Freak U is suffering a DDoS attack. It's getting late for our head admin, so if they're still at it tomorrow, she'll fix it then.

Site's going down for a little while to perform some maintenance work on the hard drive.

We're aware that freak university is down right now. The exact issue is unknown and out of our hands, so we've reached out to our hosting provider for support.

At this time there is no cause for concern. The most likely explanation is a denial of service attack.

We're working on setting up a code hosting server, for members and for us. Which address do you prefer?

Outbound federation is currently down due to some kind of networking issue. We've opened a support ticket with our host and will keep you posted.

One of our admins fucked up so the site's down till she fixes it

Added phenomenal.masto.host to our X-Clacks-Overhead header. Thanks to @comrade_lecter for the reminder.

Our head admin is still not really in a position to fix the site, but we have a pretty good idea of what to do.

In the meantime, text posts still work here, and if your app is crashing loading our site, you can use the website on your phone or PC.

The site is back, but uploading images is currently impossible. Old images continue to work. We're working on it now.

OK, we're in the process of ordering 256 GB of additional storage and will migrate to it as soon as we're able to.

Back down again as we scrounge up some cash for a disk space upgrade. We'll keep you posted.

^ posts that aged pretty well

We've cleared some more disk space, are working on preventing logs from taking up like 8 GB (lol), and will buy some more. School's back in session

Looks like we need more disk space. Growing pains are good! If that is the case, we'll buy some more soon.
