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.

  • The Hairstylists' Circle

    Twenty-First day, Ninth Moon
    Year Seven of the Recent Awakenings,
    And updated by the Office hence,

    In accordance to the will of the Lord Chamberlain, and in upholding the duties charged to us as Chroniclers, we hereby submit an account of
    The Hairstylists' Circle.

    In the area found beneath the Dining Hall in the Outer Bailey is the Hairstylists' Salon, a cozy, warm room that always smells faintly of hair soaps, dyes and conditioners. This room is home to the Hairstylists' Circle. The stylists are one of the groups in the Castle that are devoted to serving the denizenry, in this case by making sure their hair looks its best, and is styled appropriately for special events.

    The current leader of the Hairstylists Circle is sera Ezraella, assisted by sera Yolanda.

    The stylists endeavor to hold fashion shows from time to time. At the last show, the stylists gifted Her Majesty with a set of styling tools shaped in symbols of the four elements. Anyone with interest can contact the lead stylist, who then conducts an interview with the potential stylist, and, if she accepts them as a student, assigns them a teacher.

    This chronicle will be subject to changes and corrections, as we humbly ask that readers indicate to us through their discretion any falsehood we may have mistakenly communicated. It is by means of the conservation of the Past that we continue to serve Her Majesty and give substance to those that follow.

    In service to Her Majesty Queen Vivienne, the Lord Chamberlain, the Chronicler's Office, and the Denizenry of our Gracious Queen's Realm;
