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.

  • Fresh VC or Clone VC?

    So, kind of curious here with all the new VC's running about from old players returning and saying BAH! to old characters and getting them killed off for a new start, how many of you fell into the old skills of the toon you just killed, or did you take a total fresh start and try something new? CM's won't count as a skill being relearned as almost all fighter characters learn this. As some folks have 2 or more VC's, I'll allow multiple choice answers as well. Both my VC's have been fresh start on all skills
    Full on skill clone of dead character
    same weapon/shield skills
    same non-com skills
    Total fresh start on all skills
    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.

    I admit, once I've gotten to about 90/50 in a combat skill, I lose interest in it, and never want to play it again. I got two VCs over the past year, and I went different routes with each. Next one, I'm going to do a complete non-com.
