14:30 mtholder towodo , jimallman: is api.opentreeoflife.org down for you?
14:32 mtholder could be my connection... lots of things are slow for me now.
14:33 towodo darnit…
14:34 mtholder dns?
14:34 towodo looks like a dns problem, for me at least
14:34 mtholder devapi, too
14:35 towodo yep
14:35 mtholder yes. looks like dns for me, too.
14:35 towodo doesn’t work with dns = 8.8.8.8 either… so not an isp issue
14:36 jimallman same here, dig shows now ANSWER section for tree.opentreeoflife.org or api.opentreeoflife.org
14:36 jimallman no ANSWER section
14:36 towodo or opentreeoflife.org
14:37 towodo looks like namecheap is screwing us
14:37 towodo or else PIR (.org)
14:37 towodo the latter is unlikely
14:37 jimallman has anyone tinkered with the DNS zone file lately? (unlikely, i know)
14:37 towodo our NS is DNS1.REGISTRAR-SERVERS.COM
14:38 towodo (and DNS2, etc)
14:38 jimallman http://status.namecheap.com/
14:38 jimallman looks like Namecheap is under attack.
14:38 towodo yep
14:38 towodo dig @DNS1.REGISTRAR-SERVERS.COM opentreeoflife.org
14:39 towodo they’ve been under attack before.
14:39 towodo they shored up their anti-DDNS a few months ago
14:39 towodo anyhow the above ‘dig’ fails.
14:39 pmidford2 joined #opentreeoflife
14:39 towodo they do updates on twitter… I’ll look
14:40 towodo hmm. nothing on twitter
14:40 kcranstn joined #opentreeoflife
14:41 mtholder services were working for me a few hours ago, so it has not been down too long.
14:41 kcranstn I am here (but also running a workshop)
14:41 towodo tweeted them
14:43 kcranstn their twitter stream seems to indicate that we aren’t the only ones
14:44 towodo am I looking at the wrong stream? @namecheap ?
14:44 mtholder you have to look at the replies
14:44 mtholder (on their twitter stream)
14:44 mtholder "tweets & replies" part of their profile.
14:45 towodo oh…  that’s very screwy, I thought if you looked at “tweets” you would see their tweets
14:45 towodo silly me
14:45 mtholder new interface - thanks twitter
14:45 jimallman yeah, thanks for the hint mtholder
14:45 kcranstn tweeted
14:46 mtholder replies have always been hidden (unless you follow both folks in the convo or the tweet starts with something other than @)
14:46 jimallman yes, the oddness is that they don’t feel the need to tweet a major outage
14:47 towodo I guess I should do as they suggest and switch over to their v1 dns
14:48 towodo it’s odd that they don’t use the same name server as their customers… what does that say…
14:49 towodo hmm… can’t log in… big surprise
14:51 towodo success.  they say there will be a delay
14:51 towodo we really ought to have a backup dns…
14:52 towodo I guess we could run bind on ot10
14:53 towodo ot10 ping works.  ot20 resolves but request times out.
14:53 towodo ssh ot20 works
14:53 towodo http://api.opentreeoflife.org/  works. we’re back in business
14:56 kcranstn w00t!
14:57 mtholder hmm. still not very happy over here in europe - loading in browser fails. ssh succeeds (slowly).
14:58 kcranstn I can’t load tree.opentreeoflife.org
14:58 towodo ssh works...
14:59 towodo http worked for me after a pause
15:00 towodo oh.  but no tree.
15:00 towodo could be tree (ot14) has the old api ns value cached
15:03 towodo installing ‘dig’ on ot14…
15:06 mtholder I've got to run. Do we have a call later?
15:06 kcranstn I can’t make a call
15:06 towodo I sent email to karen & stephen asking if it was a research hangout
15:06 towodo no answer from stephen
15:06 towodo do you want to have a hangout? I haven’t prepared an agenda
15:07 towodo there’s lots of peyotl activity, might be worth talking about that
15:07 mtholder it does not matter much to me. I'm happy to meet. I've got to run to a post office now. I'll check the IRC logs later for a decision.
15:13 towodo I think TTL for ot20.opentreeoflife.org (= api) is 1/2 hour.  that would mean the webapp should start working around 10:23 EST
15:14 towodo cached in amazon’s NS… nothing to do
15:14 kcranstn ok
15:15 towodo I mean I could redirect the local dns config to a different name server, but that would probably take me 10 minutes
15:15 towodo or more
15:15 kcranstn I think that’s fine
15:24 pmidford2 joined #opentreeoflife
15:28 towodo hmm… ot20 lookup on ot14 still failing
15:28 towodo let me check the ttl
15:31 towodo yuck.  can’t see the ttl that would have been in effect when amazon cached it
15:41 towodo ttl now is 1800 = 1/2 hour
15:41 towodo ah! we’re back, can see tree
