[UPDATE] Mimisbrunnr: last block received

Filed under: bitcoin, common lisp, mimisbrunnr — Benjamin Vulpes @ 7:49 a.m.

Now on the homepage of my block slicer, Mimisbrunnr:

• Last block received at: 2016-10-09 07:13:43

Perhaps this does not look like much, but it is the web-facing tip of a whole wall of bricks I put into place to track and respond to events dumped into TRB node's logs.

Fully granted that political time is foreign to The Republic of Bitcoin. Nevertheless, I had to implement the bulk of this machinery anyways in order to handle reorgs in any case. Sharing the data with friends is simply a nice cherry, teaser, or status update, depending on your perspective on the project.

Let's be real, though. I just want to show off that my system spots blocks ~5 minutes before other block explorers.
