Multiple Downtimes for All Games [Updated: Rest of Phase 1 Times]

Unfortunately, the whole computing world is facing a major crisis right now thanks to Intel and other major processors missing critical security flaws in their architecture. As a result, our ISP is doing a set of emergency updates to all of their hardware. We are getting about a day's notice on this, and we're told that they're going to need to patch each machine multiple times, which very inconveniently means multiple downtimes.

Our TEC and GR games have always been the most vulnerable to downtime, so I'm going to take the care to cleanly shutdown and restart those.

GR: Sunday, Midnight (all times are PT) DONE
TEC: Monday, 10PM

Expect the games to go down 10 minutes before the downtime, to be safe.

The other games tend to be cleaner, so I'm going to let them restart on their own:

Lovecraft: Monday, 9PM
Lazarus: Monday, 9PM
Web Site: Monday, 11PM [this will affect all logins & usage of the new TEC client]
TEC Client: Tuesday, 9PM
USERDB (site login): Tuesday night, midnight

The upgrade windows have all been less than 30 minutes to date, so you can expect games and/or services will be back up within 35-40 minutes of the hour.

I believe this is now a complete list of the first phase of updates, but there will be a second in the near future.

  • Swordcat Food Fight: 07/25/17 at 9:30p Eastern

    Don't be a chicken--join us at the Swordcat for an egg-citing food fight. You don't even need good aim to enjoy this egg-ceptional event. Come pelt your pals for a chance to win your own basket of peltable eggs, no yolking. (Cracking up yet, or are these puns too rotten?)

    Look for posters around town for more specifics, or ask Kyrah for details.

    The Swordcat is a private lounge in Iridine's Sandbar district. From the Temple of the Morning, walk northwest. Take the first street to your west and immediately turn south onto the small alley. Follow the alley as it winds west and opens onto a tidy street. The Swordcat is a few paces west, on the south side with an engraved door.

    For those who are directionally challenged (like moi), the Swordcat is located on the road south of marker 1 on this map on the wiki:
