Tecnosgirl witness is up and running

last month

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.

Not sure what tutorials you used, but if my guide was one of them and you have suggestions for improvements please let me know. Just remember if you put out a tutorial and don't update it as things change you will cause the same issues for future newbies....

I actually think I changed my mind about even trying to do that now, I think I am gonna recommend the hotbox for newbies who don't know what they are doing, as once I went to doing it that way, it became simple and I had very little I actually had to type in that I could mess up

·
·

Fair enough, but just realize hotbox provides no server security configuring.

·
·
·

Docker does

·
·
·
·

Docker only provides protection on a container, it doesn't prevent access/attacks on your server.

I think I might have misspoken abojt where I found it going back to where I was asking about it and hitting the link that was shared before I asked. Things I think are merged together from 2 days of straight programming

Mind you it only took so long because I started it on the wrong OS twice. But once I got the right OS loaded it didn't take long to set up, learn from my mistake.

·

We hammered through it on the third go 👍 was a good learning experience for me 👌 much more confident in trouble shooting at least getting the server running now so thank you for being patient with me as well 😅

·
·

it is showing up as disabled forever now in on the witness page, I logged back in but I don't see where the problem is, as it is showing the same stuff it was when we were done.

Excellent 👍 / I will check today later to vote for your witness _ By the way, I found it disabled.

·

I am up again and working on it, sadly I had to get some sleep but now that I am rested I am ready to hit the pavement again so to speak and get this figured out.

·

Done 👍

·
·

Minor hiccup 😅 will troubleshoot with tecnosgirl in the morning... may have been a syncing issue or something

·
·

it is online finally

·
·
·

Well Done 👍

Done!

Wow! Super duper, you made it....congrats! Just voted your witness.

·

Thanks for your support and yes finally it is no longer talk

Done:)

Thank you, your majesty, for your support of the Smoke blockchain decentralization. :D

·

Love the blockchain and thanks for your support

Awesome! :)

·

I already ran into technical issues but I will figure it out damn it.

Congratulations!!! I am SO happy for you!
And thanks to @d00k13 and @rjswab for the help; I know you've been wanting this for some time.

·

Yes but I am still having one slight hiccup. Hopefully it is fixed this morning I am connected all the way except on final key I messed up. @jrswab is help me trouble shoot it. I worked on it till 2 am and the last step I messed up on but hopefully it is fix and live in the next hour or so.

I tried to vote for you as a witness but is says "tecnosgirl disabled forever....why is that?

·

I am having technical difficulties with one of the keys, I am currently working on it. It was running I made my post 10 minutes after I posted the server crashed. We think it is a key issue and I am going through the code to fix it. Taking a short break to eat and then the next time you guys will hear from me I should have good news. Please be patient.

·

I have it online and synced now and producing blocks it was a simple error in the code one line had two errors in it.

Did it get disabled?

·

idk what happened it was running, don't know why it is showing up that way on the witness page. I am troubleshooting as we speak hopefully I have it fix by tonight or tomorrow

·

I was given the wrong exit but keep running code, am working on the fix, will have it done by morning I am exhausted and have decided I just can't do any more right now and need some sleep will be back at it in the morning.

·

We think we are just about there we have two steps left and hopefully in the next hour I have this figured out. Really bummed it went up then down. It isn't disabled forever just working out the kinks, shit I prepaid for a year in advance for the server. I am getting this bitch running, been at it all day and will stay at it till it is up and running
