Hey all harmonauts.
So I think most of you are aware of recent outage we had. So I thought I will take a moment to reflect what I saw following discord/reddit.
First of all a huge shout out and thank you to the team. Not gonna lie, shard0 went offline at the moment I tried to bridge a huge chunk of my bag. And oh boy it was a stressful day.
But deep down I knew everything will be ok, those things happens. But we need to learn from this.
So few things I noticed:

Nowadays communication from team is superb - yes there could be improvements but it's like day and night what was before. Daniel/Soph and others did a great job updating everyone and coordinating validators.

* Dedicated channels for only validators - So mainly I was following harmony mainnet-nodes discord channel. And some of the validators pointed out that there should be private or read only channel for validators. Cause during outage there was moments when random people came in to cry or troll. Even worse that could happen is if bad actor pastes some code to run that is malicious and compromise blockchain.
* Updates rolled out in smaller chunks? - So I'm not sure about this one cause I didn't dig deep enough. But from what I saw on github 4.3.2 was a bi...
