    Howdy Niels, Jeremy here. I'll be answering these on behalf of our team. GAMiX intends to provide 24/7 support 365 days a year. The GAMiX team wasn't planning on taking a group holiday. Typo. :) We look at Factom as an investment in the future. Of course everybody wants to be compensated...

    Hi Quintilian, We like to utilize Monit for monitoring overall health of our machines. CPU utilization, used memory, disk space, process state, network. Those are metrics we usually use. Default option for Monit is to send email if any of the tests and or repair attempts fail, but the tool also...

    OK, makes sense. Our goal is for current ANOs and the community as a whole to look at us and see: The ability to maintain a 99% or higher server uptime. An open and humble attitude towards the community. A team that's willing to take instruction, communicate known issues, and be helpful to...

    Thank you very much for these thought-provoking questions. GAMiX will devote as much time as needed to ensure any nodes that we operate are running 24/7 without interruption. We'll provide this with monitoring, reporting, and push notifications when an event occurs that may signal a node may...

    Thank you for your questions, Matt. We're not looking for grant work at this time although that could change in the future as we grow our team. We're making a pledge to offer 50% effeciency for at least the first six months and giving the other 50% back to the protocol grant pool. I don't see...

    Thanks for the questions and comments @DChapman. I'll answer each of your comments and questions below. Yes, those are our campaign promises if you will. There's much more in the meat of the document, but that kind of serves as the summary (tldr) section :). Yes. We would set our effeciency at...

    GAMiX Authority Node Application

    Yes. Any nodes that we administer will go through the same process. Three of our founding members are technicians and we also have an additional employee who serves as a backup. We’re spread across several time zones which would give us some really good overlap. i.e. if one person is sleeping...

    GAMiX Authority Node Application

    Hi Niels, this is a very fair and observant question. By definition, to fat-finger is to type something inaccurately, but I happen to use that phrase as an euphemism for screwing up. So I technically didn’t fat finger it, I screwed up. :) Josh Smith from our team will be posting our answers...

    GAMiX Authority Node Application

    Great question and given enough time I could probably write a full paper on it. I think the best way to explain our excitement is to share a story about how Collin and I first started working together, and then show how if Factom was fully functioning back then it could have helped a dire...

    GAMiX Authority Node Application

    We have several additional ideas that we think would be a great way to help further the Factom protocol as a whole. For instance, we administer a large open source Xenforo community (Factomize.com is on Xenforo too) and we’d be glad to pitch in and help moderate, theme edits, manage web servers...

    GAMiX Authority Node Application

    I think I might have fat-fingered that answer. My apologies and thanks for asking again. From what I understand this question is asking what percent of the FCT payment for hosting the nodes will we * be deferring to the grant pool. Correct? If so, it's actually 35% for one node, and 35% for...
