It's beginning:

Windows patch KB 3139929: When a security update is not a security update.

Microsoft buried a 'Get Windows 10' ad generator inside this month's Internet Explorer security patch for Windows 7 and 8.1


If Microsoft's documentation is correct, installing Patch Tuesday's KB 3139929 security update for Internet Explorer also installs a new Windows 10 ad-generating routine called KB 3146449.

Many people -- present company included -- feel that putting an ad generator inside a security patch crosses way over the line. In fact, you have to ask yourself if there are any lines any more.


Looks like they are going to force everyone into not checking for updates.

We have moved on from both V6 of Astropulse and V7 of Multibeam.

I did try to search forums and questions but didn't found answer.

So I need current Linux Astropulse Nvidia GPU app_info.xml and necessary files to process AP.

For this host

Is that correct that current stock app is "optimized" app?

That is the most recent release for AP work.

I just spent the last 4 days in Mid 80's temps, no A/C either.

Phoenix is warm this time of the year.
47) Questions and Answers : Windows : Newby question (Message 1766801)
Posted 22 Feb 2016 by Profile arkaynProject Donor
Hi all, I have a question pertaining to Internet speed. We use dial-up on our local phone system (yes, I know, but it's all we have!) and I'm considering the SETI@home program. Our Internet speed is usually pretty good for dial-up, but occasionally in the evening at peak traffic times, we experience buffering when watching HD videos. I'm using a Gateway laptop running Windows 8, and keep the laptop elevated on a wire shelf to help keep it from overheating. Will running the BOINC affect our ability to watch videos, or vice-versa? I love the idea of contributing to the science, but am concerned that it will eat up bandwidth that we can't spare. Thanks!


Multibeam WU's are about 364 kb, Astropulse WU's are 8 Mb.

Cosmic,

I don't mean to be rude, but what do your computer issues have to do with Server Problems?

There are computer builds threads ...


I have no problem with these posts, and seeing as it is my thread...

No zinc here, never felt the need, though I've had the occasional cold, I'd usually shake the cold in a day or so.


That must be nice. I think for most of us they last about a week (without the
zinc lozenges).


My last cold went on for a month.

Next one is out, kb3135445.

Another one to make certain that never installs on your machine.

Also kb2952664 is back once again for the xnth time.

Both are optional.

Noted. I'll add 3135445 to the list, once I figure out what the win8 equivalent is. That particular update comes in pairs, every time.


That would be this one. kb3135449

Here in Johannesburg, our summer rainfall pattern has returned to something approaching normal, after a very hot and dry November, December and early part of January. We recorded a temperature of 38.9 °C earlier this month.

Right now, it's a mild, partly sunny 24 °C, with a 40 % chance of thunderstorms predicted for later today.

However, I will be travelling to Outokumpu in eastern Finland over the weekend for a three-week long business trip, and that will be the end of summer for me for a while!


Only 38.9°C, I see 48.9°C and higher at my work location during the summer.

Of course inside where I work it is kept about 12.8°C.
