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.

      On that note, how about we post the time(s) we have a chance of being available to play here?

      Mind you, let's all just start logging in, tapping bracelets for credits, giving a shout on Com, and doing a Com Recall. Apart from saying Hi or Alpha as of late, that's what I've been doing.

      Also, there might be some stuff gonna happen, provided Laz and I can get in in a similar time frame.

      Presently I have most mornings open, with days off of work being Sunday and Wednesday. Monday is the weird exception. If I can leave work on time, I can be online around 7 PM CST. Otherwise, a bit later.

        I have not been around for a while and had a heck of a time getting in to the forums. None of my old log ins worked. So I created a new one ONLY for the forum until I get my old account unlocked. Once I do, keep an Eye out for Fionn (Fionnghuala, Nell) the Maintenance worker. She was hatched Dec 2005 or 06. I am over on Facebook, Steffeny Muller

        But have come up with a potential new plot if Lazarus accepts it (ping Michael, check your Skotos email account).

        NOTE: I am in the US Eastern Time Zone. Laz s in the Pacific Zone I think.

        I am currently residing in a physical Rehab Facility, so my daily schedule is flexible to some extent, I will need to take mandatory breaks at meal times as my laptop and meal tray do no both fit on the hospital bed table I use.

        So times I am not available (Eastern time zone) 7:45 am to 9 am, 12;15 pm to 1:30 pm
