You don't know what a bad day is
Yup. Yesterday. Also down to loading a Win7 machine so that I can contribute some Gerasim and AMD GPU for challenges.

Took me about 90mins to suss out that Notepad had called my file remote_hosts.cfg.txt ... I mean WTF !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This was after finding the correct (hidden) directory in the first place

Don't anyone ever tell me that Linux is difficult

If you did a WIn7 install on your Xeons there are some updates you DON'T want installed ... if they were you can remove them. These are the Spectre patches and can slow up HT crunching by 30%.

The following KB #
4056892
4056897
4880960
4880970
any of security rollups dated 1/18 or later

You turn off automatic updates and tell it to check but let you determine whether to download them. Once you get to the point it wants to start doing to rollups or the above listed updates then TURN OFF UPDATES entirely.

PS I don't think Gerasim has enough server to handle a Sprint.

Thanks. Does 1/18 mean January 2018 or 18-Jan-2019 ?

(must teach these Americans to write dates properly)
