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.

    8:00pm - Trial of the Bandit Archer Nevik

    Nevik's many victims let out a sigh of relief upon his eventual capture, but now it's time for Nevik to face the consequences under the purview of Iridine's highest Justice, Sir Lucian Allende, at a public trial. All citizens and residents of the Republic are welcome to meet at the city's Forum Court to witness the events. Persons wishing to testify are encouraged to speak with a constable to make arrangements.

    I @requested to break Nevik out of jail, because if you look at the sewers map, there's a tunnel that runs right under the constable HQ...

    and I said I would pay rolepoints, to let me and my friends dig the tunnel and break into the jail cell and let Nevik free...

    honestly it would be like a 10yard dig.... according to sewers map and cell location.

    But, my request was dismissed. sorry... my criminal gang can't break you free Nevik.

        it would be more like a yard and a half since there's already a tunnel under the cells from an ancient event....just gotta find it
