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.

GENESIS:

- Shutdown Grendel (late Sunday 6/23)

- 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)

- Shutdown TEC-Test (late Thursday 6/27)

- Startup TEC-Test (Friday 6/28)


SKOTOS:

- Marrach (Monday early morning 6/24)

- Ironclaw (Monday 10pm-midnight 6/24)

- Lovecraft, Lazarus (Monday 8pm-10pm 7/2)


MAIN SITE:

- UserDB (Monday 10pm-midnight 6/24)

- Web (Sunday 9pm-11pm 6/30)

    Trail of Cthulhu RPG

    I know I mentioned this in the older forum, but a new take on Cthulhu mythos was released last year in the form of Trail of Cthulhu. There's a supplement coming out for it next month, Shadows over Filmland, which essentially sets the mythos in a 30s film (or that's the premise). It's not out, but there is an excerpt of it available now, found here (pdf file). Interestingly most of the excerpt is a comparison between HPL's stories and many horror film tropes (vampires, werewolves, haunted houses, etc.) It's actually a fairly good read. I think it might be a good place to start if you wanted to create an horror plot and put an HPL stamp on it. Want to do a story resembling traditional Mummy stories, well here's a list of HPL stories which cover the immortal monster-magus themes of the Mummy.

    I'll post more when the actual book is out...
