DNS Troubles

Hi All,

This morning there was a fire at the datacenter that houses our primary nameserver. The load spike caused trouble in our secondary and tertiary nameservers.

At the moment we still have two nameservers up and running:

ns1.penny-arcade.com : down
ns2.penny-arcade.com : down
ns3.penny-arcade.com : down
ns4.penny-arcade.com : up
ns5.penny-arcade.com : up

I figure most people won't see any performance trouble but if you guys hear anything on IRC/Ventrillo about trouble "resolving" penny-arcade.com, let me know.

    The same datacenter fire that took down authorize.net in Seattle? Or were there two datacenter fires today?

    I couldn't access the site very briefly just a moment ago, but I don't know if it was related to DNS.

    Meanwhile, everything catches on fire.

    Lots of people empathizing right now.

    Our DNS servers are cutting in and out right now.

    Things are going to be flaky for a while.

    Is "a while" going to be long enough that we might want to add some entries to the hosts file in the event of future DNS outages?

    Likewise with me, though I suppose it felt it necessary to kill my access to the site in its entirety.

    Add it for the next 24 hours until the new backup servers propagate

    I'm completly unable to access the main site using any browser, so I'm assuming it's related to this. In Firefox, I just get the error message that says "The document contains no data. The network link was interrupted while negotiating a connection. Please try again."
