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.

  • 'Tis A Little Journey

    'Tis a little journey
    This we walk;
    Hardly time for murmurs---
    Time for talk.

    Yet we learn to quarrel
    And to hate;
    Afterward regret it
    Whan too late.

    Now and then 'tis sunshine--
    Sometimes dark;
    Sometimes care and sorrow
    Leave their mark.

    Yet we walk the pathway
    Side by side;
    Where so many others
    Lived and dead.

    We can see the moral,
    Yet we walk not always
    Hand in hand.

    Why must there be hatred?
    Greed and strife?
    Do we need such shadows
    Here in life?
