@ura-soul Witness Update - My Witness Server is Live And Upgraded With the Latest Fix For the Recent Steem Outage

Thanks to @someguy123 for providing the package of the patched code for Steem that was needed following the recent freezing of the blockchain - post HF21. After over 24 hours of outage we seem to be moving again. Steempeak and Steemit are both publishing new posts and most key RPC servers seem to be recovered.

My witness server has been online through most of the outage, so it has just picked up where it left off and is processing blocks as usual, with no dropped blocks.

I imagine that some apps will have some patching to do to process data that was backlogged due to the outage - but generally, things should be useable as usual by now.

Wishing you well,
Ura Soul

Nice see things moving again, and have everything back online !

Always seems to be a massive and unexpected catastrophe with each HF.

I don't have any direct involvement with the C coding for the blockchain, but as I understand it - despite a lot of testing this time - there were scenarios that weren't accounted for. This is part of why the software companies that support investment banks with billions/trillions of dollars of assets will employ large teams of well paid testers - we don't have that for Steem at this point so bugs slip through.
