News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

How do you force the windows client to connect to a specific node and start downloading the blockchain from that node?

Psst.  I heard you need some trust nodes.  I got some in the trunk of my car.  Very premium stuff.  Only 1 BTC.  Honestly I am losing money on this deal. You won't believe the amount of trust this node has.

STOP! Trust Buster Police! Show your hands! Officer Wrench will now inspect your trunk! Remain calm, do not panic! Your neighborhood watch officer will be by to collect urine samples.
