I've been having trouble getting to
cdn.sstatic.net all day. It's been crippling not to be able to play Stack Exchange!
Chrome's resource panel was showing 'host not found' for
I think I've tracked it down to this:
I have IPv6 connectivity and my machine is querying for
AAAA records first. Here's how it goes:
[michael@challenger:~]$ host -t ANY cdn.sstatic.net 22.214.171.124 cdn.sstatic.net is an alias for sstatic.net.cdn.cloudflare.net.
OK, a CNAME, let's follow that:
[michael@challenger:~]$ host -t AAAA sstatic.net.cdn.cloudflare.net 126.96.36.199 Host sstatic.net.cdn.cloudflare.net not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
Whoah! That's not good. NXDOMAIN means that domain doesn't exist. That's not right. Let's try a different domain to see what should be happening:
[michael@challenger:~]$ host -t AAAA serverfault.com 188.8.131.52 serverfault.com has no AAAA record
Not sure what exactly is going on here, but someone needs to fix something.

It's been crippling not to be able to play Stack Exchange!
The only winning move is not to...aww, yeah, okay.
