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.

    Hi folks,

    Well, as a lot of you know my account expired tonight and I'll be taking a break from Marrach. It's been exactly two years since Zylle first wandered out of her room and I've so enjoyed playing her and creating a story with all of you. But right now I need to find a less addictive hobby, one where I don't sit down at the computer just to look up and realize five hours have passed. So I'm off, for a while at least. I'll miss all the fun and the friends! Thanks so much to everyone for two years of great entertainment, lots of laughter, and occasional tears. Good times!

    Take care,

    *BIG HUGS!!!*!!!

    Have fun with that "real life" thing.

    Come back when you're ready. I know breaks are often needed, and have taken a few myself over the years.

    The castle will be here when you get back. (Hopefully.)

      *hugs you tightly*

        Cya Zylle/Sara. You will definitely be missed. The Fashion Disasters Luncheon will always be fond memory.

          *cries and weeps too*

          Missed you from the day I heard . Take really good care of yourself and focus on the most important things in life. Lots of hugs and kisses and I hope to see Zylle whenever and if you return.

              I completely understand the need for a break. Enjoy the real world! It was a pleasure playing with you, and maybe see you around again soon. Take care of yourself!
