Note: if this causes problems for you, please report the issue in /bug and change the CPUAffinity value back to the value it was before you changed it.

yea, year and a half to finally change up the hot zones! Only now it kind of stinks because it became so familiar with the old ones lol. Grounds should be a bit of an interesting mess for a while now.

The tile of your post made me think it was filled with all kinds of bad things. I didn't see anything to get overly excited about however. What got you all riled up?
