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.

  • New job code update -- extra pay for some

    I finally got around to coding up the job database, so now all the salaries, grade levels and job info is in code -- much more reliable (I hope) than relying on my memory.

    So if you have an official job here, please see First Advisor Talbot to get a new worker identification card. This card can also be pinned to your shirt, if you so wish.

    The card displays the work sector you are employed in and your current worker class. Grades go from 1 to 12, with 1 being the highest grade.

    Your commerce bracelets now have updated code to reflect your new salaries. For those with two jobs, the second job will pay at half rate.
