Re: [tor-talk] help needed to stress-test an onionbalanced HS - everyone is invited

Hash: SHA256

It is up. Tested from multiple different places. It could be that you
got an older outdated but yet non-expired descriptor. I had the HS
running for testing before enabling OnionBalance (and OnionBalance
modifies descriptors, but for a while the previous non-expired ones
are still 'alive' in the network).

Should be fixed now. Please re-check and let me know.
