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.

  • A play! A new play!

    For those that have wondered why I have not been out and about, I have been writing a play. I note that no one complained about my previous play so I considered that encouragement to continue writing them.

    The title I have settled on is "The Dover Knights of Castle Marrach."

    If you are interested in taking part and seeing if you can act, please send either myself or sera Finna a scroll.

    The parts are as follows:

    Sir Tom, Sir Dick, and Sir Larry -- The Dover Knights.
    ser Backslide -- An unsavory ser that despises the Knights.
    some random ser -- He wanders about randomly.
    a bartender/barmaid -- What it implies.
    a courier/page -- Again, what it implies.
    Lady Standpipe -- a Noble Lady.

    I might change Lady Standpipe's name as it sounds a bit too unusual to me, but I can be persuaded to keep it as it is.

    All inquiries should be sent to sera Finna or me...

    Ser Robert.
