During the last weeks (months) there have been a couple of issues with my public api node due to full and broken hard drives, which gave me the opportunity to completely rebuild my setup.
It now consists of 5 servers in total, with hived and hivemind nodes in both Europe and North America, and a proxy to route you to the location closest to you based on your IP address. The other location is used as a backup in case yours is down.
The main access point is still https://api.pharesim.me, and for most users this is the only one of concern.
If you want to skip the georouting, you can also directly access the individual services using location-specific subdomains: https://api-eu.pharesim.me, https://api-us.pharesim.me, https://acchist-eu.pharesim.me, https://acchist-us.pharesim.me, https://hivemind-eu.pharesim.me, https://hivemind-us.pharesim.me
Please notify me if you find any issues or bugs, and sorry for the downtime to anyone who experienced problems because of it.
