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)

  • You tap an elegantly crafted golden cage, containing a expressively colorful bird.
    The small colorful bird gently squawks, "Got."
    You ask an elegantly crafted golden cage, containing a expressively colorful bird, "Milk?"
    Amatoria crams a fist full of biscuits in her mouth.
    You pick out a biscuit from some biscuits.
    You consume the last of a biscuit.
    Dragaxus says to you, "You know you're quite sexy when you do that."
    Amatoria spits crumbs all over, "You're just saying that."

    Typically, 9 times out of 10 in TEC you are bored you just dont realize it because your brain functions at a higher rate and it keeps you from thinking about the possibility that you are simply sitting there doing absolutely nothing.

    • Around you is a garden of trees and flowers, intersected by little paths, alongside which are marble benches. You seat yourself on one of the benches listening to the song of birds as they flit from tree to tree.
      .
      A shudder goes through you as you feel the weight and dry touch of scales of the snake coiling about your arm and up to your shoulder. Its tongue licks at your cheek and ear, leaving you frozen in fear.

      The snake lifts its head before you, looking deep into your eyes. The dark, lidless eyes hold your gaze, leaving you entranced and unable to move. Your throat tightens, your airways closing up in terror as its mouth begins to open, exposing its fangs. The snake's head darts towards you quickly...

      You awaken with a start.

      As your surroundings come into focus you feel drained and tired.

      You see a very tall, strapping man. Staring out from beneath a smooth brow are large, mismatched eyes, one a sky blue and the other a jade green. His face is broad with chiselled features, with a regal nose and rugged chin. The sides of his head are shaven, with the remaining shoulder-length sleek blond hair divided into smaller braids and tied together with strips of doeskin along the lengths. On the right side of his head, above the ear, is a tattoo of a python's head. The grey, white and black patterned body of the snake twists around his neck once before going down his right arm. The whole arm is tattooed in the python's scale pattern, and tapers down from the wrist to end with the tail wrapped around his index finger.

      So...nothing like having your own tattoo also become your own nightmare....
      I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.

                        This Altene double-mace is constructed from a durscwood shaft that has been painted a striated tan. At each end of the shaft sit a bulbous iron weight that has been shaped to resemble a mushroom cap. The underside of each cap is midnight-blue, and the outside has been enamelled a bright opalescent purple.
