Multiple Downtimes for All Games [Updated: Rest of Phase 1 Times]

Unfortunately, the whole computing world is facing a major crisis right now thanks to Intel and other major processors missing critical security flaws in their architecture. As a result, our ISP is doing a set of emergency updates to all of their hardware. We are getting about a day's notice on this, and we're told that they're going to need to patch each machine multiple times, which very inconveniently means multiple downtimes.

Our TEC and GR games have always been the most vulnerable to downtime, so I'm going to take the care to cleanly shutdown and restart those.

GR: Sunday, Midnight (all times are PT) DONE
TEC: Monday, 10PM

Expect the games to go down 10 minutes before the downtime, to be safe.

The other games tend to be cleaner, so I'm going to let them restart on their own:

Lovecraft: Monday, 9PM
Lazarus: Monday, 9PM
Web Site: Monday, 11PM [this will affect all logins & usage of the new TEC client]
TEC Client: Tuesday, 9PM
USERDB (site login): Tuesday night, midnight

The upgrade windows have all been less than 30 minutes to date, so you can expect games and/or services will be back up within 35-40 minutes of the hour.

I believe this is now a complete list of the first phase of updates, but there will be a second in the near future.

    Remember Charity: Docktown

    I am starting a small program within my guild named Remember Charity. This will be focused on helping the less fortunate citizens that reside in Docktown. With this program, I will be lending my own resources to provide clothing, coin, and food when I can. I also ask that other citizens within the city do their part to aid should they be able to.

    Food: If you're in need of a meal or three for the day, please write me and I will see to it
    Clothing: If it is clothing you seek, then I'll do my best to provide it.
    Coin: Coin will be reserved housing, bills, and items that are needed in order for you to live a productive life. This is not for things that you want; I still encourage all citizens to do their best to find work.

    Speaking of work, my guild will welcome anyone who just needs a place to stand, until they decide where they wish to go. Or if you are interested in learning about languages and the career of a scholar, I would be more than pleased to assist you with that.

    How you can help: If you'd like to aid with this project I accept donations of food, coin, and clothing. If there are items such as furniture or weapons that you no longer need I will accept those too.
