Status Update

As of last night I had a host picked out, but I wasn't too confident about it. However, thankfully we were contacted on Twitter by Anthony of After talking to him for a while, it seemed like they were the best solution I had seen so far. They offer up a more robust VM, plus they are very open to scaling servers up and down based on your needs. It sounded like a great fit and after discussing this with Goldenstar a bit more last night and this morning we made the decision to move ahead with the purchase.

Well, it turns out that Anthony is not a sales person, but the Network Operations Manager for the company. He was great in assisting us and he even processed our order as soon as it was placed. So right now, somewhere in Dallas, TX (my home before Michigan) a new virtual server is being created that will be hosting A Casual Stroll to Mordor. Once it's up, a technician will begin moving our data from our old host to our new host (which was included in the service). So, everything is looking good.

We would like to express our thanks to everyone who contributed financially, mentally, and/or spiritually. We cannot thank you enough for all of this.

So to our writers: If you thought you had a vacation, you're wrong. You best be typing away, because we're going to be back before you know it!



  1. That is awesome news! Best of luck with all the techie stuff!

  2. Cool. I figured a VPS server would work out well for you guys (I've only done it with HostGator) and this sounds like a great set up for you.

    I know it sucks, but it's also really awesome that you guys have gotten this big.
