KLYE Witness Update 10 / 01 / 17

18 days ago

Hail to the users, fellow witnesses and wizards inhabiting our network!

I've been falling behind on proper weekly witness updates as of lately and would like to take this chance to apologize for my lack of updates. Those who follow my blog may have read I've been going through some large life changes over the past few weeks and seemingly it's effected my ability to be productive or useful. Thank you for your patience and not being too critical on me in a time where I've fallen off my normal self and had to rebuild my life again.

This Week as STEEM Witness

One could use the western term "getting back on the horse to ride" to describe the past week for me. After being evicted by the ex girlfriend I certainly had a bit of a sad stretch there which killed my ambition and spark for life.. However I'm starting to realize it was all for the best and while my heart is still a bit broken I'll live, even if I do sort of feel like a hollowed out robot. Resuming my coding efforts, helping buddies upgrade their witnesses and verifying folks on the STEEM.GLOBAL faucet have been the tasks I've gravitated towards in order to get back into the swing of things. Lets look at what I've got going on currently:

STEEM.GLOBAL Faucet Begins Payouts!

Glad to announce that the STEEM.GLOBAL faucet users are achieveing the withdrawal limit and able to take their free STEEM earnings with them! as it sits there are 135 verified accounts on the service and it pays out 0.135 STEEM an hour at this point.

Roughly 98.615 STEEM a month are given away at this point given the amount of registered users. Hoping to grow this number in the future, love giving away STEEM! Make a small fortuen each month with my witness campaign, this is my way of giving some back to the people who support me and need a bit of extra income. Go sign up on STEEM.GLOBAL and get verified by my lovely assistant @lucashunter on this post to start getting free STEEM. STEEM.GLOBAL Verification Post

Witness Upgrades for @bayareacoins Underway

My friend @bayareacoins and I have been buddies for years online, he needed a hand setting up a witness server so I lent him my knowledge to get him running! He's currently ranked #74 and is a great asset to our network with his ambassador abilities. He's gotten STEEM and SBD added to the gambling site https://LuckyGames.co and has plans to contact more sites to get STEEM / SBD added. Currently updating his witness server to STEEM v0.19.2... I messed up and changed his ipv6 configuration last night causing him to miss some blocks, but getting that fixed here today! Go toss the man a witness vote if you have one free, tell him @KLYE sent ya!

Tippy Development to Include SMT Tipping

With the recent announcement of the SMT feature coming to STEEM the executive decision to allow the Tippy project to be able to utilize these user issued tokens has been made, what's another few weeks of development at this point right? Tippy will be open source allowing the code savvy types to take my code and use it how they wish, excited for that.

Working on getting myself a partner to help me code the last bits as well! As capable as I can be there are smarter coders on our network and the hope is I can get someone on team KLYE to help pick up the bits and bytes I am unable to figure out or code myself. One prospect has already been identified and I'll be hopefully recruiting him to the team in the next little while.

Thanks for reading folks! You are the reason I dedicate myself to STEEM.

Women can't live with them, can't live without them...........Positive Attitude will take you through anything. Keep the Chin Up @klye..............

·

I'll live. You are right on the positive attitude. Thanks dude.

·
·

All problems that we face in life are in fact challenges that God sends us to see how we would react to them.

The amazing @kyle. And i always want to emulate the skill of writing good articles like this one.

·

My writing ability is piss poor to be fair.. But if you wanna emulate my poor grammar and use of language be my guest.

·
·

lol. i dont think so. Will still give it a try

good

Great Idea but I am camera shy.

·

All good, you can always cover part of your face with a piece of paper with your username.. As long as your eyes are visible it should be ok.

·
·

Alright do I just post it here. with a piece of paper with my username and date?

·
·
·

You could just post it here if you wish.

Yep, steem.global username and the date works.. Just verifies you are real people.

·
·
·
·

I have a video of me on youtube solving a rubicks cube. If I link it here and post in the comments my username and date does that work? I will post it from the youtube channel. The comment section of my youtube video. The owner of the channel.

·
·
·
·
·

Fuck yeah! That should work I reckon.. Just need proof of human basically,

·
·
·
·
·
·

ok just watch this directly from youtube and in the comments is my steemit username braxton101

Notice how my name is Braxton on youtube and my steemit blog is braxton101

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

What's your STEEM.GLOBAL username.. braxton101 isn't showing up as a valid account

·
·
·
·
·
·

Ok did that work bro?

Curious to see how SMTs will play out and how many projects will jump to support them.

Good stuff man

·

I think most projects will embrace or find a way to integrate with the SMT features. Excited to get my hands on the user asset commands to build off of them.

Wow, sorry you have been having a tough week. Glad to see you jumping back slowly, but steady.

·

Gotta keep moving forward as to not stagnate and waste away.

·
·

You totally got this my friend. I noticed you updated a lot of your witness votes, how did you go about deciding who to vote for?

·
·
·

It's partially random, partially who asks me to vote and partially what the witness is offering for the community.. with some magic thrown in there. :P

·
·
·
·

I support several of the same witness, but I noticed you didn't vote for followbtcnews. What are your thoughts on his witness?

@klye could you run a webinar or twitch session setting up a witness node, that'd be awesome. I'm interested in becoming a witness but it's not easy and your post on creating it is huge and comprehensive.

·

The noob guide to witness running needs to be revised.. Will perhaps get to that in the upcoming weeks.

It takes a certain level of linux box expertise and knowledge of compiling programs in order to get STEEM running on a box, while I'm a firm believer anyone is capable most people psych themselves out before they even try.

If KLYE can do it you can too!

I'll think on the web seminar thing.. Could be informative.. I'm a crappy teacher however.

·
·

Linux isn't my problem, but i'm sure the process could be made to sound more digestible.

Perhaps a webinar isn't the go, just a Youtube video. You could even ask for donations in STEEM to cover the costs. I'd pay to be able to witness, as I really think writers and curators should take ownership for the infrastructure of steem, instead of leaving it in the hands of what are effectively just steem miners.

·
·

Also, if you are a coder, wouldn't you be able to compile and package up some debs for people who don't like compiling? Now that all the time you were wasting on forming meaningful relationships with the opposite sex is free ;) this could take your mind off things.

Sorry not being harsh, I've just been through a messy divorce in the past and I know how much it sucks.

Sorry about your girlfriend,you know sometimes some bad things happen and you have to let go but i believe it is preparing you

·

All good in the hood man, just threw me off a bit. We're still friends, in fact I'm over at her house playing video games at the moment.. The dynamics have changed but I can't blame her for not wanting to date me anymore... I'm a handful on a good day and downright inhospitable on a bad one.. :P

Did someone hail a wizard?

·

lol. No, how is our illegitimate love child doing?

·
·

I have him shaking a cup on the corner of the street singing for tips right now. I'll be sure to ask him as soon as he's done with the hustling for the day. :) Glad to hear you're rebounding from that break up. Life loves to throw curve-balls at us eh?

·
·
·

lmao. Well done.

Love likes to throw life to shit. :D

Nice one...

Hey, Klye! Would you consider voting for our @blockchained witness? We've recently launched a 0% market fee Steem/SBD gateway for Bitshares DEX. And we've been running our witness nodes since spring.

Hello @klye I must commend your efforts. Sorry about the ex.girl thing. This time I believe you have come in full force. Besides I have sent my verification picture to activate my account few days ago and I'm yet to be activated. Kindly advise.

·

Will wait for my assistant to add you to the verify list.

Orr.. What's your username on STEEM.GLOBAL?

No worries about the ex, we are still friends. Just sucked to get kicked out without proper time to get another place.

·
·

bob-elr is my username. Thanks on anticipation .

Lol @ Ex. Can still make up for it..

I tried to register for STEEM.GLOBAL but couldn't figure it out... if you get some free time i could use some help...

And yet, there is some good news :) Resteemed and Upvoted.

You are the everyman that gives us hope.

You were on my mind, way later on here than I should be, so dropped by to see what you are up to.

My guess is about 5' 9" or so less the mullet.

Have a nice week buddy. You give us hope.

What exactly does a witness do? From reading the above does the process involve providing weekly updates on one's life? Sounds like something I would be interested in :)
When I visit https://steem.global/ I cannot find the link to sign up there. Can someone please help?

Amazing posting keep it up

Faucet, did somebody say faucet?

I hope they left it on, because I am on my way with a 5 gallon drum on the back of my mule.

Is it chilly up there in Canada? Should I bring a jacket?

Steem on, old son. Steem on!
