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.

  • Royal Healers - Open Bells, Royal Hospital 8 late tonight, 10th day 4th moon

    The Royal Hospital will be open this evening in the Inner Bailey at eight late bells for instruction and general visit. Those needing assistance from myself of the healers in non-emergent care may visit during the open bells, and emergency visits are always available via summons through our whistle.

    Please contact me personally for formal appointments on other dates.

    All members of the healers available to attend are welcome to do so this evening.

    Doctor Dolph is changing the location of the Healers Bell tonight. It will instead be held in the Outer Infirmary this evening, to assist a patient. The same time as before at 8 Late bells.
