stack page

A 4K block of memory used for device drivers in Windows 95/98. When new software or hardware was added, users sometimes got an error message that said "Increase the settings of MinSP's in SYSTEM.INI." MinSP meant "minimum stack pages," and you had to add a line in the SYSTEM.INI file in the Windows folder in order to increase memory. The number was supposed to be a multiple of 4, hence adding a MinSP=8 or MinSP=12 line should have sufficed.

Nonsense or What?
This is a perfect example of the utter nonsense that users had to endure over the years in this industry. Fortunately, it has gotten a whole lot better; however, every now and then, some super geeky message does appear.

We used a filler activity between the MINSP and the PS AP because it typically takes about 10-15 min for changes in testosterone to be measurable.
Our focus on men is not because testosterone is more important in men but because we have found minimal effects of the MINSP on testosterone in women, even though other behavioral paradigms do change testosterone in women.
