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.

  • Late night Winterizms - Also, for Brook to sing later :

    You giggle in Northern, "Oh, oh! Okay! Snowdrops on iceroses, and winter-whiskers on frozen kittens!"

    Josie stands up laughingly and says in Northern, "Dark frosty kettles and warm woolen mittens. Cold paper packages tied up with strings .. these are a few of our wintry things."

    You say in Northern, "Snowstrings!"

    Josie amends her words in Northern, "Snow-strings"

    Josie croons in Northern, "When the fox bites, when the freeze stings .. now I'm going to beeed .."

    Josie wanders to the eastern ascending stairs in Northern, "Where I can dream of my favorite things in my silly little head"

    • (In the recovery room in the Hospital)

      A freckled guard arrives through a hallway door.

      You take an iolite folder from your small black velveteen bag.

      You consult your iolite folder.

      A freckled guard moves from a hallway door to a large privacy curtain to the privy.
      A freckled guard leaves through a large privacy curtain to the privy.

      You tell Lord Dolph, "I am going to Chambers now to see about a servant badge. If they are open..."

      You glance at a large privacy curtain to the privy.

      You move from Lord Dolph to a large privacy curtain to the privy.
      You close a large privacy curtain to the privy.

      Lord Dolph nods to you then.

      You return to Lord Dolph.

          Halvard pensively lowers his gaze.
          As Adeline's lit shimmering silver lantern burns, the subtle scent of oranges and cloves teases your senses.
          You beckon to Josie aside.
          You whisper Josie, "**omitted for finding out in game if possible**."
