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.

  • Natura Balanus Meeting: 10 LB Sun's

    There will be a meeting of Natura Balanus this coming Sun's at 10 LB in the cupola.

    The topic will primarily be on current events and how the Faith can aid the Keep at this time.

    Where is the cupola?

      [replies on a new scroll and pins directly beneath the question]

      At the Outer Bailey Courtyard head toward the green arch. Go up one flight of stairs. Walk the Solitary passageway until you reach the water barrel. There is a hallway that leads off of the Solitary passageway. That hallway leads to the cupola,

      Just for future reference, could you please add your name to anything you put on the board? It's helpful. Right now, I am trying to figure out who you are so I can help you find your way around.

        Sera Taite,

        The green arch is east, heading towards the bridge landing and Inner Bailey. That is the wrong direction.

        Unsigned ser or sera,

        If you want to go to the cupola, you would wish to go towards the tower entrance nestled in the south of the courtyard, which would be on your right if you are coming to the courtyard from the dining hall. The rest of sera Taites instructions are correct.

          I apologize for my mistake. I got the exits mixed up as I was trying to give instructions by memory. Thank you for the correction.
