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.

GENESIS:

- Shutdown Grendel (late Sunday 6/23)

- Startup Grendel (early Monday 6/24)

- Shutdown TEC (late Monday 6/24)

- Startup TEC (early Tuesday 6/25)

- Check TEC Client (9pm Tuesday 6/25)

- Shutdown TEC-Test (late Thursday 6/27)

- Startup TEC-Test (Friday 6/28)


SKOTOS:

- Marrach (Monday early morning 6/24)

- Ironclaw (Monday 10pm-midnight 6/24)

- Lovecraft, Lazarus (Monday 8pm-10pm 7/2)


MAIN SITE:

- UserDB (Monday 10pm-midnight 6/24)

- Web (Sunday 9pm-11pm 6/30)

    My absence over the next coming weeks

    So, Vakrend is getting ready to disappear from the gameworld for the next few weeks as my wife is scheduled to go in tomorrow night to be induced, and we expect that God willing we'll be holding our new baby girl sometime on Wednesday. I'm pretty excited about that, but for IG purposes Vakrend will be off to Aestiva for a little while, and should return sometime in the near future when things get back to some semblance of normal in my world. No offense to any of you, but TEC is going to be relegated to pretty far down in my priorities right now. I've been waiting to hold my daughter my whole life, and I intend to do that and spend a lot of time playing with her.

    I might drop in a few times to say 'hi' in the Welcome Area or put Vakrend in the library for a bit as for RP purposes I'd kind of like him to be fluent in the language when he comes back, but I'm not thinking that I'd want much in the way of interactions with others as I don't think I'll be able to devote much time to it. Then again, my paternity leave package through work is fairly generous, so I don't know. I might go a little stir crazy and come back sooner.

    IG, still planning on having the party that Vakrend has worked on, and after he actually returns I'll make sure to devote some energy to making it happen.

    Congrats, dude. Your daughter will steal your heart more than you know. Until they're 2... then you really know what a love/hate relationship is. Haha, just kidding. Enjoy it!!
