I think it's just you. Up for me and IRC has been rather busy with notifications of commits and pull request comments. http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/github.com

Works For Me (TM) - haven't had problems with GitHub at all today. Also, this is useful for cases like this one: http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/github.com -- - Alex

The auto tester is also a pretty good canary for github's availability. I can tell through it when github is suffering before github's status pages have been updated a lot of the time.

Works for me. Are you behind a firewall? T -- English is useful because it is a mess. Since English is a mess, it maps well onto the problem space, which is also a mess, which we call reality. Similarly, Perl was designed to be a mess, though in the nicests of all possible ways. -- Larry Wall

My router has one built-in, but I haven't blocked any sites with it, certainly not github. Haven't even changed any settings on it lately. Although I'd have no idea what kind of crazy fucking shit my ISP might be pulling (Timer Warner - yea, they're not exactly known for basic competence.) The HTTP request goes out to them and then...the connection just sits there indefinitely...doing...nothing. Nothing gets sent back, the connection doesn't close. Everything else seems to work fine...Jusus christ...those stupid goddamn motherfuckers turned they're goddam "send him *our* page for every unmatched DNS request" bullshit back on, after I've already shut the fucking thing off twice in the last few years. Why won't these shitwads just fucking die already. Adelphia's leadership gets hauled off to jail, ok, fine, but then these Time Warner fuckwads are allowed to live and participate in society. Fuck, if I had my way anyone with an IQ below 100 would be institutionalized, and all middle and upper managers would be shot in the balls, then in the face. In any case it woudn't surprise me if this asinine bullshit is somehow what's causing the problem. Fuck Time Warner, and I hope all their kids get hepatitis and die.

And, nope, that still doesn't solve it, although I wouldn't doubt that Time Warner fucked it up some other way.

It might be a stale DNS entry perhaps? Try the IP address directly: 207.97.227.239

Maybe github.com got blacklisted for basic competence? :-P

Ah the infamous DNS ad pages. Are you sure you aren't accidentally blocking github.com by blocking those pages? :-) I used to be overzealous in blocking IPs... used to have entire /8 blocks in my iptables drop list, collateral damage be damned. Until one day I put one too many /8 entries in there and things started breaking horribly. :-P T -- "The number you have dialed is imaginary. Please rotate your phone 90 degrees and try again."

(note the http vs https below) This: http://207.97.227.239 Works, but just redirects me to http://help.github.com And this: https://207.97.227.239 Does not work. Interestingly, this: https://help.github.com/ Just simply fails to connect. Which is NOT the same problem I've been (and still am) getting with https://github.com which is: It connects and the request is sent, but then nothing gets sent back and the connection stays open indefinitely. And yea, tried on multiple browsers, and with JS on (not that JS would matter if there's no http responce). Yesterday, I checked status.github.com (which worked) and didn't see any reports, so I did what it said an emailed their support. Still waiting for a responce. I think GitHub just hates me. I've always been having (other) problems with github, so I'm pretty vocal about github sucking and bitbucket being better (though still not ideal). Maybe GitHub's just retaliating ;)

Heh :) (Very, very, very, very, very BASIC competence, IMO)

I'm not actually blocking them on my end, I'm just using my ISP's opt-out (*NOTHING* should EVER be "opt-out", only "opt-in". "Opt-out" is nothing more than rationalization for acting grossly unethical. "Out-outs" should involve a manditory jail sentence (in a "federal rape-me-in-the-ass prison"). And of course, making such things "no choice" instead of "opt-in" should involve a larger sentence. And I geniunely mean that.).

Hah! So it probably *is* Time Warner screwing it up: ------------------------------------------------ From: Tekkub (GitHub Staff) Subject: Can't get HTTP response, no notice on status.github.com Do you have Time Warner cable by chance? We've had a number of reports from users unable to connect from their network. When we have more details from them we'll post them to https://status.github.com/ ------------------------------------------------
