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 (since July 2019) is DigitalOcean.
They have their own status page.
This outage page is hosted at Amazon AWS in case of DigitalOcean problems.

No known issues at the moment
