Fark.com status page

This is the status page for Fark's behind-the-scenes geekery. If there's a major outage or problem, we'll try to post something here about it (unless we're too up to our eyeballs in trying to actually fix it)... so check here if Fark's hosed for an extended length of time. Normally this page will be blank. :-) For more minor issues, see Mike's blog, or more likely, Mike's twitter, Drew's twitter, Fark twitter or all Fark staff/mod/admin twitters together. On (very!) rare occasion you may be able to catch Mike on our webcam at QX's data center.

Our normal hosting provider is QX.net, a local ISP here in Lexington, KY. This outage page is hosted at DigitalOcean in case of backbone-related problems.


Tue Jul 19 08:54:29 EDT 2016 : Now they seem to be having the opposite problem: IPv4 is down (to some but not all destinations), IPv6 is up, again starting about 6 am ET.
Seems to be sorted out as of Tue Jul 19 09:23:18 EDT 2016

Thu Jul 14 12:17:15 EDT 2016 : We've had an IPv6 outage since about 6 am ET. IPv4 remains fine. I've asked our provider for an ETA on them fixing it. If your system is dual-stack it should fall back automatically (though it seems some don't). They fixed it around 1 pm ET.
