Multiple Downtimes for All Games [Updated: Rest of Phase 1 Times]

Unfortunately, the whole computing world is facing a major crisis right now thanks to Intel and other major processors missing critical security flaws in their architecture. As a result, our ISP is doing a set of emergency updates to all of their hardware. We are getting about a day's notice on this, and we're told that they're going to need to patch each machine multiple times, which very inconveniently means multiple downtimes.

Our TEC and GR games have always been the most vulnerable to downtime, so I'm going to take the care to cleanly shutdown and restart those.

GR: Sunday, Midnight (all times are PT) DONE
TEC: Monday, 10PM

Expect the games to go down 10 minutes before the downtime, to be safe.

The other games tend to be cleaner, so I'm going to let them restart on their own:

Lovecraft: Monday, 9PM
Lazarus: Monday, 9PM
Web Site: Monday, 11PM [this will affect all logins & usage of the new TEC client]
TEC Client: Tuesday, 9PM
USERDB (site login): Tuesday night, midnight

The upgrade windows have all been less than 30 minutes to date, so you can expect games and/or services will be back up within 35-40 minutes of the hour.

I believe this is now a complete list of the first phase of updates, but there will be a second in the near future.

    It seems activity has dwindled again. Must be that time of year and time for me to once again declare: I miss you guys!

      I miss y'all too!

      Guess I'm going to have to make a real effort to be around, if only to keep Evan from crying.

              Oh Beckers has always said Phinny is an old bad.

              incidentally, Beckers is: Three hundred twenty-four weeks and five days old.

              She's not a spring chicken either

                Incidentally, Rayne is three hundred and fifty-nine weeks old today!

                I keep thinking about coming back, but whenever I pop my head in, the whole place is dead. Guess there's no room for a GMT old-timer...

                Miss y'all.

                  I'm around less GMT-time because of my job, and even less for the other time zones!

                  Also, Ree is four hundred seven weeks and three days old. Eep
