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)

    I don't think players should permanently forfeit something like a domus that has THAT monumental of a price associated with it just because they left the game for a while and couldn't pay the normal taxes on it when they took a break from the game for six months or a year or whatever. I think taking it away from those players is going to be a deterrent from them ever possibly returning. Maybe if taking one of the domus's was only possible with the same Story Point/extremely high IG cost, that was then diverted towards the player who originally purchased it to try and lure them back.

      Atre had two apartments (pre holdings mechanics) that were bought around 2000 before he was PK'd. Those apartments have sat vacant. Well, not vacant. GMs auctioned off his pocketed cloak that had his keys in them and someone put two and two together. So someone has been squatting for nearly 20 years.

      I asked why they couldn't be reintroduced into the gameworld and was just straight up told "no". Seems like a giant waste.
