Reboots: Marrach, Lazarus, Lovecraft, Auth Server on Thursday, Friday [Complete]
On Thursday morning at 11am PT, I will be taking down the following games to upgrade them:
Then, on Friday morning at 11am PT I will be taking down our authentication machine:
Apologies for the short notice, but it's in response to a security bulletin related to the virtual machine software that these games and servers are on. We've already upgraded the rest of our machines to a new virtual machine which has thus far been less prone to security problems, and we're taking the opportunity to update these final machines in advance of a forced reboot over the weekend.
Each upgrade timeframe is expected to be an hour or less. I expect to be able to do memory upgrades for these machines at the same time.
Edit: Thursday morning upgrades for Lazarus, Lovecraft, and Marrach are now complete. The machines have also been upgraded from 2G of memory to 4G.
Edit: Friday morning upgrade now done as well, complete with upgrade of user authentication machine.

All SkotOS Maps Updated; Please Report Bugs
In the last several days I've updated the way that all the game maps are stored for Ironclaw, Lazarus, Lovecraft, and Marrach, to make it possible for our admins and GMs to add new maps and map fragments to our games. Everything is working from my browsing, but I've heard a few reports of missing maps in Marrach (which may or may not have predated the update).
If any maps seem to have gone missing in those four SkotOS games, please let me know. If you see a broken map or map fragment where the image isn't showing up:
1. Open the image in a new tab (usually by right-clicking and choosing this option from a menu)
2. Copy the URL of the image from the URL bar
3. Email that URL to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
