The SE link shortener (http://s.tk) is no longer working.

Could this be fixed?

    I'll ping someone about that. This isn't intentional. (Well, it being down might be intentional if we're doing some maintenance or something that I'm not aware of, but point being that it'll come back up ... sometime.) – Adam Lear Jan 12 '13 at 17:14
  • @anna K, thanks :) I was afraid they were killing it due to lack of use or something :s Also, could it be updated to include new beta sites? Last I checked, s.tk/chemistry lead me to SE.com/chemistry (whereas older beta sites work) – Manishearth Jan 12 '13 at 17:16

So, there where two issues here.

1) Someone (who I will not name for the sake of all involved) ... may have not chkconfig on'd the named service when he/she/it rebuilt the NY DNS servers to upgrade them to CentOS 6.x

This caused two of our 4 DNS servers to not respond to any requests when they where rebooted for patches yesterday night. We should have been alerted to that, but it appears we weren't which I will have to look into.

2) At some point the s.tk config was removed from our slave config in mercurial. I will have to go through the file history to see who to properly blame for that.

At this point I have corrected both of these issues and all should be well in the world again.

  • I guess it is for including cousin It. ;) – kiamlaluno Jan 13 '13 at 13:21
