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)

    Mid August already and still no promo for this month. Very disappointed, but I guess that's nothing new when it comes to this game

      Promotions should always be viewed as extras. Skotos doesn't owe us one. Nor is insulting them the way to get one.

      Those who are afraid of the dark have never seen what the light can do.

          While I agree insults likely won't encourage more promotions, a certain level of consistency would be nice. But I guess technically they don't owe us that either.

            Sceadu's been nothing but kind to me since I've came back <3

            Game's better without the drama anyways. With that being said. Promotions are awesome. I'll be happy saving up my RP's until another one comes out

              Imagine pulling up to a McDonalds. They had an order come through five minutes before hand, and order twenty burgers, then drove off as a prank. They're going to just throw them away. You make it very clear you're willing to pay for them, but they insist on putting them in the garbage.

              Yeah, the GM's don't owe us a promo, but it sure feels like a wasted opportunity considering 2 pages of people chomping at the bit.

              You mean it's true?

                  I appreciated the parchment events put on last night. My one ask would be that it not start after 1AM EST. I would have liked to participate more but at some point you have to call it a night.
                  <Tivan thinks aloud: No offense, I'd rather take it from behind by an eyeless humanoid from twilight...guess I'll get them myself.>

                  Haggard squeaks to MindThrasher, "My only regret about lanc dying...is that Kjel was at the toga.."

                  Fidellus whispers something to Lucarnes.

                    It started at 11:30 p.m. EST, which was just after we hit peak logins for the day up until that point, at 11 p.m. EST. I will keep your feedback in mind for future events, thanks.
