FontAwesome fail back


Well-known member
I've seen a number of resources and even styles that are using the FontAwesome icons which I think is pretty neat and looks good.

But all of the resources or styles seem to all link back to FontAwesome for the icons. It would be neat if there was a way for it to default to the FontAwesome site and in the rare event they become unavailable or down we could fail over to a local install.

This possible?

Well I would prefer to serve from their site using:
<link href="//" rel="stylesheet">
but was just thinking in the case that their site was down the stylesheet would load locally, but now looking closer it appears to be served from a CDN which having the entire CDN network down doesn't seem all that likely.
