I'm aware I tend to miss a couple blocks every week. It hurts every time I see that number incrementing.


I did a major hardware upgrade that was supposed to take 1 hour and took 12! Hence the missed blocks.
Hopefully that won't happen again.
I'm Also learning to disable the witness when doing to maintenance.
I spend a whole lot of time trying to use transmitter and then realised I can do it on your Hivetasks.

BTW: it would be great if you could upgrade HiveTasks to show LEO returns from posts along with Hive returns.
