Happy Thursday, everyone! I hope the day finds you well. Over here where I'm located, this fine, crisp, December morning brings with it a few things:
If you've been participating with @exhaust so far -- there has probably been a time or two when a run didn't upload for you nicely, or didn't work for some reason, and you had to upload again. I know it has happened to me numerous times. So rather than making things work appropriately, I made a delete button instead! Brilliant!
Next time you need to tidy things up a bit, pop over to your Dashboard and look for something like this:
It's a modest update, but it's step #1 on the path towards adding an "edit post" button, which should be able to edit the details of a run, swap out GPS files, or update photos (which have been acting up recently).
Nobody seems to like hiking over the last little bit. I'll try to change that this weekend. I'm itching to get some fresh.
That's enough rambling for now.
I'm moderately confident in the future of Steem -- mostly because we're all here currently using it. At the end of the day, things are powered by people. Most of you are more excited about running and exercising than earning rewards -- this is just a bit of icing on the cake of life. At the end of the day, if Steem keeps chuggin' along in a sustainable way -- so will @exhaust.
If the post from @ned yesterday about the upgrades to RocksDB and numerous other things I don't fully understand is accurate, then we can expect to have an full @exhaust node, and potentially a witness running some time in the early new year after the updates.
On a related note -- huge shoutout to fellow @exhaust user @aussieninja for getting to the root of the important stuff in the announcement mentioned above:
