Again, I'm right there with you.  My left arm has been getting a C- all week after having done something to my elbow tendons.  I'll grant you, it's nowhere near as debilitating as throwing your back out (still on my bucket list) but I'm looking forward to being able to pick up a tea mug without pain at some point before I die.

Hey Guys, I am so sorry for my delay in participation.

I have a lot of RL stuff going on this month. We are buying my company, moving the company and I have been doing a lot of the build out of the new office myself - A) because I like doing that stuff, and B) I saved myself a few thousand dollars by doing it myself.

When I have had free time, I have either been needing to spend it with the wife, GM'ing our live game on Tuesdays, or getting out to concerts with my son. All have been a blast, but have had me distracted from here.

I am NOT gone, just kind of slammed. I will get a story post up for my PC very soon.

In the meantime, here is a couple photos of our Brit Floyd concert, last night! Still in the afterglow of this one. I have seen them three times now and they NEVER disappoint. So awesome that they are carrying forward the torch of my favorite band.

Well y'all, off to GenCon tomorrow... I'll be indisposed til Sunday or Monday.  Anything shall I check on for you while there?

Eclecticon

I know of Gen Con only as a traveller's tale.  Nearly anything you have to report would be interesting.

Hey guys,

I received an email from Brandon today that he is sunsetting his physical servers at his business and is moving his clients to cloud-based servers.

That includes us.

He wants to continue to help us with all of the technical side of RPG.avioc.org, but the cloud server will cost us  about $60 a year. There are four of us here, so that is approximately $15 each per year to have our game site. The prices are not set, so there could be some variation there based on what cloud server we use.

I have no problem fronting the cost for hosting, but would request that we split the amount evenly. Payments to me can be made via PayPal.

So the question is - do you all want to maintain our game here? I have enjoyed the last 18 years of gaming on these boards and would hate to see it end, so I am in 100% - I just need to know your statuses.

Let me know ASAP so I can inform Brandon as to what we are doing.

Thanks!

I'm quite happy to chip in for a share of the cost.  I'll try to send $15 but might not get it exactly right depending on what exchange rates do.  I'll aim to over-contribute rather than under, though.

That's cool, Paul, but let's wait for the consensus.

It might be a few months until Brandon makes the crossover and we'll need the costs, but I will keep you guys apprised.
