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)

  • A little step for the tomboy and a big leap for the Poptart.

    (*glances at the subject and grumbles* See Atama, your insanity is starting to mentally trouble me... )

    Greetings fellow Marrachians, adopted family, mortal enemies, et cetera.

    You've probably all seen Carmen's post a few days ago... Well, I'm posting something similar now... I too will be absent from the game for a week or two; I'm moving out of town because of college (yay!) and I'm guessing I'll need a couple of days to get adjusted to my new surroundings, to college life in general and stuff.

    I know many of you told me I'll probably have more free time than I used to in high school. It might be true. Well, no matter what, I am still unsure how much my gaming time will be affected. It all depends on the opening hours of the computer labs, especially since that might be the only place for me to get free internet access. In other words, I am not leaving the game (well, hopefully, I won't have to), but I might not be there as often as I used to.

    One thing is for sure, I'm going to miss a big bunch of you. Don't hesitate to send me PMs or emails or scrolls in game if you have questions, or only if you want to say hi. I'll try answering as soon as possible. For those who had to speak to Umi (including meetings, plots Umi is taking part in, practices, etc.), I am sorry I will not be as much available as I wished I was... I don't really have an IC reason either... But you know the rule in CM; real life comes first.

    So until my return, have fun in your roleplaying and don't spread too many rumors about my little sword-wielding maniac's disappearance (*looks pointedly at Atama* No saying she's got abducted by little green men from Uranus or something like that, ok?)... she'll most likely get pissed at you if you do.

    See you soon!
    Big hugs,
    Gaby

    I'd like you to know that I wipe regularly, and no longer have this problem.

          AHHHHHH!

          Umi??? You're older than me? *runs, leaps, dives behind the nearest guard*

          Now I have to start acting weirder! Maybe Atama's rubbing off on you, you're rubbing off on me... when we get a big enough group, we can all pin every strange tendancy on him.

          Ack, cough hack... Tooooooo late. Even I get wierd...

            Gaby,
            I sure am going to miss you. I'll make sure we spread lots of rumors about you while you are gone, and I will email you about them to keep you updated Good luck in school and take care. See you when you have time.


            *hugs* and lots of support

                  Good luck, and here's hoping you have a great college life. Be careful about those vicious sorority girls, through.

                    Best of luck!!

                    Hey Umi, good luck hun!!!! And your right, real life comes first...though after hearing, and reading some of the arguements from over Atama's shoulder, I think that carries over into RL, so you better be back

                    Take your time, get adjusted and hurry back to us!

                      college....?

                      Hey Umi, just remember this saying....I don't know where I heard it, but I love it dearly.

                      There's a time and place for everything, and it's called college.

                      I hope that you don't have to leave the game, my characters haven't had much chance to interract with Umichan, and I would love the chance to rp more with her. Have fun, but not too much, lest you forget about the imaginary castle, atop the imaginary Mount Ardan, filled with imaginary people. Ya know, this would be a great case study for my Ph.D in psychology.

                        Umi,

                            I seem to recall that quote being from the Simpsons. Though I can't be sure... so please completely disregard this post. Thank you.
