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.

    For those who could nae attend:

    This eve's events was to merely express my gratitude to my friends and the Courtesy Circle guild for allowing me the opportunity serve Her Majesty and this Castle.

    However, it was once told to me that a good leader knows when to let those below him or her to shine, and I choose to do such now.

    Tis why, I gracefully step down as I choose sera Destasia to replace me as Guildleader for the Courtesy Circle.

    I have the uttmost confidence in her and hope I can help her as she has helped me.

    Allow me the first to say Congratulations to the new Guildmistress of the Courtesy Circle, sera Destasia!

        Dear Destasia,

        I cannot begin to express how pleased I am to read this announcement. There was obviously no better choice for the new leader of the Courtesy Circle and I have great faith that you will not only fulfill your duties, but go above and beyond what is expected of you.

        You are a wonderful, intelligent, hard working and devoted individual and I know that the Circle can only benefit from you taking over.

        I wish you all the best and lend you my full support in all your endeavors.

        With great affection,

                    I would just like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all whom have offered their congradulations. They are so very much appreciated and I can only hope to live up to the standards set before me.

                    I would like to take this opportunity to welcome any and all who wish to become members of the wonderful guild to start that path and attend our next meeting this coming Thor's day at 10 late bells.

                    Again, my must humblest and heartfelt thanks to all whom passed along words of congrats.
