Downtimes: June 24 - July 2nd

We've got another batch of shutdowns coming in late June and early July, so that the machines can be repaired for the newest bug, the ZombieLoad CPU bug.

In general, the Genesis games (Grendel, TEC, TEC-Test) all have reboots scheduled for the absolute middle of the night, so I'll be taking each down the previous evening at midnight and bringing them back up the next morning at 9am.

The SkotOS games have always been more robust about reboots, so we'll let them reboot on their own, though there's some chance for an ~2 hour data loss. In any case, I'll be checking them after the 2-hour window when I can, though Marrach has a middle-of-the-night reboot, so that'll be the next morning.

The UserDB and Web reboots will cause some downtime for the entire site, but again they will hopefully come up cleanly.

GENESIS:

- Shutdown Grendel (late Sunday 6/23)

- Startup Grendel (early Monday 6/24)

- Shutdown TEC (late Monday 6/24)

- Startup TEC (early Tuesday 6/25)

- Check TEC Client (9pm Tuesday 6/25)

- Shutdown TEC-Test (late Thursday 6/27)

- Startup TEC-Test (Friday 6/28)


SKOTOS:

- Marrach (Monday early morning 6/24)

- Ironclaw (Monday 10pm-midnight 6/24)

- Lovecraft, Lazarus (Monday 8pm-10pm 7/2)


MAIN SITE:

- UserDB (Monday 10pm-midnight 6/24)

- Web (Sunday 9pm-11pm 6/30)

  • Absence Explanation

    A few of you know I have been pretty ill lately. On top of that, my mother has been in and out of the hospital as well. I am taking a break from pretty much everythibg for the next couple of weeks, so that I can take care of her, ontop of my job and three kids. All apologies to Charmiam, the Clothiers, and the umpteen billion people getting lessons from Lorelei. I hope to be back in the next 2-3 weeks. If you need me, find me here or whatever other contact points you may have for me. Iíll be checking in occaisionally, but I wonít have the time or energy for any meaningful RP. Much Love, Lorelei's Handler

      Is any chance you could log in to grab a scroll from Charmiam?

        Unless a scroll needs to be checked...in a game.

          Pfft! We're supposed to be hostile in-game, not out of it. :-)

            I wouldn't call pointing out that someone is being inconsiderate of what a player is going through IRL being "hostile".

            Or maybe you felt like it was because you realized how insensitive you were being? Idk.

              Why are we arguing? The OP clearly states if you need her you can reach her here, and if she can get IC she will. She also said 2-3 weeks, which falls into the timeline where charmiam's p posted.

              The only one one I see being insensitive here is you.

                She said she "HOPES TO BE BACK in 2-3 weeks". The insensitivity comes from the fact that if she's not on yet, she's not ready to be on yet so IG scrolls can wait. Just because the rest of us can be patient and suggest other people do the same, does not translate into us being insensitive.

                  I can quote too:

                    Congrats. But clearly I need to dumb down my point even more....if RL always comes first like the player I originally quoted claimed. Then that should be the end of it and the player will get the scroll when they come back, and a "Can you step away from your sick family/work to answer a scroll for me" can wait until that time. Clear?

                    "If you need me" implies, "If there is an emergency that requires immediate attention" and...again..because this is a game...there never will be a scenario like that.

                      That's enough. Both sides of the argument have been made. If Lorelei's P is able, she will log in, if not, then it's known as to why.
