    Really low level electronics, like designing stuff like audio gear with discrete transistors, etc. Linux (of course). Some minor C and C++ experience, like modding BFGMiner to work with my custom Bitfury based ASIC miner back then or tweaking bitcoind based altcoins' net.cpp to get network latencies down for insta-mining and orphaning their blocks, hate on me ;-). Got Java forced down the throat in university and hated it. Did some Common Lisp web development and very much liked it. Also planning to do another Lisp based web project.
  1. Thanks! MOAR to come soon once I'm done tinkering with my new dual EPYC 7551 rig. Quick testing shows it can run all cores @ 3GHz under 1V, but the noise and heat... I need a water loop for that, radiators blowing hot air straight out of the window. I don't want to have my AC running against ~600W of heat, ruins my XMR mining efficiency. Now I've put that thing two doors away. Video via DisplayPort over fiber (helluva expensive). Keyboard/mouse over LAN through abusing Synergy on my Notebook (Server) and EPYC rig (client). Next step is using multiple RAID0ed containers each in it's o
  2. First release online: https://github.com/TheDevilsMom/rootfsramdisk/releases/tag/v0.0.1 Now I'm focusing on getting metatools, etc. running and create an ebuild.
  3. I've made a rudimentary script to start/stop everything (called rfsrd, root filesystem RAM disk), seems to work without issues: #!/bin/bash # configuration begins # tmpfs size in MiB size=24576 # MD device md=/dev/md127 # SSD/HDD device ssdhdd=/dev/nvme0n1p2 # loop device loopdevice=/dev/loop0 # configuration ends i=0 while [ $i -lt 1 ]; do case $1 in --help) echo Usage: rfsrd --start echo " Rebuilds RAMdisk and halts SSD/HDD." echo " rfsrd --stop" echo " Rebuilds SSD/HDD and halts RAMdisk." let i=i+1 ;; --start) echo Rebuilding RAMdisk. mount -t tmp
  4. / in RAM ---preliminary guide--- Caution! Entering this is probably Gentoo-is-for-ricers territory! 😉 Battery backed system (notebook, UPS) strongly recommended! This has been executed on a Thinkpad T480s, 40 GB RAM, NVMe SSD, BIOS boot. Section 1: Initial setup. Boot Funtoo Undead USB or any other suitable Linux distro. Create tmpfs mount point. mkdir /mnt/tmpfs Mount tmpfs. Adjust size to your needs. 12 GiB is probably the absolute minimum for a usable desktop configuration. My freshly installed system with workstation flavor, xfce mix-in and Libreoffice + Gimp ea
