We’re doing an update later tonight that will require taking all the servers down at once. It won’t be very long (famous last words), but it can’t be staggered sadly.
Update: All done. Everything seems to be normal.
Our datacenter is currently experiencing network issues. We’ll update as we get more information.
Update tonight 4/1
We’re planning an update this evening, around a half hour maybe of expected downtime.
9:46 PM PDT: downtime starts now.
10:07 PM PDT: we appear to be back and good.
A brief hiccup
3/25/14 - We’re in the process of applying some changes right now. Sit tight, it will be right back.
Some networking troubles
2/22/14 - We’ve been having some networking difficulties and are working on a fix.
Edited to add: Um, I also apparently don’t know what date it is today. We had trouble on the 22nd, but we’re having a redux today 2/23.
Update: We seem to have a solution that is holding.
12/19/13: 8:04 PST: We’re checking into the errors coming up right now.
Update: it’s a networking issue at our provider. Good times. Nothing we can do but practice wearing our angry eyebrows.
8:30 pm: Apparently the angry eyebrows worked. Also, they kept us from being attacked by tigers that whole time.
12/11/13: We’re planning a site update tonight which may involve some brief downtime.
10:23 pm PST: brief downtime starting now; we should be right back.
10:31 pm: A little longer than we guessed, maybe another 10 minutes.
10:46 pm: We’re back with the new stuff, may be oddities for a few minutes still.
All done now. A few little things to fix for tomorrow.
Wed Aug 7, 9:58 pm pdt: The site will be going down shortly for planned upgrades tonight. We expect to be down for around an hour.
10:38 pm: downtime is starting…
11:31 pm: we still have some data updates to finish… maybe another half hour.
12:25 am: Always the optimist. Still, everything is going smoothly, just slowly.
12:44 am: We’re flipping it on. Let’s see what we broke.
1:45 am: We had a css file that got corrupted, and we’re just using our noodly appendages to poke in all the corners, test all the new routes, etc…
2:39 am: all looks good!
Having an issue with the mobile site. We’re on it.
Update: all better now.
Our DNS provider is experiencing a denial of service attack. If you can see this, you’re probably not affected. We’re on it.
Update: We have a new DNS provider and this should be propagating through the network.
Final update: We seem to be all back, and with our brand new DNS provider. That wasn’t any fun at all.
