Reality Sinks in.

by on Nov.22, 2022, under Ultimate Edition

Did you think I was lying?

One thing I do not do is lie. Yes, that is installed. Supports UEFI, syslinux (non UEFI) secure boot, line it up. It is online. Smokes the breaks of Ultimate Edition Linux, yes it is Arch based. Does it have Ultimate Edition Linux software built in? The answer is yes again. Repostorm took care of that & yes it is built in. Does it have a GUI based installer? Once again yes.

What is a Rolling release? There is no Ultimate Edition 7.7 release, it just keeps rolling. Software automatically updates. I went though hell to ensure that is exactly what happens.

It is coming to the world. I want you to think about this I can drop a command:
repostorm –convert pithos # and convert an app from Ubuntu to Ultimate Arch

I probably have the largest repo on the Internet, probably because I have already done that for you. There is a learning curve. It you can take that a large transformation. try this sudo pacman -Syuu ultimate-edition-themes

Please

Oh, that is right you do not have it yet.

I wonder who converted all those packages? Not me, Repostorm did. Do you see the size?

Maybe I do not know what I am talking about?

Rolling… Things change

by on Nov.14, 2022, under Ultimate Edition

I have your back


That is a rolling release, no version Ultimate Edition 7.7. One thing I can see it is lightning fast. As soon as I build the core files it is coming. Repostorm is right behind it to fill in the gaps. I have err Reposorm has cross-platform built software. It is a scary app. I told you that years ago. It runs on both platforms.


What does this mean Glenn? I am building a “rolling” release. I bet I have been asked a thousand times to do so.

Repostorm converted all those packages above. Not to be taken lightly, it also built the repository in a foreign O/S. Not like it is small data: Total Installed Size: 1807.79 MiB. Repostorm has handled Terabytes of data.

Not in vain

by on Sep.24, 2022, under Ultimate Edition

I do not care 1,000 cores.

I guess I did, I was downloading over 4 million files at the same time, 10 at a time. I will shut down the SledgeHammer, the Jackhammer is offline. JackTheRipper is w/o a doubt the fastest computer I have ever seen. Quite an endorsement coming from me. Yes, it is that fast. 1 computer will totally replace 3 servers and a desktop. 120 TeraBytes of space (almost an 1/8th of a PetaByte in just one computer). I can always turn on the Sledgehammer or Legion to retrieve data. I did sell Legion 2.

Welcome aboard JackTheRipper. As it sits:

Data flows. I can promise you shit is getting done so fast it scares the competition, I am sorry what competition? Is that Ultimate Edition 7.7? Did I miss something? Just so you know I upgraded to 7.7 with just a command dropped in the terminal. A rolling release? That was a bunch of money. I am going to use it to its full potential. I hope you know Repostorm now builds Arch Linux packages as well as Arch Linux Repositories. You better watch your ass Steam Deck. Currently, I am working on getting a drive replaced. I will tell you how that goes. I have bought 11 X 14TB drives from them and not one return. I think they sent me a bad apple. I am still waiting for their response.

If they do not make it right, I will contact Amazon to get a refund & never buy from them again. Do you know how much money that is? The first 4 I bought were $350.00 a piece. I broke one, my bad. Now have bought 2 more actually 3. All I can say is they better make it right. If they find out who I am, I can promise you they will make it right. Could be a huge loss or gain in their business. How much traffic do you think this site sees on a daily basis? I will try to open your eyes: 204,943 registered users, just this site. How many sites do I own?

Did you know after I bought Legion, the same guy sent me a free server faster than the one I bought? Sales… The traffic I do have. I am positive he has more than made his money back. Once he seen the sales, I am sure he thought & contacted me, can I send you a free server? Well, that is a no-brainer. Just so you know the entire ThreadRipper Pro system I paid for out of pocket. There is nothing adjusting my thoughts.

What would happen if I introduce “Free Games” exclusively to the Steam Deck? You can see I have the ability. How large is that repository? Thank you Repostorm & autonomously built. Did you think I was fucking with you?

What part of the developer did you not understand Steam? I will take a large chunk of your users. I did not fuck up, you did, and now you will pay. Are all free games not attractive? You will beg me to stop. You probably fucked with the wrong guy.

Surely free games to the steam deck will not exist:
FREE STEAM DECK Games, I bet I own that website. I am just warming up. I just bought the domain, I mean business. let me tell you how this is going to work, I am not just a CEO, I am a webmaster. Let’s take the time and search on google for “Ultimate Edition” #1 result you are coming to see me. Does Microsoft not make a Ultimate Edition? If I can overtake Microsoft and have for years, what do you think will happen when I unleash on the Steam Deck? Pay close attention, the word is free. I just dropped steam. People will search for free steam games. I have got you. I am a scary fella in what I do.

Jack the Ripper is almost done.

by on Sep.20, 2022, under Ultimate Edition

9 of 11 Raided NVME’s

Impressive? Sure, but does not hold a candle to the speed of the ECC (Error Correction & Control) RAM (Random Access Memory). I told you I was building a monster. It will smoke anything sold at Leveno at $15,000.00. Did I mention my CPU is overclockable? I have no desire to do so, I watched ue-theme builder build more themes in less than 1 and a half minutes. More than 5 times faster than an AMD Ryzen 9 3950X. No not in RAM and no not on raided NVMES. It is probably beyond 10-fold at that point.

Money well spent.

8 Channel ECC Memory (256GB)

The fastest computer I have ever had the privilege to sit behind. I am still not done. I broke the SATA Power connector off one of the 4 X 14TB enterprise hard drives & lost 56TB of data, do not worry the server has a backup of all info. I will just order a new 14TB drive and pull all the data off the network.

Do you think the raided NVME’s are fast? When RamBooter says 29.4 GB a sec, it means 29.4GB a sec read and write speed. Faster than 9 NVMES raided. Rambooter is about to come off the chain. The Steam Deck is Quad Channel RAM, do you see where I am going? If you play with fire, you will get burnt. I did try and help Steam, now you will deal with me. I am not a developer, right? I have got you. Steam what were you thinking? Because I don’t make games? What I am developing is no game. I ordered 2 of them, if I have a failure, will rebuild the raid array from here forward $356.00 I do not care about money. Took me a year to build it, be here Thursday. A turning spare. I now have 10 X 14 TB Enterprise drives.

I actually have greater than a 1/4 of a Petabyte of space all drives added up. That is A LOT!!! NO, I am not a data center. I do make sure I do not lose data and make it very fast. I did lose 56 TB and was nothing to me.

The Unthinkable has happened.

by on Sep.16, 2022, under Ultimate Edition

The JackHammer just got shut down for the last time. A newly daily driver is coming. The case was so big I had to buy Extension cables. All that Red and white you see is power. It is far from done. I will drop 11 NVME’s in it, and 7 Enterprise Drives, fans and RGB lighting in it and call it a day. The Shiteo card will come out, thanks NShitia & be replaced. Dual 10 Gigibit Fiber will be dropped in and disable the dual 10 Gigabit onboard. Will all be done by Saturday. You are NOT looking at a finished product.

The ripper is up!

by on Sep.10, 2022, under Ultimate Edition

Welcome Aboard. TheeMahn’s new Rig.

I am happy as a lark to see it POST (Power On Self Test) for the first time. I will have to build it up, drives etc. I don’t even have a keyboard hooked up yet lol. Yes, I do see it complaining about insufficient power. It has a 1300 Watt power supply. I will have to move one of the 12 volt EPS rails to a higher slot. That board will take up to 3 of them and 2 X 12 volt six pin connectors. Just the CPU alone will suck up 280 Watts. Currently, I have not seen it in action, rest assured it is coming.

Just wanted to share the good news. That build scared me. Just because of the amount of money involved. I am so happy to see it post. I hope to never build one again. I just ate it and ordered another 12 Volt EPS cable. I will not run it w/o it. I do not know if they shorted me a cable or if I lost it. Took me a year to build it. A lot can happen in a year.

Don’t know what a ThreadRipper Pro is?

You can do Magic!

by on Sep.07, 2022, under Ultimate Edition

I have been writing a re-write of RepoStorm. I can promise you I did not convert one Application at a time to Arch Linux. I wish I had the ThreadRipper pro up would take seconds. I suppose I should tell you why I don’t have the Ripper up. The Power supply only has 2 X 8 pin 12 Volt EPS rails & the mother board has 3 slots for it… 2 six pin on top of that & 2 to the video card… That was a $400 PSU (Power Supply Unit). 1,300 Watts Titanium & not enough? It made me pull my balls out. I have never built a Threadripper in the past. I have built thousands of computers.

I did get it to power up, but not POST (Power On Self Test). Can you imagine burning up $15,000.00 worth of hardware? Like crashing a car at the push of the button. I am being meticulous. I do have what I need, just not plugged in right. 1,500 watts is recommended. I have just the basics in it, it should have came up. I found out one of those 8 pin EPS ports is “Primary” without it will not come up. Once I see it come up I will drop 11 NVMES in it and 10 Hard disks. I may have to buy a larger PSU. Just purchasing the chip & the E-bike took me from Excellent credit to Good credit (lost 43 points in one day). It was expensive. I will bounce back.

Almost $7000.00 in the hole. 0% APR, it will go away. 4 days from now I will get a raise & still not top pay. This I think is funny, if I hand you $1,200.00 a month, they do not complain. The first card is O.K with $300.00 a month as they are watching me crush the first card, no payment due. They can see my finances. What do you think will happen when the first card is gone? They are hoping. I can not take care of both. 0% APR? Like a loan with 0% interest. I do pay my bills too. I love my job. They pay me well & do not screw with me. I have the perfect job. I too make no mistakes. Last review they told me I had not made a mistake in over a year in quality. I am personally about in quantity. I shove tons out the door. Helps the company & Ultimately me. Damn, my next bonus check will have perfect attendance on it.

That in itself is also funny, it is hard to get a person to go to work. I have worked with only 5 people for an entire shift. That is crazy. I hate to tell you this I think we just lost one more today, perhaps 2. I have told them if you miss 2 days in a quarter you do not get a bonus at all, and the next day they do not show up. I am having financial problems, I wonder why? They are going to shut off my water. DUH!

I guess I am a company man. I came into 1″ steel which weighs jack diddly squat. Packet gone, let us grab the next packet. Have some 3/4″ which is worse, you will have to burn one at a time. I did not make it through that crap until 9 PM. Next up 1 3/4″ Gone in 20 minutes. 3,800+ pounds in 20 minutes. They want .63 tons per hour. I custom-program that. If I can.

Running Arch Linux?

sudo nano /etc/pacman.conf

Goto the bottom and add the following:

[ultimate]
SigLevel = Optional TrustAll
Server = https://os-builder.com/Arch/$repo

Why am I doing this?  Steam pissed in my Wheeties.  When I am done the Steam Deck will run Ram-booter.  I do not think Steam really knew who I was.  I told them I was a developer, well he does not develop Games.  You are right.  I can promise Steam will wish they never screwed with me.

It is happening autonomously as I type.  Right now it will only use one thread, I will fix that.  Parallel processing Baby - I am the King of opening cores.  The Steam Deck is a quad-core, eight-thread Zen 2-based APU, that still sports RDNA 2 GPU cores, and also supports LPDDR5.

Main rig until the Ripper comes up.
Repostorm even converts itself 😉

That is Single channel DDR4 Memory & is about six times as fast as a NVME. The Steam Deck is quad channel memory & LPDDR5. Do you see where I am going? When I am done it will be faster then my current rig. I am sorry they blew me off. I want you to think about this, I am running that application in Arch Linux. I have been writing software for almost 40 years. I do know what I am doing. I did start writing software when I was 11 years old on a Commodore VIC-20.

Sorry Steam,

The Hammer is about to drop

by on Aug.26, 2022, under Ultimate Edition

Steam Deck is in house
Software does not stop

Sorry Steam! Why did you not treat me as a developer?

WTF were you thinking? I build Operating Systems & have for over 20 years. Your Steam deck uses Arch Linux. Took me one day to port my software to yours. You are fucked.

That is all I will say right now. Last check I am TheeMahn. What will happen tomorrow? I have a ThreadRipper Pro coming up tomorrow. I can promise you that you are hit in the mouth. I did offer to sell you my software. Now I will incorporate in an O/S I build & wipe you out. Mine will be free, and pretty hard to fuck with. Do you think I care about money? You are now screwed.

It is already in the works & just a matter of time. I do like Arch Linux, minus the learning curve. The same O/S Steam Deck uses. I could completely replace the O/S, why not do both? According to the info tool in Ram Booter will only be 5 times faster. I can’t wait to see ram-booter run on the ripper. It has 13 NVME’s won’t matter. I do not care if I had 50 NVME’s all raided, where does that data traverse? Through RAM. I just cut it out. The closer you get to the CPU the faster things get.

Let’s re-illiterate this Steam you are not only fucked, but you are screwed. I am a good guy I will let you know you should add Lutris (released today) to your repo minimally or incorporate it.

What a nice guy, I won’t for the most part tell you what I am doing.

What is this Johnny?

by on Aug.12, 2022, under Ultimate Edition


I did have to order it 3 times, but a ThreadRipper Pro 5975WX is coming. That is the latest Gen ThreadRipper Pro Zen 3 Architecture. 32 core 64 Thread Monster. That is just the chip, I already have had the rest for over a year in total. Did you know it smokes even the fastest CPU money can buy in Gaming minus the AMD 5900X3D. AMD Ryzen 7000 series is coming in September. In Intel Land, there is absolutely ZERO that can touch it and I mean even in the server area. The chip is classified as an HEDT (High-End Desktop) or Sworkstation, they are NASTY. I do write software to boot from RAM. On the ThreadRipper Pro will be 8 channels. The Steam Deck is a quad Channel. I did offer to help them. We will talk about Steam deck at the end.

I did not buy it to play games I can assure you of that. Expensive sure, fast? Phenomenally. I do write software for multi-core or Parallel processing software. Get ‘r done.

It gets better. They were nice enough to deny my new credit card.

ThreadRipper Pro 5975WX inbound? 32 core 64 thread. Only $4,190.00?

Like I said it does get better:

Still gets better…

I went to Amazon to check on whether it had been shipped it has not thanked God. Had customer support call me. Found it on Amazon’s website $500.00 less. They canceled it without me canceling and restarting the process. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Those drives are filling BTW. 1/2 a GB a second across the network. Dual 10 Gigabit Fiber. They will drop in the ThreadRipper Pro. Most people do not understand just how fast they are. In Linux I do not deal with schedulers. Windows is poor in its support of a chip of that caliber. It is almost like an Epyc, faster in most cases.

The first Intel chip I see is almost $9000.00 and it is way below what is coming. If you look at the money, I probably made the best decision, however if money was no object should have waited until September 15th. I am sure they will drop the 5995WX, you can get them on EBay for $9,999.00 used. I hate price gougers.

They evidently are not going to release the top dog chip the ThreadRipper Pro 5995WX until September 15th. MSRP on that chip? $6500.00. I have waited a year to the day. I will take what I can get. I already have had the rest. Funny, I was reading that link & Steam sent me a link to buy my steam deck. Ironically Steam deck shut down my ability to buy a steam deck today. I did file a support ticket. We will see how that goes. They only gave me 72 hours to buy it. I do work. $3500.00 does not sound so bad now does it, yes you have to pay the tax man. Both are coming.

The steam deck is on its way.

What do you think I will do with that? Play Games? I bet you are wrong.

The game is about to change,

Ready, Set Go?

by on Jun.16, 2022, under Ultimate Edition

Software is on my side.

I have been writing software for 40 years. Pro bono I do not want your money. Great guy, not a money-hungry fella. I would have a ton of money if I wanted it.

Are you Ready for what is coming? Things are about to change. I scare the hell out of the big boys get SET.

Like my crypicness? Yes, it is a word. Makes it worse that they do not what is coming. Basically, what I am telling you I am about to drop a large hammer. That too is Crypic. What app do I infer or O/S?

Gamechanger.
