Might as well get my boobies out of the way here in this here blog thingie. This is where I'll be dumping the occasional note about Fark tech stuff.

(For those that don't know, I'm the guy that fixes stuff when it breaks, and sometimes breaks stuff when it's fixed. Usually the latter.)

We also have an outage page over at for when the more serious tech problems come up (i.e. site down for hours, etc).

First actual order of nerdly business: several people have reported problems with reaching Fark via dialup connections for the last week or two. (Yeah, I know... but some people cannot get DSL, cable, or wireless.) I have a pretty good theory on this but I'm still researching this one to be sure.

[EDIT: OK, turns out my theory was wrong. So was my second one. I did finally find the problem -- looks like TSO doesn't work quite right. Ended up being a device driver bug; I reported it to Intel and they've fixed it]

Awesome post, Mike. It literally gave me shivers of excitement.

(Looking forward to all the behind-the-scenes looks.)

TSO + a specific vendor's gigabit ethernet cards + nonstandard MSS sizes on the client = random packets dropped by firewall. Yeah, that was fun to track down.
