Facebook dodging questions hardcore

"Did people have to physically break into cages in order to reset servers? People rely on your company as a utility."

"Facebook really doesn't want to own the problem 100% and would be okay with regulations"

"Okay, but did your team have to physically break into cages?"

"*laughs* Well not my team, no."

Well yes, we know the marketing bimbo doesn't have datacenter access. Answer the fucking question.

So it seems the Facebook issues have to do with bad BGP (border gateway protocol) updates. Their domain is served by nameservers on their own domains (presumably using glue records), so a whois request currently fails. This also might be why every registrar says the name is available.

This isn't the first time this has happened. I swear there is at least one BGP global outage a year at this point. Securing the way IP routes over the world is a fucking joke.


If it's just public-facing DNS that is plaguing Facebook, then why is their onion address not working, too? :allears:

Facebook currently down to three nines of reliability on a quarterly basis.

The Fediverse has zero nines, as there are zero nines in 100%, which is fedi's uptime.
