Finally running a Bitcoin node!

Today, I have finally downloaded the full block chain and am running a full bitcoin node (took \~3days). I have a blockchain explorer, but I still need to work on installing and running lightning network, and exploring other tools. It's a good feeling. I will write up what I bought, what I returned, and how I got on. Just wanted to tell someone... pretty excited to be a part of the Bitcoin Full Node community.
