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.

  • The Culling Veteran Character Package Awarding

    Hi Folks,
    Now that the culling is underway, here's some information on when Veteran Character Packages will be awarded:

    First, we are informed when a character dies, how they die, and who killed them, as it happens, so that we can review that nothing has taken place outside the OOC rules of the competition.

    Second, we need to take the time to calculate the right level of VC Package for the slain character.

    Third, we will be releasing names of deceased characters ICly after a period of time.

    VC Packages will be awarded as your character's name is ICly announced.

    Please wait until you have received your VC Package before deleting your perished character.
