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.

    TEC is down.

    Since nobody else has posted this yet, to anyone who is wondering, yes. TEC is down.

    I hit the button. We were intermittently done from 3.30 to 4.something because I tried to start work to improve integration of the Orchil client on the site, and accidentally stepped on some of the current client setup. I restored things, and am going to better map everything out before I try again next week. (The object was to create a parallel setup and test it before moving the current setup over, so there wasn't *supposed* to be any impact.)
