Finally I am ready to join the network

CPU Ryzen 7 3700X
GPU MSI Nvidia 2070 SuperVentus
SSD 1TB SD Black SN750 NVMe

I understand we only can join the network every month on 1st, 8th and 22nd, but It would be great if I can be sure my configuration is working well, there is any way to test the configuration before to join the real network this October 22nd?

Node BetaNet ready!
