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. 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.

No known issues at this time
Live basic health check:
It's probably time I updated this picture.
