For what it's worth, Windows 7 does come with certutil which can generate assorted hashes in a similar way, but with the unusual quirk of space-splitting each hex digit pair.

I have redirected all download.mersenne.ca pages to HTTPS.

I guess I should keep quiet about using Windows Explorer

I use a command line replacement on boxes I have to work daily with... Take Command from JPSoft. Has a nice %@sha256[filename.exe] type syntax...that what I use to generate the hashes I put on the download page.

I deliberately let the downloads bypass the normal "redirect to https" routine that the rest of the site does, and that's just because it makes little sense to bother encrypting the downloads, especially when the hashes are available on a secure-only page, for the truly paranoid...er, I mean, cautious.

As for adding something to the home page about the new version... yeah, I did think about that because it does make some kind of sense, because a new version is kind of important to let people know about.

George had mentioned some other ideas for spicing up the home page as well. I kind of remember there being some sort of blob on the old home page that had info about the # of accounts, assignments, etc. Just as a for instance.

Typically though, home pages don't get a lot of traffic on many sites. Ever since people stopped bothering to go directly to a website, and rely instead of going to Google first, they usually wind up somewhere besides the home page. And often, that sub page is actually where they wanted to go anyway... i.e. they wanted the download page so they go straight there from search results.

Still, there are folks out there who put in www.mersenne.org into their address bar, like the old fogeys they are, and we may as well entertain them with something or another on the home page, for the couple of seconds they're there.

So this is what you were doing yesterday. I wondered what all the downtime was about.

Actually no, the downtime was totally unrelated, I accidentally blacklisted everyone, and only when I went to set up the HTTPS redirect did I notice that and fixed it

Hi. Is it normal to have the temperatures of two CPUs experiencing a difference of about 8C when undergoing the toruture tests (70C vs 60C)?

I'm assuming it is because of the difference in positions of the CPUs w.r.t the fans.

I'm running the test on an old server (ibm x3620 M3) for an experiment.

Just curious about this discrepancy.

Yes, that's quite common. It could be physical location of the CPUs (as you guessed), or a difference in thermal-paste application, where one has a more efficient connection to its heatsink. Differences in dust buildup can explain such a temp difference too!

I have to clean heat-sinks and a liquid-cooling radiator every other month. If I do not, then they start to plug up. My dust situation is horrid. Old building, old carpet, old drywall, cat hair, and the list goes on.

Get a robot vacuum cleaner. Helps a lot.

My sister has one that she uses on a hardwood floor. I would not think this would be ideal for carpet.
