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,
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 is at QX.net. This outage page is at DigitalOcean in case of backbone-related problems.

Database server is being rebooted to fix a stuck query that refused to die, even after a 'kill -9' on the master db process. Expect things to be down
for only about 3 minutes.

Two brief 10-15 minute outages starting shortly for firmware updates (one for a cranky disk controller that seems to dislike SSDs, one for outdated UEFI).
These aren't related to the 15-20 min outage earlier this afternoon, which was unplanned.
The UEFI update completed successfully at Sun Nov 8 22:22:01 EST 2015.
The disk controller firmate update failed and will be retried shortly.
Second attempt on the disk controller update was successful at Sun Nov 8 22:33:10 EST 2015.

We will be down for one hour this Saturday night (early Sunday morning), during the Daylight Savings Time rollback,
for routine database maintenance and for investigating a hardware issue on a file server.
We'll start at Sun Nov 1, 12:59 am Eastern Daylight Time, and end an hour later around 1:01 am Eastern Standard Time.
For you US west coasters, that starts at 9:59 pm PDT Oct 31 -- so stay out trick-or-treating a bit longer or something.
UPDATE Sun Nov 1 01:01:00 EST 2015: This was completed on time.
