In Case You Didn’t Notice, We’ve Moved!

28 04 2014

Hey everyone! You may have noticed that clicking on  this url: takes you to a completely different-looking site than it has in the past nearly 2 years.

The reason for that is simple: We’ve moved. We’re always striving for ways to do what we do better. So the time has finally come for us to say farewell to WordPress and migrate to a different hosting service.

What does this mean for you, our loyal and faithful readers? A few things–don’t worry it’s nothing major.

1 – Going to simply takes you to the new site. We’ve migrated ALL of our previous posts to the new site, and we now have a nifty search bar that will allow you to search via keywords etc. through our archives.

2 – If you subscribed to our site through your WordPress account, you’ll need to resubscribe. If you subscribed using an email address, we’ve ported that over to the new system. WE WILL NEVER SELL YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS. We only use them to push out new content; it’s just like it was before, only under a new system. We’ve put a convenient subscription field on our sidebar of the new site. The same goes for your RSS feed; here’s our new RSS feed:

3 – We’ll be more awesome than ever! We hope! Please let us know if you find anything weird. I mean, weirder than that picture of Jeremiah as the back end of a My Little Pony cosplay…

Thanks so much for all of your support over the first phase of TOG; we’re excited to move forward into this new era!

Bullfrogs–A Double-Take Review

10 04 2014

was a good friend of mine!

but I would help him drink his wine!
