2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. RebeccaBlackTech restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but we need to import posts from the a contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.

Is there a way to DESIGNATE a core/ thread to a specific process and only that process without it doing anything else?
For example let's say I have an 8 core CPU and want 1 core to be used exclusively for running VLC, and 3 cores exclusively for running background OS tasks and services.
