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.

    9th month, 24th day, Year Eight of the Recent Awakenings

    The Courtesy Circle

    To the Denizenry of Her Majesty's Castle Marrach;
    In accordance to the will of the Lord Chamberlain, and in upholding the duties charged to me as a Chronicler, I hereby submit an account of The Courtesy Circle

    The purpose of the Courtesy Circle is to promote courtesy, manners, etiquette, respect, well-being and consideration in and throughout the castle through weekly lectures and meetings. The Courtesy Circle also have many ongoing projects, including the Courteous Guest of the New Moon, Social Teas and Etiquette Classes.

    The Courtesy Circles patrons are Acolyte Isaria, sera Chasity and Lady Amoret. The present leaders are Guildmistress Ezraella and Guildmistress Assistants Anita and Fate Alaria. The Members are sers Allain, Jeffery and Varick and seras Fawen, Carine, Camellia, Jerisa and Mieko. Members can be easily recognized by the simple wooden rings they wear.

    To become a member any denizen should send a missive to either the Guildmistress or the Guildmistress Assistant's. An Interview would then be required as well as three letters of recommendations from upstanding denizens. Upon acceptance, one is required to take an oath.

    This chronicle will be subject to changes and corrections, as I humbly ask that the readers indicate to me through their discretion any falsehood I may have mistakenly communicated.

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