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 Bargain Sale

    I'm offering for sale today
    A lot of things I'll need no more;
    Come, please, and take them all away,
    I've piled them up outside my door.
    I'll make the prices low eoungh,
    And trust you, if it's trust you need;
    Here I have listed all my stuff,
    Make your selection as you read:

    A lot of prejudices which
    Have ceased to be of use to me;
    A stock of envy of the rich,
    Some slightly shopworn jealousy;
    A large supply of gloom that I
    Must not permit to clog my shelves;
    I offer bargains--who will buy?
    Name prices that will suit yourselves.

    A lot of wishes I've outgrown,
    A stock of silly old beliefs;
    Some pride I once was proud to own,
    A bulky line of dreads and griefs;
    An old assortment of ill will,
    A job lot of bad faith and doubt,
    Harsh words that have their poison still;
    Choose as you please---I'm closing out.

    I need more room for Kindliness,
    For hope and courage and good cheer,
    Take all the hatred I possess,
    The superstitions and the fear;
    A large supply of frailties I
    Shall have no use for from today;
    I offer bagains; who will buy?
    The rubbish must be cleared away!

    Ok. Even I have to admit, for poetry... that's pretty darned good.



    OOC: I just found out that wonderful poem that I was so in awe of was not written by Finna's player. It was written by a 19th century poet named S.E. Kiser and was used without giving proper credit.

      Sera Finna, I am amazed... You're words ring so true and the rhyme and meter is incredible. I had no idea you were such a wonderful poet. I hope to see more of your work sometime.
