move forward. I noticed as I did so, a single post has been viewed 1/2 a million times. Crazy is it not? We have 10 fold the traffic here. Feel free to give me feedback, Happy New Years!!!

Merry Christmas!

Ho, Ho, Ho. Merry Christmas! I just dropped Ultimate Edition 5.0 to sourceforge:
Ultimate Edition 5.0

It is a Alpha & is NOT a stable Operating System. A glimpse into the future, when complete will be a LTS based on Xenial. Take it as a grain of salt at this point in time. I highly suggest at this point in time not installing it, though you will be tempted.

Response to one of our 50 admin / mods (I am all about education):

I have learned a ton in a second by the standards preached and thusly so does Mr. Breeg. I have an 8 core media box sitting in the bedroom hooked to a touch screen monitor (was hooked to the 3D monitor downstairs). Yes, it does have have miracast, dlna a remote control, AC dual band wireless & a true sense of nastiness right out of the box sporting Kodi. Does a fantastic job streaming movies from my main rig or a million streams off the INTERNET (high speed INTERNET is a requirement to cut the cable TV bill). I do have an advantage over many with a once again nasty router (Nighthawk X6 r8000 – can toss Linux on it as well) that can shove 3.2 Gigabits per sec through the air.

The unit boots in 8 secs, Plays the best of Droid based games w/o a hitch, plays 4k content, 64 Bit etc. That is where things begin to fall down hill. Shoving an O/S on a basic computer with what was intended to be ran on your phone. If I were to drop a 64 GB Sim on it (already ordered & treated as ram) and drop a Linux Based O/S on it, things begin to change. I will post how to do so as soon after the Sim arrives here. I will most likely have to buy another unit maybe 2 as the wife has became attached to it. We will be buying a 52″ for downstairs and dragging the 3D up to the bedroom. I am going to be looking into IR programming as well, I have 4 ceiling fans that are remote controlled and a programmable furnace as well. I hope to avoid the entire X11 system. I can at work see when someone knocks on my door.

I have a lot going on on the technological front, Arm based technology seen the Ultimate Edition side yesterday lol:

I honestly find it funny Ultimate Edition 4.9 getting beat on like a red headed stepchild, arm fairly ignored. I do have a Ultimate Edition 5.0 that will be LTS, amazes me how fast people climb on board. Surely Ultimate Edition 4.9 must be better then Ultimate Edition 4.2.3 a LTS??? I have not officially announced it, any of it. Toss stability out the door, I have had beta testers tell me 4.2 series is old news, no sir it is supported. Your 4.9 (a beta tester made it with tmosb) will be gone in 6 months, 4.2 series will be around until 2019.

Next time wait for an official release announcement.

Merry Xmas,

Merry XMAS!!!

It is tradition here in Ultimate Edition Land to release a special Ultimate Edition release for Christmas, this year will be no exception. Ultimate Edition started in 2006 by releasing an Christmas Edition to the general populous. You can learn more about that by reading an interview Sourceforge conducted on me in 2009.

What is the special release, a Christmas themed Ultimate Edition? No, ARM steps to the plate in this release, a return to the roots of Ultimate Edition in the form of LTS (Long Term Support), and a step into the future all in one snap. TheeMahn, please stop being cryptic 😉

Happy Turkey day.

Belated. I know it seems my advancement seems minuscule at best. I have a family and new home I have thought about selling 22 websites. I have advanced where I work, re-wrote , err wrote software they have been looking for for the past 11 years. Software, I am a talented individual. I have educated with 0 education. made a programmer. I have only educated one in my lifetime to that caliber, Tought many to build computers, programming a new brick in the wall.

I am going to kick back and relax. Cocky may go out the door.
