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.

  • Staffers?

    Can we get any staffers in game? I've been suffering from a bug for 3 days now basically leaving me out of the only thing there is to do in game right now.

    I wasn't about during the weekend, until today, so didn't see any assists in regard to bugs. Log in during the evening this week if you can, and I'll take a look at it.

    I'll peek around while you are offline, but can't promise I'll find a fix right away.

    As for the 'only thing in the game to do right now' ... I understand the game can be slow when we have low player turnout, but assuming the issue hasn't crippled your character (and hopefully it hasn't), I'm not quite sure how it stops you from doing normal activities.

    The area where you are seeing that bug hasn't even been open for close to a year now.

    Edit: I think I see what the problem might be, but sort of need you around to fully test things. So just log in one night and yell at me and I think I can put in a fix.
