Google Music All Access

Finally! Will see if my subscription can be renewed after the trial period.

So far so good. The streaming is fast and in good quality (at least it's good enough for my ears). The app is easy to use, especially the radio thingy. Recommendations are great, suit me well.

Launching XFROCKS

So after a loooong time, I finally launch XFROCKS (again) with the help of Sylvie. The site is actually an experiment which provides premium support (premium = fast, accurate, personal) for freely released add-ons of mine. Only widely used add-ons got their own forum for questions:

To assist with the cost of running the site, 3 other add-ons are also available for sale:

  • Trophy Extension ($29) for [bd] Medal System: allow people to attach medals to trophies and have them show up in the posts etc.
  • User Group Extension ($29) for [bd] Medal System: similar to the above but with user group. When users purchase user group upgrade or have user group set by administrators, they will have additional medal image show up.
  • Last but not least, [bd] Attachment Store (only $19!): a completely new add-on allows sites to utilize Amazon S3/FTP as attachment storages. I have written 2 additional HOWTO post about using the add-on with Amazon S3+CloudFlare and Amazon S3+CloudFront.
The welcome post is pretty short but to the point: let's see how this goes!
