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)

    The following were online yesterday (In addition to whatever alts they were switching between)

    Merihem the Afreet, Smarmy the Giant, Netze the Pharaoh Mummy, Blue the Dracolich, Anknut the Bugbear. In the past month or so I have also seen Kega the Minotaur, and Draggy the Cerebus. I have not listed known alts.

      I was around pretty consistently for a month and a half, mostly in off-hours due to time zones, but I've been consumed by revisiting a different MUD. I'll always come back to GR but as long as I have to pay money to be able to play both my main and my alt in an otherwise dead game, I don't see myself being online all that much. There's just not a whole lot of reason to play a social like Marx. If I could access Rykon I'd definitely play more because at least with a WM there's a sense of progression.

          Lurking indeed seems to be the order of the day... but I am around every so often with a character or two. Don't keep the account active but every so often, I'll resubscribe for a month on a lark. Cyrria is my free character so I play her more often than the rest.

            I'm back after a long time away myself. I am glad to see in the past few weeks there have been a number of monsters around just like Smarmy listed. Atm, I am playing Anknut and Urgraz. Hope to see more people around.

              I'm still around a little bit. I quit for a long time, but I've come back a little here and there. I miss the old fane battles with Netze, Tarvok, Ark, Jinn, Mythras, Sarkis.

                Me too. Solution: All you lurkers, get off the forums and back into the game!

                  Lurking. Work schedule is crazy, and I'm applying to grad school, so I don't anticipate free time in my near future either. Laptop is broken, and playing on the phone is possible but clunky (unless they've implemented a way to "up, enter" on the mobile client recently).

                        Might be worth playing sometimes if you all stop lurking too

                          I'd play, but I can't get on the game with any client.

                            What clients have you tried?
                            Also, anyone wanting to use FireFox on a regular computer, the current version of FireFox won't work. You will have to download a previous version (and then immediately turn off the udates for it).

                            Firefox Setup 56.0.2.exe [ https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/...2/win64/en-US/ ]

                            Once you download it, IMMEDIATELY go to it's tools and TURN OFF updates, or it will update itself within a minute or two. Then download the Zealotry Add-on [ http://www.skotos.net/Zealotry/ ].
                            You're up and playing with us!
