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.

      I am so mad at you.

        Was a big name and am sure will be discussed for years to come. Hope yer next char will be likewise pivotal.


        • #5
          Rubico is one of the characters I'm sad never really role played with, hope I manage to cross paths with your new character.

            Sad to hear, i know you wanted to test the gods, and you did, look forward to whomever you make new

              Those ranks would have driven me nuts.

              Rubico will be missed by a lot of people. Syden definately learned a lot from the old wax candle especially with all the SoE, undone and heretic history.

              kudos and all the best for your new character.

                RIP Rubico. Long Live Mindthrasher. \m/(-_-)

                Also what Elowynn said.
                Nothing much to say.

                  Well at least now we know Iridine isn't just Rubico's dream, and he's the God... he can die, and he did!

                    What to say....
                    He was a bigoted, self-righteous arse. And Ereal help her, Kal loved him more than the waking world. It's gonna be hard to move forward without him next to her, making her laugh and keeping her in line. He did make an impact on the world beyond my one little toon and his absence will be felt by many. But whatever happens, I'm grateful for the time I got to spend with him as a character and you as a player. Thank you. Here's hoping the stories keep coming.
                    This isn't a bakery. We aren't gonna sugar coat sh*t for you.

                    Tell a lie often enough and with enough conviction, it will become truth to all who hear, and say, it.

                      RIP. Thanks for the years of fun. See ya around.
                      The position being taken is not to be mistaken for attempted education or righteous accusation- Only a description, just an observation of the pitiful condition of our degeneration.

                      Oh doom and gloom, oh doom and gloom, the GMs are fools and do not realize what a position they have put us in. They could not possibly have thought of all of this already, for they are but tiny brained fools.
                      Keep on keepin' on, can ya dig it?

                        Kjel will keep the memory of Rubico alive by asking for him constantly.

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