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 normal hosting provider is QX.net, a local ISP here in Lexington, KY.
This outage page is hosted at Amazon AWS in case of ISP or BGP-related problems.
Fri Jun 21 13:45:23 EDT 2019: We are still having trouble reliably delivering email to AT&T-hosted domains, including Yahoo, Prodigy, Ameritech, SBC etc. We've asked them twice to fix this, but they aren't in any particular hurry... so as of right now there's a 50-50 chance you'll get it delivered and 50-50 chance you'll get it bounced. All other email issues from this week (relating to our moving mail servers) should be fixed now.
No obvious issues at the moment.
Live basic health check:
It's probably time I updated this picture from June 2008.
