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 usually do an annual checkup, but I think I let this one go wayyy longer. Just dropped in to see what the changes looked like and who was around. Definitely some...interesting alterations to the layout of the game and how it is played. Hope everyone is doing well.

      Was very lucky to bump into you in the WA. Brought back memories of a time when we were still young and good looking. Hope the game's changes makes you curious enough to visit for a while.

          Oh, Hi. Sorry I missed that.
          There is no point in arguing with an idiot. They will just drag you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

          Did you vote today?

          I can't spell. Don't you RP with me!

            It's funny what a decade does to a game. Worth checking out again, also I'm back too.

                I have to come out of hiding and admit that I've just checked out the forums after more than two years. It seems things are going pretty well and I'm happy to see that. Btw, TEC just isn't the same without its master villains, Max. Major props go out to the folks still maintaining the TEC wiki, don't let my dream die. And before people ask, I am not back and never will be. Just had to chime in after seeing all of these old names and reliving some of the memories we shared. Best of luck to everyone and I hope that life treats you all well.
