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.
Wed Aug 24 21:57:24 EDT 2016: Firewalls were rebooted to fix an urgent security issue. Urgent enough that it couldn't wait til after midnight, sorry. Apparently our upstream doesn't have their failover quite worked out yet (known issue we've been working with them on) so if it doesn't come back up in the next 5 minutes I may have to go down and kick things. My fault on that one, sorry. Update: fixed our end at Wed Aug 24 22:18:45 EDT 2016 but for some reason we still aren't reachable from certain destinations, or maybe we just have a misconfig where our internal VLANs are hosed and the external ones facing you lot are fine.
