Nein. You have not seen me in a bad mood when I can’t get to extract the urine from the free-marketeers. :slight_smile:
But your skills are most impressive. Is english your second, third or fourth language?

I’d say fourth. But I use it much more than I use Russian nowadays.

I updated Can I play around with a safe network testnet? - #8 by Southside with a new upload to YouTube with commentary.

Adding audio has bloated the filesize to a frightening extent so this is now the first part of a 3 or more part series on the care and feeding of baby-Fleming.

More later :slight_smile:

Can someone remind me of the command to show the SK of the “default” account created with
safe auth create --test-coins please?

If you self-authorised the CLI after that auth create command, and you mean the CLI’s keypair then: $ safe keys show --show-sk

Nice @Southside ! I’ve been meaning to have a go at recording my screen, so I’ll give screencast a go too.

It’s good to have these sort of videos to help people get the experience without having to do it themselves.

EDIT: Here was a short screencast on the safe networks command where I discover a possible bug.
I’ll redo this safe networks segment and repost it to avoid any confusion

What you saw there is just that you are mapping a network name to the location where actually the list of contacts is written when you switch to a network, and where the CLI/client reads them from to bootstrap to the network. Thus, you should never add a network name mapped to ~/.safe/node/node_connection_info.config since that’s overwritten with whichever network contact addresses you want to connect to.

If you want to have some contacts list in some file, for some local test you have, then you have to create another file and then add a network name mapping it to that other file, e.g.:

$ safe networks add my-local-net <some path>/my-local-node_connection_info.config

If you then switch to my-local-net, CLI will overwrite the ~/.safe/node/node_connection_info.config with the content of <some path>/my-local-node_connection_info.config. You can see the same happens if you switch to a network which is mapped to the S3 URL, it fetches it from the URL and writes that content onto ~/.safe/node/node_connection_info.config.

We could restrict CLI to not allow you to add a network mapped to ~/.safe/node/node_connection_info.config.

OK so its not really a bug - just me DoingItWrong in a screencast - I’ll take it down and redo it carefully based on what you say here about the “default” network

I’d say it’s a UX bug, so we should restrict it so nobody runs into the same scenario.
