September 2nd is the anniversary of J.R.R.Tolkien's death and, along with January 3rd (Tolkien's birthday), the traditional date for big Eldarion announcements.

This year is no exception and we have exciting news about both our Python hosting service, Gondor, and our thought-streaming service, ThoughtStreams.


It's been three years since Gondor was launched and we're celebrating with a brand new look and a free 30 day trial for all new signups.

As part of the redesign, we also made a little ad called "Code What Matters" which you can check out on the Gondor home page.

We're still tweaking the redesign but as well as giving the site a fresh look, it gets us ready for a range of new features we have planned for Gondor in the coming months.

Because we want as many people as possible to try Gondor for their serious Python hosting needs, we're offering a free 30 day trial worth $100 to all new signups.

ThoughtStreams is already great for capturing your thoughts and ideas, and sharing them with the world.

But what if you want to share thoughts, ideas, experiments and observations just with your team?

We're in the process of rolling out ThoughtStreams for Teams: all the features of the public ThoughtStreams, scoped and private to your team.

If you'd like to participate in the private beta, or just find out when we launch team support, visit
