The unexpected joys of going thru a hardfork on Hive.

in HiveDevs5 months ago

«-Some Looney Random Thoughts-»

I really think and I will bet a ton of Hive that there are very very few amusing stories and enigmatic head scratching experiences on the blockchain. Like those when we are going through an ongoing hardfork as the one on Hive these last days.

Than knowing that while you only have a peculiarly slow, unstable, lousy & crappy internet connection as mine. And after having just enjoyed of a cute long blackout of 36 fancy hours in the dark and incommunicated in solitary confinement cursing and swearing as a drunk sailor non-stop during those same thirty six hours in a row due to the highly unstable electricity service in my place too. So to speak. };)

I am really willing to bet. That few things can enrage you as much and drive you as crazy with doubts until the point of craving to learn a helluva new cursing spells & lotta more swearing words to add to your #posh repertoire.

Than have to face again a newer "Transaction Broadcast Error" like this below. And then be unable to have the certainty if it is because your peculiarly slow, unstable, lousy & crappy internet connection. If it is because the Hive Devs are tweaking shit and messing again with the blockchain code of Hive. Or if it's simply something else.

T.B.E.

Sorry to hear about the blackout bullshit,that really sucks. I felt like checking in on ya so I logged into the hive. HF eh 🤔 what r those devs up to now?

Wonder if that's why binance isn't supporting this asset? I'm hoping to figure out how to liquidate all my winnings from blogging here asap. I've got no idea how to turn my binance wallet into fiat.

Can't pay medical bills with btc they tell me. Thankfully we've got socialised medicine here or I'd absolutely be homeless. Tough go lately but I'm grateful to have internet and power. Not rubbing salt in fresh wounds, I'm just really relieved. Lock down again here,and can't budget for enough beer to matter so I need my Netflix and twitter.

Speaking of, anywhere else out there in cyberspace to catch you? I'm unlikely to hive but I do tweet. Anyway, all the best hombre

Yeah mate. This over here has already become a daily noughttherapy of electrical and communicational isolation. And obviously, a joyous indefinite enjoyment of momentous soliloquies in solitude through the inspiring and exuberant darkness.

Oh! I am very glad that you have decided do so and at the same time allow me to know that you are well. :)

Yep, those are just the natural consequences and the aftermath of going through a hardfork on a blockchain. Let's hope everything culminates and stabilizes soon and you can turn your binance wallet content into fiat faster than expected.

Haha yeah, tell me about it. Fortunately, despite the lack and/or instability of electricity and communications, we can still count on a similar socialised medicine service over here too. Although the luckiest thing in my opinion, is not having to use them for anything any time soon. As for end up absolutely homeless, I'm afraid I'm already there from long time ago.

Speaking of, anywhere else out there in cyberspace to catch you? I'm unlikely to hive but I do tweet. Anyway, all the best hombre.

Well not really. No other place in cyberspace that I am used to visiting frequently and regularly. Well, unless I am in somewhat more indecent and less productive activities across the virtual world. Which in general, isn't that much happening either because of my crappy internet connection to go so often to the church.

All the best for you too hombre. And I hope and aspire to see you again over here very soon and more often buddy. Who knows? Perhaps and even without want wanting, you can be able to get a little bit of more budget for enough beers, your Netflix and pour a few 140 words heresies on twitter once in a while too. };)

Cheers!!

Your part of the world does seem to have particularly unreliable power, at the moment. Sounds much like living in a somewhat rural part of southern Spain under dictator Franco in the early 1970s... power off was a daily occurrence.

Whatever it is they are doing with this HardFork, I just hope the many deliberations mean that it will go off more smoothly than those chaotic affairs back on Steem...

Oh yes, despite the fact that the area in which I am now is actually considered metropolitan area of the country's capital. Let's say that I am on the mountainous frontier forgotten by the gods of the official maintenance of these basic services at the moment. And therefore, I'm more lucky than others to enjoy of more time in the silent darkness. LoL

Yes, me too. I also hope that after they have had to pass by so many of those chaotic affairs back on Steem, they now have gained a lot more of experience to make this current transition as painless and smoothly as would be expected.
