O’Learys Irish Bar, Torrox Costa:
Weekly Music
Summer is here and as promised, we’re taking things up a gear! New jam session, new bands and solo acts and rockabilly surf on Sunday, we have it all this weekend!
-SAT 1800HRS The 1st of our Saturday music line up is a man who has played in our bar many times but never as a solo artist so we’re really looking forward to seeing what NACHO can do on his own!

Daniel Torres Quartet at Ventana Abierta Jazz Club: First Statement
We say goodbye to the jazz season with the presentation of Statement One, the first album of the saxophonist from Malaga Daniel Torres. In this record, Daniel, whose musical training took him from Malaga to Barcelona, Amsterdam, New York and Toronto, has brought together a group of major international jazz figures (including the famous Indonesian pianist Sri Hanuraga “Aga”) to perform his original compositions. Some of the members of this newly created group have worked with great artists such as Sonny Rollins, Brad Mehldau and Lee Konitz.
“Statement One refers to a first declaration, to the fact that following a lengthy process of maturing musically and personally, this is the first time that I present my own compositions to the audience and leave evidence of this in an album.” Daniel Torres

URGENT UPDATE to Thursday’s Windows 7 Update/Patch info post “Microsoft Warns of a Monster Computer Bug”, dubbed ZombieLoad. The latest reports warn that if you apply the update patch now being offered by Windows Update you may experience a 40% decrease in processor capacity! Do you want your computer to operate 40% slower? ZombieLoad raises a new threat: To lock down and secure a system from this attack fully, you have to disable Intel’s hyper-threading. That’s why Google just disabled hyperthreading on Intel Chromebooks. Newer computers that shipped with Win 8 or higher are not at risk. Since we are close to the end of Service for Windows 7 in mid January I am not willing to lose almost half my processor capacity for a patch that will be irrelevant in 7 months. The patch is irreversible, even a full system reinstall will not undo it. It will thereafter always be a slow computer even if you install Linux on it! Ruined! Personally I quit doing Win 7 updates in January; the last year of every version of Windows has been full of annoyances. I suggest if you plan to keep using your Win 7  computer after January, either with Win 10 or Linux, immediately turn off Windows Updates and instead do a full system scan with your anti-virus weekly.  This will also prevent you from getting some (not all) End-of-Service warning popups as we approach January’s end of Win 7. Yes, there are rumors that MS will offer a patch to fix this patch’s slowdown effects, but it is far more desirable to have an unpatched processor than a double patched processor.
