What up Smokers, having started down the path of learning Linux I figured what better place to start than my first ever witness for the Smoke Network?

Let me reintroduce myself, my name is Cam and I go by @d00k13 most places including Steem. I am founding member of the #OneLoveDTube community on Steem and have invested a lot of time and energy into our projects. The most notable being the IPFS hosting service we provide which will enable me to embed my videos for playing here on Smoke. Proud to say that I have help should any problems arise from the tech boys @graylan and @techcoderx from #OneLoveDTube already here on the Smoke Network.

My legacy so far has been one of support and encouragement for creators and the platform alike by empowering and inspiring my fellow video creators while also producing long term file hosting solutions.

Now I take the next step moving into supporting blockchains directly through running a witness and started on Smoke with the lower system requirements making use of what I have available. My rig is dual purpose being both an #IPFS node and Smoke Witness, a 3ghz processor with 16gb ram on a blazing fibre optic connection I dare say that I’ll be able to run both for quite awhile before requiring any upgrades.

Setting a personal goal for myself to make it into the top 21 witnesses, I figure that video content may be how I do it... so watch for my next post, a video reintroduction and explanation of what running a witness means to me.

I’m the meantime please help me reach my goal of being a top witness, again I beg....

🙏 Please Vote my Witness 🙏

I use hotbox and for some reason it keeps crashing. Not sure why. Still trying to figure that out. Sometimes shows that for me too.

Ahh well I hope you can get that figured out, I did the typical github install for Ubuntu and other than a few missed blocks due to a connection reset it’s been extremely stable....

What is hotbox? 😅

It is just a tool that dockerized the whole witness eco system and makes it pretty easy to install. Check it out here:

Ohh dang I heard a little bit about that from @jrswab 🤦‍♂️ didn’t put 2 & 2 together 😅

I did the console system via a post I found here on Smoke... seems extremely stable and fairly easy to get setup 😉
