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.

- Startup Grendel (early Monday 6/24)

- Shutdown TEC (late Monday 6/24)

- Startup TEC (early Tuesday 6/25)

- Check TEC Client (9pm Tuesday 6/25)

    Well, well. Looks like I was the lucky one and get to host this next Guild Council meeting. SO. Here we are. Do pay attention please. All guild council members are strongly encouraged to attened this meeting. Please do. We need to end this nightmare and move forward. Everyone please show up! or cast your early vote and comments via scroll.

    At this meeting the topic of leader for the City watch will be voted on. All guilds that are running for this spot must be at this meeting. Can't make it? That is fine. we will remove your guild and put it to the bottom of the list. If we have no choice then we will consider you. Send someone to represent you. Sure! but how will that look to send someone to land a contract for you? Are you a guild that might want this spot? APPLY! send a scroll. Post it on the announcement board. Make a comment on the announcement board under this topic. Tell us why you think you are worthy of it, and can enforce it.

    So. once that unpleasant task is finished. I will continue my torture on the good people and we will discuss the "Crafter Rights and Crafter Rules" that both crafters and houses and guilds must follow. This will be important for the new watch leader to observe and learn. Hence. you really need to be here if you want that spot. Now these topics of rights and rules is very annoying to get everyone to agree or make things fair. This subject might carry over to the next meeting also. But hey. Lets try to not kill each other...yet?

    Moving on. As most of you don't care for me. This can be and probably will be a very uncomfortable meeting. So I highly suggest that if your bottom bothers you from over use. Bring a cushion to rest it on please. I won't stop so you can rub it.

    With how much this pains me. This will be an open meeting. All houses are encouraged to have their representative attend this meeting as votes and topics will directly effect your house. Guilds! show up. If you want to hear how all this plays out. Be here. We have benches off to the side just for observers. Use them please. And do mind your manors. Observe all rules. Read the announcement board before you enter the chambers.

    Because this will be no different then claws shredding the hide off your back. I strongly advise all attendee's to bring with them what ever type of rotting food juice that pleases your pallet. I will bring a barrel of rum for anyone to enjoy. I know this is not the drink of choice for most. So bring your own. It's ok. But be kind. Only drink for yourself. If you get wasted. You will be ejected from the meeting. And if I see you loading your bag down with a dozen drinks and hoarding the barrel. I will shoot you. The barrel will be free for attending people only. You can not take one for joe down the hall.

    Next issue to talk about. If you have or have access to armor...mainly a helmet or shield. I advise everyone bring one or both of those. Many of you may have noticed. I'm missing fingers on my right hand. Matter of fact, I only have 2 fingers. And I will have the gavel in that hand. There is a 90% chance. That gavel will be thrown across the room and cause bodily harm. Now a good person would apologize before hand should that happen. But I will not. As I will most likely be pleased with the outcome of what it hits. have been warned. -Attend at your own risk!-

    This meeting will take place on the 11th day of Night. 7 late bells. (Tuesday December 11th 7pm eastern standard time)

    until then, Ta!

              ! question: Slave Duties: Was it about duties of a slave of duties (tax) for importing one?
