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.

  • Scheduled plots - days/times

    Obviously turnout has been lackluster, and running even the simplest of plots has been a problem due to low turnout.

    Would any players like to see certain days set aside sort for planned mini-plot events? I could pick an evening or two a week to just run some small type of plot or event, if anyone here would like to take part. Now it won't be anything fancy, as we can't exactly run an intricate plot with a handful of players. But at least it could be some activity, and perhaps it would bring more players in overall.

    Anyway, if anyone is interested, list the evenings you might be available. Usually middle of the week is best for me.

    My times are so mixed so I never really have any specific timing. If you plan something I'll likely be able to attend.

      Going to try for tomorrow (Wed) evening, somewhere between 8-10 PM Skotos time. I can't promise much, but worst case I can throw some free items out there, or have a dog bite someone...

        Well, not exactly a huge turnout last week. I'll be around tomorrow (Wed) around the same time (let's say 9PM+) ... if anyone wants to show up, I'll try to arrange something.

          I should be able to make it! I couldn't last week because I work nights, but I'll have off this Wednesday night.
