Planned Server Outage – January 2 and will be down January 2

We are in the process of migrating our website and store/login area to a new hosting provider. On January 2, 2018, at 1PM Pacific Standard Time (PST), all Kazrog web properties will be taken offline, and the transition will begin. The anticipated downtime will be 72 hours, possibly less.

What do I need to do?

If you need to purchase, download, or authorize plugins, please do so now, before the scheduled downtime to avoid being stuck in demo mode.

Once all systems are go on the new host, another notice will be sent out. Thanks to all of you for your patience and continued support!

Have a safe and happy New Year!

Thomas Fire Update

As some of you may already know, normal operation of Kazrog LLC has been adversely affected by the Thomas Fire currently burning in California. As a one-man company, I’ve been able to keep prices low and quality high by maintaining a streamlined workflow and focusing on making products that (individually) do one thing well. The downside of being a lone developer, of course, is that if things go wrong, it can derail the entire operation.

At this point in time, my family and I are safe – we’ve evacuated inland and are visiting relatives who have been kind enough to provide us with a place to stay. My servers are redundant and in another state, so the Kazrog website is working flawlessly as always.

Active development, however, has been paused for the time being. I’ve not been able to bring my core build machines with me – only my laptop with minimal tools installed. Rural Internet service is literally broken – not due to the fire, but due to the lack of any kind of meaningful regulation of Internet service in this country. Accordingly, I’m having to tether to my cell phone at $10 USD / GB to get to the cloud, which of course I’m doing sparingly.

I appreciate everyone’s kind words of concern. I consider myself very lucky at this time – there are a lot of people (many who are also in the music industry) who have been much more heavily impacted by this disaster, and I feel fortunate that my family and I are safe and comfortable.

So, until further notice, I’m going to focus on spending time with my family and staying out of the smoke. I’ll post another update once things are mostly back to normal.
