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.

    I still can't believe last night happened.

    The art show was such a success I just can't deal with it! We had ten or eleven very charitable
    folks there at the peak. Good, fun, happy, gracious people. We even had some in costume!
    By the end of the night every piece of art had been purchased, including a very intimidating statue
    donated by Christian of
    Petite Pommes and a very spooky tapestry (which now hangs in my room)
    donated by Lamhirh of Sew We Can Sew.

    Once everyone had ample time to sit around and talk with one another and inspect the art
    at their own pace we started the auctions! We had whiskey donated by the Bisclavret,
    strawberry wine donated by Rem and the Gardener's Guild, and a wide variety of items
    donated by Roofus and my own guild The Black and MacDubglass Misfit Company.
    Every item sold with some very intense bidding wars happening on some of them
    I played auctioneer and it was -very- fun.

    At the end of he night, after everything was said and done, I myself walked away with a nice
    little chunk of denarii. Said chunked was DWARFED by what we raised for the city. The
    orphanage has 440 denarii coming their way and the council is getting the hefty sum of 2545
    denarii coming their way! A sum that will be put into Docktown and Docktown alone.


    Never in my wildest dreams did I think the event would go so well. I owe many thanks
    to all who attended, made donations, spread the word, and bought the work of this city's
    artists. This is the first event of many, I assure you. If you were unable to come this
    time don't worry. The next event will be a different theme and at a different time. I will make sure
    that each event will be unique and accessible by all that it can be.

    Thank you people of Triskellian. You have made me one very happy otter.

    have a nice nightlight to keep the darkness at bay."
