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.

  • Goodbye for now ICO

    Hey all! So I know I've not had Wynter as active as she used to be, and I've tried to get involved in the game again by being more active in the Rinaldi, but it seems that certain powers block any attempt to get involved or just don't respond IC. With all the control of the Rinaldi resting on one person, there's no movement with the house and its dead, which is sad because any offer to help out it shot down, ignored or met with IC 'tude. I know there are other avenues for Wynter to pursue, but I'm pretty much burned and unwilling at this time to try and put in any more effort when its clearly not wanted.

    That said, Wynter is not being deleted. I'm going to take a long(er) break from ICO and I hope this ooc knowledge will not be used ICly against myself and Wynter if I do decide to return.

    Staci, Morven, Orla, Chiara, Miriam, and Kino, thank you for all the RP you've provided to me over the past few months, you all are great players and are amazingly inclusive. Staff, you guys are seriously awesome and I don't think there is a better staff out there.

    I wish ICO all the best.

        I am sad to see you leave. Have you maybe considered changing the direction of your story arc? Perhaps have her leave the Rin and head to another house to start business there. You will be missed. <3

          I just saw this message. I am sorry to see it. The Rinaldi were always lucky to have you. But I understand (I think, not knowing the exact situation). Getting ANYTHING done is always hard and inactivity is usually the best course in-game. It can be so draining.

          I wish you the very best, always, and know that you will be a great contribution to any other Skotos games you are playing.

            I feel like issues shouldn’t really be posted on here when they involve another player oocly. Wouldn’t it be more appropriate to assist to staff?
