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)

  • Back for nostalgia!

    I decided to wake Bain up and see how the game was doing. I have forgot more about the mechanics then I remember. haha

    I had to revert to an old version of Firefox to use the zealotry client. (I hate IE and Edge)

    Not seeing very many familiar "faces". : (

      It is good to see players return! Now if only the lurkers would stop lurking, and start playing! I am sure there are quite a few lurkers out there who may log into GR once or twice a day for less than one minute to see who's online, see nobody, and log right back out. Problem is, there are SO MANY seconds in a day, that they are all missing each other. Stop being sheep. Play the game and be Monsters!

                I came back for nostalgia reasons too. I was so addicted to this back in the day. Finding it a bit hard to find people to hang out and do stuff with though. How do you guys do it nowadays?

                  We play with a handful of others, using the 'call' and @g-chat a lot. "Call" is IC only, @g-chat (or @g) is OOC.

                    We should probably have a discord channel for organizing RP sessions and such a lil bit easier?

                      There used to be something like that. However, you could also just post on here approximate days and times you can be online, and coordinate this way.
