Hey RoelandP, It was great meeting you in person briefly at the Bitfest event.

Would you be interested in publishing price feeds for 3 new Algorithm Based Assets on the BTS DEX? They're called Verthandi, Skuld and Urthr.

Here's the new price feed script repo:
New parallel price feed script: (change the wss server & min price feed value difference at your discretion).

It would be massively appreciated, thanks 👍

Witness Outage explained.  A Perfect Storm

During the day & night of 11 - 12 september 2019 my witness stopped producing blocks for several hours, so bad. This is an unforgivable failure and should not have happened, with multiple failovers running and a monitoring script in place to automatically switch.

But still it happened.... What was going on?
It appears a perfect storm happened: Segfaulted main node (?) meh. And my witnessMonitorFailover script got stuck so I did not receive notifications to check. This is the first time in 1000+ days producing blocks.

After investigating it was an outlying coincidence: The server provider on which I have my monitoring script running, had an unexpected maintenance to the vps environment rack (?!!), causing the script to become unresponsive. (FYI i have bitshares related nodes in 3 different providers @ 4 different physical locations).

Most painful thing was that I relied 100% on my failover script. I was missing blocks while literally sitting behind my computer. And even when I launch my browser I have an overview page about witness work opened by default, ... But i didnt launch a new browser... Bummer.

- double redundancy on failover scripts or at least a monitoring & notify tool on a second server is not such a bad idea + don't forget to check all nodes before going to bed (!)

Sorry for unwantingly delaying your transactions and I will learn from this.

See you on the chain & thank you for your continued support,
