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.

  • Concerning Maintenance

    Alpha Colony,

    This is your friendly, helpful Maintenance Technician, Tela.

    As I have received no word on any request by any Administrator, or from Engineer Kiernan himself, in any capacity... I make the following announcement:

    If you have any requests for Maintenance, feel free to e-mail me or let me know over the Com, and I shall respond as soon as I can. While I have a phone, I rarely carry it these days.

    At this time, I cannot hire staff, but if I need help with a task, I would monetarily compensate on a per-hour basis.

    Thank you,

    -Tela, Maintenance Technician
