So what can I say that hasn't been said before about the "hiccup" last week...I hope you all took advantage of the downtime to to catch some sun, I was in the #witness channel (of course) of steem.chat and disabling my witness, as the blockchain, started to falter and halt. (I got great timing)
Four hours later, There was a plan albeit not much knowledge floating about, but a plan. several hours of replay later and I was up and running on 19.12.0 a patched config.ini and a wing and a prayer, and feeling good.
Of course this was not a time to relax as we then had 0.20.1 to turn to, which is fine, let's do another replay and go from there. Only to wake up Saturday morning (my time in Australia) to 0.20.2 thank goodness that update was done and dusted in 10 minutes.
So from our witness perspective we are ready for HF20, I've even taken a day of work to be ready for this HF event, as I said before...
"I EVEN HAVE MY POPCORN"...Lets hope I don't have to eat any, and things go smoothly.
