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.

    My heart is broken. My friend Amy lost her battle with cancer yesterday. Heaven gained an angel, and we all have lost a friend. Amy played my Laddie .. Ladona and Zee, Zearia. Prayers for her family and friends and we who have been blessed to know her.

      That is terrible news. She will be missed greatly.

        I'm very sorry to hear this. Greatest sympathies to everyone who knew her personally and who had the opportunity to play with her.

                This is incredibly sad news. My interactions with Ladona and Zearia IG were always positive, and built up to rock steady trust and respect. Gonna miss her very much. Condolences to all of her friends and family.

                  It hurt so bad to hear this news first thing this morning. I knew things were bad, but I always had hope for her. I always enjoyed my interactions with both Ladona & Zearia, and I'm so sorry that a bright light is gone from our game world.

                    Heart-wrenching news... I was not aware that she was sick, either. I've had a long and interesting relationship IG with her characters over the years. She will be very sorely missed.

                      I had no idea she was sick, my heart for the family. She always treated kered with so much love , she will be missed everyday

                        My heart it broken, I have no words, I obviously knew well she was sick, and often we would share our hardships, I do not know how much if any of that is or ever would be right to share but even in our last conversation I as I always told her the "you can and will beat this" guy.

                        I though accepting of this end will refuse to let it get me, I will instead remember her as a good friend, a patient friend, a loving mother, and always the kind of person who would take ten minuets and think hard on a way to make me smile. There are far too few people so good in this world. But in time I will see her again.

                          I got the call from Cyradis today while I was at work letting me know what had happened. I could tell she'd been crying. As much as we may seem like the enemy at times, the staff never wants to hear this news. We do care. Our thoughts are with Amy's friends and family during these hard times.

                              Sceadu, I have never thought that of any of you, even when I have disagreed.
