MetaFilter in meatspace

What comprises the total hardware used in delivering to us our beloved MetaFilter? Not just the main server, but also any personal electronics a mod might use to regulate.

How ya gonna pay for that there server?

The status blog says that new hardware is on the way. Is this putting a financial strain on MetaFilter? Should we take up a collection? [more inside]

DNS Issues?

It looks like your DNS server is failing. Metafilter is hosted by eod.com, and they aren't answering for anything in metafilter.com. I'm trying to get this posted quickly before my caches expire... I already can't reach ask.metafilter.com

Eod has only one IP address for their 'two' nameservers, 72.36.180.243. It pings, but doesn't answer name service requests.

You might want to consider hosting your domain with someone with enough money to put two servers on the net. :(

Server Update Announcement

I just updated the server to CFMX 7. If you see any obvious weird errors, toss them in here.

Server Downtime

Why the downtime? For the last week or so, Metafilter goes down at late morning GMT, and doesn't spring back to life until Late afternoon GMT. It seems too regular to be anything other than a deliberate act. Is it going to be a regular thing? How are us European MeFites going to waste time at work?

Reasons for Downtime

Hey, just curious if the reason this site tends to have downtime with relative frequency (it's not terrible or anything, but it's certainly more than any other popular site I check out) is a result of the ISP it's hosted at, or the server it's running on...

I'm not asking to be a jerk or anything, I'm just curious, since I have a 1u server colocated somewhere myself, and am moving it to a new facility soon etc.. so network / hosting / downtime issues pique my interest...

Upgrades in the Works

Uptime will probably be sporadic over the next few days while I do some software and hardware upgrades. On the upside, I get to bask in the glow of the server while I do the upgrades.

Thanks, Matt!

OK, either everyone has decided to take a day off of MeFi, or the new server is finally in place. Kudos to Matt (and the rest of the mefi crew), the site really smokes.

Moving MeFi Serviers

So, um, the MetaFilter box may be moving soon. I can bring it home and host it off my DSL (upgrading the upload line to 384kbps), but it'll be slightly slower than the shared T1 we had at Pyra. If anyone has any ideas for budget rackspace or has some bandwidth to spare, let me know here or via email, thanks.

I'll give warning if/when it moves, but expect 24-48 hours of downtime when that takes place (and to the 15 other domains I host on the same box).

Server Upgrade

Just an FYI: thanks to the enormous generosity of my dad, there will be a new server for MetaFilter, which should be up sometime next week.

Lately the traffic has been killing the box, and memory is always being maxed out.

The new box will have more than double the horsepower in terms of Mhz and RAM. It'll be kickass.

MeFi Downtime

Just a warning - MetaFilter will be moving servers at the end of the month, which will be a down time of a couple days.
