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.

    I managed to destroy some crucial part of my phone screen, so between that and being dragged away to the coldest parts of Melbourne in the middle of winter this weekend with the inlaws, there'll be no Juliee until Monday-ish.

    Sorry for anyone who needs her.

    For a moment, 3 of us panicked.
    "In our age there is no such thing as ‘keeping out of politics.’ All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia."

    "Although many of us consider ourselves forward-thinkers, we still cling tenaciously to the old values of the system."

          I don't know how I'll survive this. :/

            It's freezing, but we got to cuddle some wallabies, and tickle a platypus today.

            Plus wine. Lots and lots and lots of wine.

              Wine makes most of the rest survivable.
