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.

  • Tiresias' Messaging Service

    Do you need to send someone a dream of romance, a vision of darkness, a message of hope, or a prosodic slap in the face with a kick in the shins for good measure? I'll write for you and deliver the message by courier, in person, or even recite it aloud or sing it to them. If you need a letter, prose, poetry, song or wordless melody, all you have to do is ask me.

    Hire me to send an anonymous missive, message, code or card. I'll be the hero, the demon, the teacher, the fool, the friend or whatever you need to communicate your desire.

    If you know what you want to say but can't say it yourself, I'll say it for you. If you don't know how to say what you want to say, I'll compose it for you.

    Do you know someone who can't read or write, but needs scrolls sent or read? Send them my way, and I'll read and write for them!

    My rates are reasonable and negotiable. Write to me or talk to me if you need my messaging service!
