My witness node is working again, and I have no idea how

avatar

I have lost 2 blocks in the past 2 days and I have no idea why.

I even posted asking for help just in case someone knew how to help. Thank you to everyone who cared, but it fixed itself.

Block 57801462 produced by me

I can only assume it was some kind of shortage of bandwidth from the VPS server provider.

When I looked at it yesterday it was hundreds of blocks behind. I did not nothing, I did not know what to do and just waited. Today after missing 5 blocks I got a little despaired, but without doing anything it is working again and literally just now produced a new block.

Today has been a bad day, my main laptop does not work, I have no backup, everything is encrypted, I most likely lost all that was in it (including keys to crypto wallets!).

At least I find some comfort knowing my witness node is still working fine after it scared me a little bit...

Some support on these trying times is appreciated. I am saving as much money as I can and I might need to power down because I need a new laptop. I am using a 10+ years old laptop just because I need it, but it is terrible using this to work and get things done...

Wish me luck. And remember: ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR STUFF!! DO NOT BE PARANOID LIKE ME!!!

Stuff like this happened to me several times and I have no idea why. I started missing one block after another and then as by some form of enchantment it started working back again.

I hope you keep going as a witness. For me, a vote for you is a vote for the common man. Best wishes and power-down if you need the funds! I hate the stigma attached here to actually using the Hive you earn for something REAL!

I wanted to save as much Hive Power as I could so that I could make a difference.

Especially after Phil and his racist gang attacked me for learning Chinese I knew I had to have more Hive Power to try and do my part to make Hive a less toxic place.

The witness issue is solved. This weekend I am gonna solve the issue about my main laptop breaking down.

I still have a job, it is hard to do without my main computer, but I may not need to power down, and I hope I do not need to so that I can make a difference long term.

Thanks for the kind words, it is good not only for me but for Hive too!

You have made a death threat to me, remember? It will not be forgotten. You will be denounced publicly whenever you mistep. You may as well change accounts.

I work and study and am busy. But I will always keep an eye on your account. Death threats won't be taken lightly.

You should be careful who you harass online. Talking about me and a communist state that would give me the death sentence for my way of life will not be forgiven.

You fail to realize the culture you are promoting will destroy all that I value and the world that I grew up in. Not sure where you are from, but China is a serious threat to Canadian sovereignty.

Whatever you hate, either the government of the chinese people.

Want to change it? Want to make a real difference? For real?

Learn the damn language and tell them what you think.

There are groups against the North Korean government and you know what do they do to fight it? Send hot air balloons with propaganda against the government… in Korean…

You will never achieve anything pro nor against China without studying first. You will probably do more harm than good to whatever cause you defend if you act without studying and thinking.

The way you expose your ideas just makes you look like a racist lunatic.

You don’t change stuff by enclosing yourself on an ignorance bubble like a kid that screams and makes random demands.

Use your brain for once

I agree with everything you just said, but this is not about race, this hatred I have is most certainty and entirely about Geopolitics and I am quite well versed on Chinese labor ethics, slave labor, and international trade especially trade with Kazakhstan, Afghanistan, and the Ukraine.

I do not care what language anyone speaks in china, it is not for me to speak for them, there is many forms of non-verbal communication of which I use when I am looking at a geopolitician situation. Its easy to reverse translate to overcome any sort of grammatical issues that come from Chinese to English too, only people who use google seem to have this issue translating traditional Chinese and simple Chinese.

When you say,

There are groups against the North Korean government and you know what do they do to fight it? Send hot air balloons with propaganda against the government… in Korean…

This statement above, is commonly referred to as COINTEL by educated people who understand information warfare, sometimes called psychological warfare. It is 1 method to intervene in a communication relay outside of your control, not the only method to control that information.

You will never achieve anything pro nor against China without studying first. You will probably do more harm than good to whatever cause you defend if you act without studying and thinking.

That is a logical fallacy, rushing to conclusions. a Hasty generalization, not a statement that should be regarded to hold any significant value to a reader, you just wasted the time of...

What exactly am I closed off too?

How mind numbingly fallacious your arguments are? I am not missing much about china... I understand the history before Mao as well and appreciate it for what its worth, which isn't much today...
