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 much more likely, Mike's twitter, Drew's twitter, Fark twitter or all Fark staff/mod/admin twitters together.

Sun Sep 11 20:13:29 EDT 2022: A few random short-lived outages and glitches should be solved now.
Fri Sep 9 14:51:50 EDT 2022: We're attempting to do a major software database update -- one that didn't go well a few months ago. There's been a few updates to it since then, so we're trying again to see if those updates fixed the memory leak bugs from the last attempt. This time we at least know what to look for (memory leaks) if it's gonna blow up again. At this point I've updated the secondary server, leaving the primary on the old version. We'll run this way for a week or so, then try updating the other one next weekend.
No known issues at the moment
Live basic (very basic) health check:
It's probably time I updated this picture from June 2008.
