@resynth1943 I already know, seen about it on Reddit. Although I didn't read about it.

It is to be expected when trusting a few. Adding more DAs would increase the likelihood of 3 ([magical number](gitweb.torproject.org/torspec.)) being able to talk together and therefore produce a consensus. But then we just run into other problems with trust and how many should it be, and all that other jazz. I'm just going to leave it to the Tor devs to figure this one out (like I do with everything else)

Now I know how the average user must feel when some cloud service I've never heard of is down :-(

Luckily, v2 onions or other traffic aren't affected. But one thing is clear, needs to be made even more resilient.

(Noticed the problem yesterday and there's still precious little background info out in the general public, not even an announcement on torproject.org?)

I'm looking forward to the full post-mortem.


@hackerncoder @resynth1943@koyu.space @fribbledom Ah never mind, they've found the problem, done something about it and made a toot: mastodon.social/@torproject/10 (and I should've followed the link at the beginning of the thread). That was quick. is still the best! 👍
