I been wanting to do it for a while
But regardless of what some think they know about my life it wasn't till recently I felt like I could afford to run a witness. First I didn't want to do a month to month billing, life happens and I wanted to make sure my witness would run uninterrupted by non payment issues. But there was another issue I had to find the time to learn how to do the programming and I am a busy woman. Finally things lined up in my life where I could afford to prepay for a year in advance and found someone to take all day to help me set up my witness. A big shout out and Thank you to @d00k13 for helping me step by step and another shout out and thank you to @rjswab for helping when issues came up.
After some struggles
We finally got through the code and got my witness online. I am running on a VPS of Ubuntu 16.04 (64 Bit). I first downloaded the wrong OS to the server then Changed to the Ubuntu 19.10 but that was causing wallet syncing issues so I downgraded to the Ubuntu 16.04 as it has no issue with the wallet syncing. I am exhausted and plan to make a step for step for dumb asses like me that get confused by the currently tutorials on how to start a witness. I took step by step screen shots on how to do it. So in the coming days I will find some time to get a witness for dummies version for those who like me want to start one but when they got into the posts about it, was left more confused. I got to say that I am not confused anymore.
So I ask you to consider voting me for witness
I will do my best to be a good witness and not to miss any blocks. but I am new at this so it could happen, please be patient with me as I learn the ropes. I look forward to helping support the block chain and give it more stability and consensus for the Hardfork. You can vote for witnesses here at this link https://smoke.io/~witnesses and be careful spelling my screen name there is no h in there. tecnosgirl is how it is spelled I know many of you misspell it because of how it is pronounced.
Till next time stoners
I am exhausted I been at this for 10 hours today, I am sure @d00k13 is exhausted to cause he has been right along with me today helping me for the last 10 hours. Seriously I can't thank him enough. I am off of here to make some dinner and relax the rest of the night. I will be back later to curate some awesome content. But I am taking this week off from the Roach Sunday contest, as I am just too tired to mess with it tonight. But I will be back at it next week. Don't forget it's 4:20 somewhere so puff puff pass, don't mess up the rotation.
