Is the DNS for down? April 8, 2005 6:08 AM   Subscribe

Is the DNS for down? I can't reach or This might not be causing problems for everyone yet as DNS lookups get cached on local nameservers, but still needs fixing quickly.

Nope, and I've tested without going through any caching servers, ie:

[/home/fvw] nslookup
> server
Default server:
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

yes, I still use nslookup, so sue me.

I can't hit the irc server at either, maybe it's related?

And I'm on Time Warner cable for what it's worth.

ask and metatalk just dropped off the DNS here. I was lucky to save the ip address so put them in my hostfile now.

The server farm where the turlyming box is hosted is undergoing some power grid rennovation today. They claimed it was just going to be two hours offline, very early this morning, but I think it has extended beyond that.

Comcast's DNS is also down worldwide as of this morning, according to other people in our building that aren't cool enough to be on DSL or to have their own DNS servers.

AskMe and MetaFilter are both down for me. :(

jeez, finally.

Yay, we're back. Perhaps it would be a good idea to have one of the nameservers for metafilter run on the metafilter server instead of having them both over at EV1?
