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.

- Startup Grendel (early Monday 6/24)

- Shutdown TEC (late Monday 6/24)

- Startup TEC (early Tuesday 6/25)

- Check TEC Client (9pm Tuesday 6/25)

- Lovecraft, Lazarus (Monday 8pm-10pm 7/2)

    Forum Game: Doubtful Emotes

    Something similar to this game has been posted before, but who knows when and where and whatever. So here's how it goes.

    You pick the poster above you, and then a few other characters of your choice for fun, and post. but instead of basing on how you've usually seen them act, playfully express a way that would be completely out of character for them to act. For example:

    Queen Vivienne monstrously snarls, "I am so sick of this place!!"

    Sir Vestio flippantly waves his hand, "Pfft. Commoners."

    Tiernon straightforwardly remarks, "I love rabbits!"

    Dolph appears to be manly.

    You get the picture.

    Have fun, as this is just a way to be playful with the truly opposite of our perceptions. No harm no meanness need be involved.

    Trevayne dubiously peers at a rapier, "Uuuh. Yeah. Pigsticker? I think not..."

    Brohm uproariously laughs, "And then I jumped on top of the table, took my shirt off, and swung that sucker over my head like there was no tomorrow!"

    Lady Sinvy surveys the va-va-voom fit of her gown in a mirror distastefully, "This seems a wee bit on the bold side, don't you think? Mm. I'd best cover up."

    Dame Galatea squeals at a small, black rat girlishly, "OHMYGOD! Get it away from me!"

    Queen Vivienne rolls her eyes theatrically, "And there goes Boreas just prattling on and on again about the Faith-this, the Faith-that."
    Lord Boreas proudly displays a green leaf pin on his cloak, "Conversion is a life-changing experience, Dearest."

    Victor sniffles ever-so-gently at a small, brown teddy bear, "I...I just can't handle how soft and huggable he is..."

    Merrynn cautions you prudently, "Let's just think things through for a moment, now."
    Vasilisa agrees with Merrynn, "No point in being impulsive, after all."
    Juliee rationally supports Vasilisa and Merrynn, "Perhaps look for more information in the library, too?"

    Adeline snarls unladylike at the middle landing of the Grand Bridge, "You snooty bastards can all go to hell!"

    Meoris leans roguishly against a liquor bar with his rum bottle, "I'm not doing any more work for those suckers."

    Meryl withholds her opinion.

    Pfftt. Perhaps with a tint of arrogance.

    Juliee rests her hands on her hips, "Have you considered that chocolate is overrated?"

    The painting is titled, "CM Selfie"

    Siward casually surveys you, "You're definitely a unicorn, head to toe. Lets be besties!"

    Eloren tosses twelve books on the floor one-by-one, "Crap. More crap. Seriously, who writes this stuff?! Oh, nobody cares about the LPA. Trash those ones, too."

    Ezraella puckers her lips at Josie preparatorily, "I just want to experience a girl one time."

    Lord Boreas beatboxes and grooves, "Ice, ice, baby. Shoookah! Shoookah!"

    Lord Mirshan sobs into his hands relentlessly, "I'm the ugliest man alive! I couldn't even charm a commoner without a bag over my head!"

    Merrynn seriously warns you, "Colby is an ass. There's no point in wasting your time. Stay. Away."

    Pelleas randomly snatches you, "Forget everything I've ever said. Lets live in the moment, baby."

    Rikka scoffs snootily at the area, "Adventure and intrigue is for idiots. I, for one, will quite enjoy my servant-drawn bath and the thrill that follows whilst I am re-clothed, brushed, and prettified. That's right, I like to live on the edge ... of my plushly padded sitting chair."

    Thanks for the fun tonight!

    Lord Mirshan wrinkles his nose disgustedly "Is that woman nude! Please cover that hideous sight."
    Mistress Ezraella impishly grins at Lord Mirshan with a shimmy "Hideous? I'm the best looking thing here, darling."
    Ser Adahn gazes at Mistress Ezraella "Sweet sassy molassy!"
    Mistress Heulyn cowers behind the clothing screen "What is going on?!"
    Sera Josie covers her eyes uncomfortably "Um.. I don't think I should be seeing this, Mistress."
    Doctor Jacicus sways her drink drunkenly "It's just skin a little!"
    Trinity eyes everyone distastefully "You're no better than animals."

    <.< This is what made me giggle so I decided to use it.

    NeW gUeSt EdItIoN!

    Megaera picks her nose openly.
    Ophelia offends herself with Megaera terribly, "Here, use my silken handkerchief."
    Katharin winks saucily at Keyland, "Give us a sea shanty, do. I long to dance on the table."
    Keyland abstains modestly, "No, I'd rather not sing tonight."
    Mallegra throws her arms widely, "I'LL SINGGGGG!"
    Balthazarr stuffs himself with his twelve foods privately, "So ... hungry ..."


    Adalwolf culturally fails, "Um, mein kopf ist so kalte ... ich bin going to the, ah ... the place. Aw screw it. Can I braid your hair?"

    Wendy expresses her distaste for alcoholism.

    Deputy Rolland seems upset.

    Xewe bounces through the door noisily.

    Eris screams obscenely.
