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.

    The Awakeners would like to welcome you to join our new weekly social in the Sunset Room on Frey's at 7 late. We will be serving drinks and snacks.

    All are welcome to bring game ideas, conversation topics and things they would like to share with others. Have a picture you finished painting, or you wrote a poem you would like to share? It's the perfect time to show off your work!

    All newly awakened and interested denizen are welcome to join us in the Sunset Room with questions. Please do not be afraid to ask.

    The social will run until interest wanes. The weekly social will run every Frey's at 7 late unless otherwise noted due to current events or other bells. If someone is wanting to hold a bell or social afterwards that we can migrate to when we are finished, please send me a scroll so I can make an announcement.

    Thank you to everyone for making the realm a wonderful place to be!
