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)

  • Change of Leadership

    I logged in today to discover that Scoundrel is now the leader of the Republic. Although Scoundrel is quite capable of handling the position, I can't quite express how pissed off I am that ONCE AGAIN, the former leader has 'disappeared'. It seems to be a recurring theme. It's also disheartening. I understand if someone needs a break for whatever reason, but communicate this with me. I'd appreciate that.

    I fully intend to keep this lair running smoothly, as upgrades continue and the members who play are having a good time. We have the builder active, the NOW leader (Scoundrel) active, the potions maker active, trap master active, most specialty rooms built and upgraded, plenty of armor, weapons, and other miscellany for the members. Sure I should address this with the former leader, but I am just too pissed to deal with him. Promises forgotten again. Perhaps there is a valid reason that he disappeared without letting me know he was leaving again, but come on! How many times is this clan supposed to go thru a collapsed lair, and the work it takes to build a new one?

    Like I said, I have every intention of keeping this lair going for years to come. As far as the old leader, well, he's a member of the clan, but I won't let him lead it again since he disappears and drops out of the leader position way too frequently for stability. So don't worry about the lair. It's gonna be here for you.

    Just really really needed to rant. I am SO pissed. But determined. Be sure of that. DETERMINED to keep this lair in top shape and running smoothly. I'm not going anywhere, if I can help it.

    [End rant]

    I am wondering how many players are currently active in the Republic lair. If noone from the lair is playing anymore, I would like to know. If you ARE still playing a character in this lair, please post here.
