Multiple Downtimes for All Games [Updated: Rest of Phase 1 Times]

Unfortunately, the whole computing world is facing a major crisis right now thanks to Intel and other major processors missing critical security flaws in their architecture. As a result, our ISP is doing a set of emergency updates to all of their hardware. We are getting about a day's notice on this, and we're told that they're going to need to patch each machine multiple times, which very inconveniently means multiple downtimes.

Our TEC and GR games have always been the most vulnerable to downtime, so I'm going to take the care to cleanly shutdown and restart those.

GR: Sunday, Midnight (all times are PT) DONE
TEC: Monday, 10PM

Expect the games to go down 10 minutes before the downtime, to be safe.

The other games tend to be cleaner, so I'm going to let them restart on their own:

Lovecraft: Monday, 9PM
Lazarus: Monday, 9PM
Web Site: Monday, 11PM [this will affect all logins & usage of the new TEC client]
TEC Client: Tuesday, 9PM
USERDB (site login): Tuesday night, midnight

The upgrade windows have all been less than 30 minutes to date, so you can expect games and/or services will be back up within 35-40 minutes of the hour.

I believe this is now a complete list of the first phase of updates, but there will be a second in the near future.

    I read somewhere that someone was having issues getting their husband to play because navigating past creating an account is difficult. Can we add a series of pictures, like below (but better) to both the wiki and the page?

    You know what kind of website I want to see dedicated to?

    A Chargen Build Guide...

    IT tells you what each choice gives.... like, Spindly body form = speed, coltish body form = agility etc etc..

    That would make rolling good chars for newbs easy.. who wants to start off all spread out like a jackass, with fairly good everything.

        It's just a game man, a role playing game, make a character, it's not like you're playing Yezrah7 in text form, play what you get, and improve it as the character ages, or don't. Loss of a character isn't the end of the game, it's just a chance to play a different character.
