There is since 2 weeks an intermittent DNSSEC failure on DashNinja.pl domain (no idea why as everything is configured correctly and worked for years). This result in the website been not accessible if you DNS resolver checks for DNSSEC validation (they should...).

Trying to fix that problem on dashninja.pl (it will take at least 48h, restarting the OpenDNSSEC config from scratch), in the meantime you can :
1) disable DNSSEC verification (if you have a local bind allowing that) - Not recommended
2) use TOR v2 : http://seuhd5sihasshuqh.onion/masternodes.html
3) use TOR v3 : http://dtsfpvtrnqcyordz62efdrvhevgmqvpi5ora2nul7c2wikjxw5kboeqd.onion/masternodes.html
4) use I2P : http://dzjzoefy7fx57h5xkdknikvfv3ckbxu2bx5wryn6taud343g2jma.b32.i2p/masternodes.html (or http://dashninja.i2p/masternodes.html if you put it in your adress book)
5) use the alternative URL (HTTPS too, same server, just using a subdomain of my personal domain) : https://dashninja.elbereth.zone/

Normal URL should be fixed.
Additionally masternode/governance listing was stuck for 4 days. Fixed too.

Hi @elbereth , is there an API for getting info about deterministic MNs? (Registration block, last paid block, penalty, etc.)

Dashninja seems broken since yesterday, both the normal dashninja deterministic site and the elbereth.zone site, are you aware of this and perhaps
in the middle of some maintenance ?

Following the budget approval for Q1 2021 (thanks !) :
- The new server is up and running (performance is much better now)
- Explorer is now up and working with Insight, balance is now correct (and much faster to retrieve)

Still not working :
- Port scanner : waiting for dedicated IPv4 to be delivered (it was ordered on 25/12...).
- Explorer : not the final certificate nor IPv4.
- I2P : not configured yet

Reporting I2P is now working on the new server (same address as before).

Still not working :
- Port scanner : waiting for dedicated IPv4 to be delivered (it was ordered on 25/12...).
- Explorer : not the final certificate nor IPv4.

Finally got the IPs.
Explorer is now with correct certificate and final IPv4 (IPv6 is unchanged).
It displays an error :
Code:
Can't connect to dashd to get live updates from the p2p network. (Tried connecting to dashd at : and failed.)
No idea why but is seems to work anyway.

Next step is to bring up the port checker.

Portchecker is back online and should be much quicker than before. :)
Still only checks every hour to avoid spamming.
You can whitelist portchecker.dashninja.pl if you want.
It only sends a version packet and reads the reply.

Side changes :
The protx json file should be as fresh as possible everytime it is generated now (it bypasses cache).
Hopefully this will not overload the server. It is more than fine atm.

Next for Dash Ninja :
I still need to do some stuff on the server admin side, but it is pretty good now (albeit the weird error message in Insight).
Then I will start working on the improvements of the code.
I have spend between 2 and 3 days of work already this month setting up the server and migrating Dash Ninja there.
But that still give some time for code improvements.
The small fixes I did here and there are not yet submitted to Github, I will do that asap.

Fixes:
Governance votes are working again (retrieved in database and shown).
Triggers should also be fixed and this should fix the payment detection for governance objects but I need to check on next superblock.
Protocol description updated.

Github status:
All code changes are on github repositories.

Little end of the first month update :
The server is running smoothly.
I am currently working on the protx (deterministic masternode) detail page. It isn't ready for production yet, I hope to have it for next month.
It is taking more time because I am also using this new page to learn the new Bootstrap version (the current pages uses v3).

Thanks again ! It is good to be able to work on Dash Ninja without fears for my family income. :)

End of February 2021 update :
I used only 2 days of work this month, mainly for maintenance on the server and still learning the Bootstrap new version (my front-end stuff is rusty).
I won't be asking for funding yet because I can still maintain another month with the Q1 funding.

Plan :
For March/April I still got 6 days (dev/maintenance) + server (rental fee).
I might add a testnet server (much smaller) so I can test the new Dash versions beforehand.

End of Mars 2021 update :
I couldn't work at all on Dash Ninja in March.
My work as CIO on my company took all my time, sorry for that (for me too, I love working on DN).
And I seem to be having some sort of allergy since 2 months that prevent me from doing anything past 6pm (strong headaches).
I am sure my time will be more free on the coming months.
Hopefully as soon as this month (France decisions regarding Covid are not helping me).
That means the only budget used this month was for the server rental fee.

Plan :
Next budget will therefore probably be for Q3 in May or June.
Still 6 days of dev in budget. Should cover the next months.
