I cook a delicious onion stew, without any chilli peppers.
There is an ongoing issue on the Tor network because of an attack on it. This attack breaks V3 hidden services, and I have been working on finding a workaround. I have found something that seems to always work.
I have been restarting Tor and that seems to get things working again. It is pretty simple and one can automate it with cron jobs. There can still be issues sometimes but this works 99% of the time.
Keep in mind that to test a hidden service to know if the fix is working, two instances of Tor are involved, a client and a server. One will have to restart both for this to work.
The attacks are not directly against the V3 services affected. My servers use a lot of V3 services which are kept private and not disclosed, for things like the connections to my relays and private exits. These have all still had issues despite only myself knowing what they are.
