Multiple Downtimes for All Games [Updated: Rest of Phase 1 Times]

Unfortunately, the whole computing world is facing a major crisis right now thanks to Intel and other major processors missing critical security flaws in their architecture. As a result, our ISP is doing a set of emergency updates to all of their hardware. We are getting about a day's notice on this, and we're told that they're going to need to patch each machine multiple times, which very inconveniently means multiple downtimes.

Our TEC and GR games have always been the most vulnerable to downtime, so I'm going to take the care to cleanly shutdown and restart those.

GR: Sunday, Midnight (all times are PT) DONE
TEC: Monday, 10PM

Expect the games to go down 10 minutes before the downtime, to be safe.

The other games tend to be cleaner, so I'm going to let them restart on their own:

Lovecraft: Monday, 9PM
Lazarus: Monday, 9PM
Web Site: Monday, 11PM [this will affect all logins & usage of the new TEC client]
TEC Client: Tuesday, 9PM
USERDB (site login): Tuesday night, midnight

The upgrade windows have all been less than 30 minutes to date, so you can expect games and/or services will be back up within 35-40 minutes of the hour.

I believe this is now a complete list of the first phase of updates, but there will be a second in the near future.

  • Lost your Twiki Password?

    Hello all!

    Unfortunately, staff does not have access to resetting TWiki passwords for you. In the event that that you misplace, forget, or lose your TWiki password for your username, the only way to reaccess TWiki is to create a whole new username. We suggest placing the username and password in your @remember for the particular character.

    To do this, you need to first login to the TWiki Guest account.

    Username: TWikiGuest
    Password: guest

    This is CASE SENSITIVE, so ensure you utilize the capitol letters where applicable.

    After logging in, navigate to

    Create a new username and pw, once again ensuring you save it in your @remember or somewhere else you won't lose sight of.

    After creating that username and password, you won't be able to instantly log back in using the same browser. There's no way to "logoff" the TWikiGuest account (or any account for that matter) - there used to be, but it's link has long since stopped working. Instead you will need to clear out the cookies in your browser, or open a new -INCOGNITO- browser window to access twiki fresh, with your new login and pw you created.
    • To open an incognito window in Google Chrome: shortcut CTRL-SHIFT-N
    • To open an incognito window in Pale Moon: Click on the "Pale Moon" options menu at the top left, and click "New Incognito Window"
    • To open an incognito window in Firefox, click the three horizontal line icon on the top right, and click "New Private Window"
    If there's a browser not included here, let me know and I'll figure out how to help you with it. Additionally, if you open a different browser than what you're already logged into, you can have a Twiki window open with different logins (One for Pale Moon, one for Firefox, etc)
