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.


- 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)


- Marrach (Monday early morning 6/24)

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

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


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

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

    I see you left some grunts and warriors in the entrance. Unfortunately, I saw this AFTER I had teleported a large group of uglies into it so they could suffer the terrible traps set there by our Head Trapper, Korky the Ogre.


    They're dead. Hope they weren't important or anything.

    I promise to make sure the entrance is clear before teleporting uglies to the entrance next time.

    With my condolences,

    P.S.: I spoke to Korky about the terrible bloody mess in the entrance and that he should send some grunts to clean up there, but all he did glare at me and hiss between his clenched teeth about idiots. So, I don't know if your grunt and warriors corpses will still be there for you to mourn or not. If not, perhaps Korky knows where they are.

    My condolences once again,
