I managed to get it running against my own Lnd node using sphinx-relay. It's still rather tedious, so I find myself watching debug logs and manually managing channels so the podcasters get their minutely sats. But it's very promising.
@adam @dave your node public is 03c140809c1c27433c1ee1826e52307fdd1ef1f891f5eda8d021e5b6433875d33e right? I'm opening a channel to it, but might take a while because I was stingy with the transaction fee.
I also have a channel with what I believe is the main Sphinx node 023d70f2f76d283c6c4e58109ee3a2816eb9d8feb40b23d62469060a2b2867b77f, but it appears to be down. Earlier today it was nicely relaying payments to you.
@adam @dave it might be more productive to connect directly to the node that runs the tribe. That seems to be firstname.lastname@example.org:9735 but I can't connect to that either 😞
It has one major (public) peer which I previously had a channel with but somehow lost: https://1ml.com/node/023d70f2f76d283c6c4e58109ee3a2816eb9d8feb40b23d62469060a2b2867b77f
The future ... it's here!
@dave @adam I was connected to this node: https://1ml.com/node/023d70f2f76d283c6c4e58109ee3a2816eb9d8feb40b23d62469060a2b2867b77f
But after half a dozen successful payments the connection dropped and I'm talking into the void again...
