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.

    StoryGuide Athos and StoryGuide Nonni are pleased to announce their inaugural

    StoryGuide StoryHour

    Sunday, 28 October, 4:00 P.M., Eastern
    Cathedrale in Newtown

    We plan to hold these meetings monthly, and while this may not always be the day and time, it seems like a good place to start. We have a broad range of time zones to accommodate, from the Pacific Islands to Great Britain, and while we know we cannot make the meeting time great for everyone, this seems to be a good compromise. We will see how it goes, and move forward from there.

    An outline will be published prior to each meeting. Our intent is that we will present information on some aspect of the game, whether it be background, an in-game system, or info on changes that are coming. Time will always be given for feedback and questions from the players who attend. If you are not able to attend, we will post a condensed log, or at least hit the highlights.
