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.

    Thank you, Flea!

    I'd like to give a shout-out to StoryTrainee (now StoryPlotter...congratulations!) Flea for getting Harvest out of the "trap" that exists on the road to and from the Reservoir. To simulate travel time, the "rooms" that comprise the road are on a timer, and only let you pass on into the next room after X number of minutes. The room that Harvest was in was badly broken, and she couldn't progress in either direction. Worse, the room was sticky, and she could only log back on into that room.

    It looked like she was going to be in for the duration, but Flea showed up and got her back to her dorm room.

    All hail the mighty Flea!
