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.

    • Can hooded cloaks be changed to hide <gender|body type|name in thoughts>. Per Sceadu, no.
    • If I want to be a Storyguide or GM, what do I do? Use the @staff-app command IG to fill out an application. While we aren't currently pursuing new staff, these will be reviewed whenever that changes.
    • How often does the stock at <Belhrad's|Parissa's|Miroslav|Tibbeth|Aeriaus> refresh? Every 10 minutes, there is a chance that the stock will change. Not every time will every store change, and there are times that no stock changes, or the shopkeep changes the order of stock in the case. In addition, I will manually clear out all of the stores' stocks whenever Sharonpa's box queue is getting low, generating entirely new stock across all of the stores.
