My new home

So, after many MANY problems with my web host, which include everything from accusations of hacking to repeated downtime to the latest issue of having their ENTIRE SERVER hacked, I've decided to finally give up on running websites on my own.

At first, I was told that only my sites were hacked, but it turns out the entire server that housed my sites was hacked. This is good because it means I don't need to take it personally, but it's bad because my sites are broken, and you know me... I didn't have recent backups.

So I'm done with that crap. I'm done with having my own sites, and I'm handing that part of it over to Blogger.com. I've always thought it seemed a bit less "professional" when bloggers used services like this, but it certainly has its advantages.

So this new blog will be a compilation of my latest projects, and my thoughts on MMOs, the post-apoc genre, music, family, off-grid living and anything else that tickles my fancy.


  1. Woo hoo! Welcome to the free side. :3

    But, honestly, that really sucks with your web host. I've used GoDaddy.com in the past, and they've been pretty good -- if you ever want to go back to that type of stuff, of course.

  2. I use GoDaddy for my GuildCast site, and they are much more reliable, but you don't have as much freedom for add-ons, etc. When I thought about all of the time I've spent fixing site problems that stem from things that are their fault, it makes you wonder why you're paying so much for their 'service'. So we'll see how this works out.

  3. That sucks. But hey blogger aint so bad im a WP man myself but they all have the same basic features. And now.... Shameless self promotion! These are some Post apoc Post Cards http://www.comeseemyart.com/2009/09/pictures-from-postapocolyptia/

    And 2 post apoc Landscapes
    I like the idea of organic overgrowth. Tell me what you think!
    Also, good luck getting your content back.

  4. Blogger can be used invisibly from your own domain and Google will do all the set up in the background. Its a great service and personally, I find it more annoying when people are paying to host their own blog somewhere and it looks like shit, crashes with 10 people on it, and otherwise looks amateurish.
