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.

    Does Apula still offer locksmithing jobs?

    She should. Some of the automated jobs have been stuttering lately though. File an @report and they've been quick to restart them.

      They are kinda working on it. It might be a matter of your ranks too.
      The changed it so you needed more ranks in the specific skill to get those jobs. I've got 10 in unlocking and installing locks and I get zero of those jobs. I only get locking jobs, but that had like 20-30 ranks before I got one of those jobs.
      I sent a report a few weeks ago and Tale (I think) said it was a problem with when they bought in the tailoring jobs. Something about the game only having X amount of those NPC jobs available across the game at a time. He upped that number but it still might need tweaking.
