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.

  • Reawakenings

    Written the 12th day of the first moon, 19YRA

    To all denizen who have fallen asleep for moons to years and have waken up.

    In an effort to help people who have awakened after sleeping, I have come up with the idea of making a gift bag for those that have reawakened.

    It's a good idea, and I could make it work, but I am going to need a little more information from those that have had that experience.

    If you could send me a scroll about your experience, it would help with the advancement of this project. Included, I would also like you to add things you felt you needed when you woke. Examples of this would be a bath or clothing. I know it's a big adjustment trying to learn what you missed and to try to relearn things you have forgotten. I would like to make an attempt to make things easier for future reawakenings.

    If someone could help, it would greatly be appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Taite Morrison - Awakener
