A Chain of Dumpster Fires...
Talk about walking into a crap show... That's likely where a lot of people are after all the stuff that has been going on in the crypto space. I recently got my friend to invest a little bit of money in Hive and I almost feel bad for him.
Not because of Hive of course, I really don't think there is anywhere better he could be putting his money right now. It's just the fact that I had him do it right before the whole FTX thing and now here we are.
As if the Luna dumpster fire wasn't enough, we had to get hit with this whammy. Of course, I think they were necessary, but it still doesn't make it sting any less. Especially for those who had large sums of money invested. Or large to them.
I had some plans this morning to go to an appointment and then leisurely make my way into work. Wouldn't you know it, I get a call from my wife (who works where I do) that the Internet and phones are done throughout the entity.
Yet another dumpster fire to navigate. I'm actually still working through the aftermath of that. I was able to get phones up and running, but Internet has been a different story entirely. I'm actually a bit surprised that people aren't standing outside my door with pitchforks and torches.
Waiting to make a dumpster fire out of me.
Good thing I know a few tricks of the trade so that I can still be here on Hive interacting with you while the Internet is down. It's magic really.
Speaking of dumpster fires, have you noticed how bad engagement and curation are on Hive lately? I mean horrible. It's like they just dropped off the face of the Earth. Sure, there are still some of us still kicking around, but many of the regulars seem to have faded into the background.
It doesn't really change things for me, but it is still a bit disappointing to see. How fickle we seem to be at times. The truth is, Hive has given back to me just about as much as I have given to it. Why quit now.
I've gotta cut this short. My virtual machine is up now and I can start working on recovering my server settings.
Here's to the dumpster fires of life am I right?!
