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.

  • Bulk containers for selling goods

    The electronics stall in the Pyramid now sells bulk containers for plants, animal specimens and general merchandise, in both large and small sizes. The general merchandise container can hold rocks or any goods for resale.

    What these containers really do is allow you to sell in bulk to Phibes, the trade shop, or in the greenhouse. Just stuff the containers with whatever you want to sell, then sell the container itself, and the buyer will automatically add up the value of everything inside and pay you.

    So you no longer have to sell fish one by one, etc.

    Just make sure to put the right goods in the proper container. Whoever you sell to will buy it, regardless of what is inside, so don't accidentally stuff the animal container with rocks, or you'll lose your rocks for a minimal price.

    One or two larger canines should be able to carry the large containers, while the remainder of large-med size canines can carry the smaller ones.
