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.
Our web/db servers are hosted on Vultr,
and they have their own status page.
Our images are hosted on Linode, and they have their own status page.
Our email servers, and this outage page, are hosted at Amazon AWS in case of problems with the other hosting companies.
Sun Jan 29 13:05:49 EST 2023: We're debugging problems with a couple of our webservers. Email delivery might be delayed and static pages (for non-logged-in users) are behind.
UPDATE: Vultr's DNS servers are being glitchy, so we temporarily switched to the Google/Cloudflare ones. Like they say, "it's always DNS"...
Sun Jan 29 15:30:28 EST 2023: Vultr will be doing maintenance overnight on Feb 3, from midnight to 4 am ET (5-9 am UTC). Unknown what the impact, if any, will be on our VM's.
No known issues at the moment.
Live basic (very basic) health check:
It's probably time I updated this picture from June 2008.
