    Bouncy Blizzard 1.1.1 Now Available
    Enjoying the snow?

    Well, Bouncy Blizzard v.1.1.1 is now available to download which includes a couple popular feature requests. First of all, Group Permissions. You can now control which groups see the Bouncy Blizzard Hook (great if you have a group dedicated to people who don't love snow) additionally, you can control which groups can control the snow, again, great if you want to force people to see the snow, but not be able to control or disable it.

    Another popular request I had was to add a setting to be able to change the stacking order of the snow. Well, that's now included with v1.1.1 too. The CSS Stacking Order or "zIndex" defines the order in which elements are placed on top of each other. The higher the number, the higher up it's stacked. Some of you who have been using the snow in the banner Area of your forums will have noticed that the snow falls behind the user controls area (on the default skin). Increasing the Stacking Number for Bouncy Blizzard would make the snow fall infront of the user controls. Hopefully you all understand how that works.

    Last of all, there's been a few typo fixes and an improvement to the starting of the snow which should make things a little bit smoother when loading.

    Don't forget, if you have any ideas or suggestions, visit the Support Topic and let me know.

    Stay Frosty

    Bouncy Blizzard: Snow For Your Forum
    Christmas is coming, your forums looking flat. get yourself some snow it will change all that!

    Christmas jingles aside, it's that time of year again, the time when we all wish for snow this Christmas (and usually let down) and hope for all those cool new gadgets and devices that seem to have been sold out everywhere. Luckily, when it comes to the internet and forums, we can change all that. While I can't hand you out a big box of the latest gadgets, I can give you unlimited amounts of snow that's guaranteed never to run out (or your money back).

    Bouncy Blizzard is a cross browser highly customizable hook for IP.Board that gives you ultimate control over the snow storm on your forum. It gives you the ability to localise your snow, meaning you can have it snow full screen across your forum, or simply have it snow in your forums banner. Along with that the speed and direction of the snow will change, and the wind direction will even follow your mouse pointer.

    In addition to all the cool features Bouncy Blizzard offers you, there's also lots of new Christmas themed skins from the talented skin designers, so why not grab yourself a beautiful new holiday skin, and introduce some snow with the Bouncy Blizzard hook, IP.Board has never looked so great!

    Attention Radio Heads
    Over the years hundreds of forum owners have enjoyed the many unique features that an online live radio brings to both their forum's and their community's. It's fun, entertaining and provides a massive boost to the popularity of your website.

    Bouncy Radio Center is a truly unique application that brings a whole new feature to IP.Board, but it the fun doesn't end there. As time goes by people want new and exciting new things which will unite their communities and bring members closer together. They want more interaction and more ways to connect, and today we have taken 1 step closer to having a more interactive radio station.

    How? simple, the Bouncy Radio Request Hook . It's a simple idea with a big impact. It allows for the community to interact directly with your radio DJ's in a very unique way. Think of it like a shoutbox. But only the DJ's can see the window containing the "shouts".

    This allows for members to request songs, submit answers to competitions and pretty much make any request to the DJ's and the DJ never has to leave or refresh a page. We've also added Notifications, so when the DJ approves or accepts a members request, they will receive a notification letting them know that the song they requested is about to be played live on the radio.

    Sometime's it really is the simple ideas which make a big difference, and after the short testing by a few communities, this hook has already proven to be a massive hit, with both the DJ's and the community.

    The hook is now available to the public for just £2.99 and I hope all you Radio Heads enjoy it as much as I have.

    Don't forget, if you have any ideas or suggestions for any of the "Bouncy" applications, hooks or other products, let me know. I love hearing feedback for our products and getting the community here involved with feature development.

    Bouncy Oblivion Demo
    Every now and again i like to take a dive into the deep end of the development world and pluck out a few mod requests that i find interesting and try to create them. It's a great way for me to take a break from working on the same Applications every day and to get the creative juices flowing.

    I recently seen a topic in the Modifications section which was requesting for a modification which would hide posts in a topic based on a rating sort of system. This sounded like something i had seen on various Blog sites, where you could nagativly vote a comment, and after it had recieved enough votes the comment would be hidden by default but still contain a link to show the post if you wanted to read it.

    This is something i thought would be greatly appreciated on many forums, as it allows members to be more active in rating posts and using the reputation system, and hiding bad content, off topic replys or spam from topics. So, i went ahead and created the modification.

    To begin with the modification was relativly easy, as all the data variables i needed were already available within the templates and files. This meant i just needed to change a few things and write a bit of javascript and ajax functions to make the thing look good.

    The video below shows a quick demonstration of who Bouncy Oblivion Looks & works, using Ajax slide effects to hide and show posts which have been hidden and how they appear when visiting a topic. At the moment the hidden posts are using the default error message style because it was quick and easy to do. I may change this when its released and if you guys have any ideas or suggestion or even a bit of feedback, let me know.

    Time for the Video (my appologies for the quality of the screen capturing, i need to get better software)

    VIDEO: Bouncy Mail - Attachments, Member Management, Branding, System Check & System Overview
    A quick look at some of the features in Bouncy Mail 1.0.0 Beta 2
  6. AnthonyKinson added a blog entry in IPS Marketplace Blog   

    Bouncy Mail - Last Chance For Feature Requests
    For those of you have have not heard, Bouncy Mail is a unique Application designed specifically for IP.Board to bring a whole new service to you and your community. If you didn't already guess this service is E-mail.

    IP.Board comes jam packed with features for communicating with other people, be it Facebook, twitter or some other third party social applications, but we have never truly had the ability to use and provide one of the most common forms of communication on the Internet, and that of course, is E-mail.

    Bouncy Mail is designed to give you just that, the power to provide email services right to your community using your very own domain name and IP.Boards easy to use interface that your community will instantly be familiar with. You can provide a service very similar to those provided by the likes of Hotmail, Gmail and other popular E-mail providers.

    The cost of this? £0.00, that's right, its absolutely free and will be available to all IP.Board license holders at no cost.

    For those of you who are aware of this Application and have been following the progress of it over the last year, you will already know just how important the community's feedback and suggestions are to making this application brilliant. This is where you, the community come in, whether you have been following this project from the start, or whether you are only just hearing about it now, i need your feedback and suggestions.

    Bouncy Mail 1.0.0 (Beta 1) has been out for almost a month now as a feature restricted version, and I'm just about ready to hand out the next version (Beta 2) which will be the final Beta version before the release candidates start flowing, and the final chance for any feature suggestions you have to be considered for inclusion for the final release, so as you can imagine, you suggestions are now more important that ever.

    If you do have any ideas you want to put forward, don't be shy, head over to This Topic and post me your ideas, thoughts or any questions you may have.

    With all that said, i would like to thank everyone who has had some input on this application over the last year personally, but that would take a long time, there has been so many of you, so i'll have to thank you all at the same time, so Thank You! It's you guys which make it a joy to work on applications like this and the support from everyone (including IPS staff) has been amazing.

    We have a few more hurdles to jump but we're not far from the final version now so get involved and share your ideas!

    Thanks Again

    I've asked this already, where is the Bouncy Radio support for 3.2?

  2. AnthonyKinson

    I'm going to have to say that my favorite new feature of IP.Board 3.2.0 is the AdminCP button opening in a new window.

  3. Matt Enloe » AnthonyKinson

    Hey, do you not support Bouncy Radio anymore?

  4. AnthonyKinson

    Visual Skin Editor... VERY Impressive. Nice to see Local Storage being used :D

    1. rsyvarth

      Are they using the HTML5 Local Storage? It seems more likely that they will be using cookies..

    2. AnthonyKinson

      i'm certain i heard matt say the visual editor popup was using the browsers Local Storage when navigating between pages. It's the same thing i used for the sticky notes hook.

    3. Rikki

      Yes we use localstorage to keep state between pages :)

    4. AnthonyKinson

      I'm really impressed with the HTML 5 and CSS3 usage in 3.2.0, i've been pushing it in my apps for a while now, it lets you do so much more ^_^

    5. .Peter

      So for people using IE7 they're just S.O.L. on the Visual Editor?

    6. rsyvarth

      They could save the skin in between each page load... or they could upgrade their browser like a sane person.

    7. .time

      @.Peter I don't think anyone competent enough to run a forum still uses IE7.

      (...or IE at all ...*ducks*)

  5. AnthonyKinson

    The new 3.2.0 skin is starting to grow on me :)

    1. Andrej

      Agreed. Also so easy to change which is nice.

  6. AnthonyKinson

    cant get used to this new skin, just feels bulky :(

    1. ash somers

      yeah i'm not overly wrapped, i think they got it right with the last one; why fix what wasn't broken?

    2. ørret

      That's why we got skinners.

    3. Michael

      I rather like it myself. Lots of people said the old skin *was* broken. Just goes to show you that you can't please everyone.

    4. ash somers

      i tried to like it, honest :p

    5. AnthonyKinson

      theres some parts of it i like, but it feels like a step backwards, doesn't look or feel as professional as before

    4. AnthonyKinson

      Yeah it's Bouncy Xbox Live, was a message for BXBL users who all pretty much know the abbreviation :)

    5. ørret

      Ah OK. Thanks.

  8. AnthonyKinson

    3. AnthonyKinson

  11. AnthonyKinson

    1. .Peter

      You got your wallet back?

    2. AnthonyKinson

      lol i wish! that thing has long gone :(

    3. Jake Sully

      you got your bag of money back? xD

    4. JPavey

    5. Chetan105

      your email system made it to IPB 3.2

    6. media

      none of the above LOL!

    7. Tarun

    8. Ajouz ♞

      your car destroyed totally

    9. .Peter

      @Ajouz now wouldn't that be ironic?

    10. AnthonyKinson

      all wrong lol

  12. AnthonyKinson

    £77.50 for a new passport, £20 for replacement driving license... my week just gets better and better -_-

    1. ørret

      I wish you good sales! ;)

    2. AnthonyKinson

      it's just the fact it's bad enough when your wallet is stolen, let alone having to pay ridiculous amounts of money to have your cards replaced :( bank wanted £10 per stolen card off me too.

    3. Olivier Turbis

      Wow, driving licenses are cheap where you live.

    4. Planetby

      :O £77.50 for a passport now, jeez i best put mine in the bank to be safe then lol......Bad luck Anthony, hope the thievin gits rot in hell

    5. AnthonyKinson

      Olivier, thats just the price for a replacement, its £50 otherwise.

    6. AnthonyKinson

      driving license -
      uk passport -

    7. Mat B

      It's $350 or so to go through the full driver licensing system here Anthony, so I'd still call it cheap.

    8. AnthonyKinson

      oh thats just for the license card, we still have to pay to do the theory test as well, and then the practical test, as well as around £500 for a 1 week "crash course" driving lessons.

  13. AnthonyKinson

    Can't believe i've had my wallet stolen -_-

    1. Olivier Turbis

      Oh crap :s

    2. Ryan Ashbrook

      Been there, done that. Have a messed up wrist to prove it too. :P

    3. .Peter

      @Ryan ???
      @Anthony Sorry to hear that :(

    4. Ryan Ashbrook

      .Peter: I was robbed a year ago, they took my wallet. I punched a lot of stuff. :P

    5. AnthonyKinson

      it's a horible feeling. Had about £300 in there too, but all i care about is my cards and stuff. It had my driving license and everything in it. :(

    6. Olivier Turbis

      Ryan: Are you proud of the action you've taken?

    7. Ryan Ashbrook

      That's an odd question, Olivier. But no, I'm not. I'd rather the entire thing not happened but, alas, people do stupid things when they're angry.

    8. media

      @Olivier Turbis +1!

    9. Wolfie

      AK, dude, that totally sucks. Hope karma pays that person back for what they did.

    10. .Peter

      @Wolfie wouldn't that be something if it worked out that way.

    11. AnthonyKinson

      Only reason i had that much on me was because i was meant to be buying an iPad. It was in my front jeans pocket too and was quite snug, i should of deffo noticed if it had fallen out or tried to of been taken. :(

  14. AnthonyKinson

    There's an unbelievable amount of swords at the royal wedding lol

    1. ZakRhyno

      You know you like it! :D

  15. AnthonyKinson

    Looks like i'll be droping Bouncy PSN.. that was a big waste of time lol

    1. AnthonyKinson

    2. emm1

      Were you working on it?

    3. AnthonyKinson

      yup, there was no front end but most of the back end stuff was done.

    4. emm1

      Cool, I'd definately buy it.

    5. Ryan Ashbrook

      Why not just wait until it's back up?

    6. .Peter

      Because they say it's going down indefinitely

    7. Ryan Ashbrook

      *sigh* Read the FAQ from Playstation itself. They specifically said it's temporary. The media are only saying "indefinite" because it's a buzzword that generates readers.

    8. c0bra

      Carry on with it!

    9. .Peter

      14. What personally identifying information do you suspect has been compromised?
      Although we are still investigating the details of this incident, we believe that an unauthorized person has obtained the following information provided by PlayStation Network/Qriocity account holders: name, address (city, state, zip), country, email address, birth date, PlayStation Network/Qriocity password, login, and handle/PSN online ID. Other profile data may also have been obtained, including purchase ...

    10. AnthonyKinson

      ahhh i only read the story from the wall street journal blog. supose i'll just wait and see how it plays out.

    11. dogpatch

      tey are rebuilding the psn from scratch with better security (duh!). they said it will take another week or so before its back online.

    12. emm1

      Hehe Sony will definately be fixing PSN, it's probably going to take a few days but it's coming back. :)

  16. AnthonyKinson

    Anybody have any thoughts on mod_mono for apache? is it worth using when .NET support is needed??

    1. Wolfie

      The mod has mono? Dude, how'd that happen? :O

    2. Connor T

      I used it for awhile, as I was testing asp stuff, but then I had to switch to Windows as there are random bugs that aren't worth fixing.

    3. AnthonyKinson

      well basically i just want to run an API service on the server, but the service is written in asp. as this is the only thing needed i dont want to fork out for a windows server just to run the one API. also heard there was a few bugs and some limitations with mod_mono. chillisoft asp doesnt seem to exist anymore either :(

    4. Andy Rixon

      Why not just purchase a VPS, and then expand if needed onto a dedicated server if it calls for more power.

    5. AnthonyKinson

      The API is just for personal use so theres no use in wasting a whole server just to run it. :(

    6. Andy Rixon

      fair enough, but wouldn't the use of the API cause any lag on the "shared" server where your customers are.

    7. AnthonyKinson

      nah theres a cluster of servers, plus it would be installed on my own website.

    8. Andy Rixon

      Oh right.

  17. AnthonyKinson

    Bouncy PSN? Oh yeah!

    1. Mat B

      You know, I distinctly recall you scoffing at the mere suggestion last year.

    2. AnthonyKinson

      i did indeed, limited the amount of external work i've done since Christmas so had more time to explore, and it's looking pretty good :)

    3. ørret

      PSN = ?

    4. AnthonyKinson

      Playstation Network.

  18. AnthonyKinson

    Hello, Who are you?

    1. Kessler

      I don't remember.

    2. proutie87


    3. Andy Rixon

      Ummmmm, I can't remember my name, ummmm.

  19. AnthonyKinson

    Youtube blocked my video because there was music playing quietly in the background. How pathetic!

    1. Jυra

      It was your taste in music. :o

    2. DarkRider

      I hate that, darn YouTube

  20. AnthonyKinson

    Honestly cannot believe how expensive things have become in the UK.

    1. JahLion

      Same in canada

    2. Herofiles ★

      lol, dont even mention Norway, we had some stats folks on tv; Norway are the most expensive country in the world! Its freaking sick!

    3. AnthonyKinson

      well the national minimum wage here in the UK is (or being raised to) £6.08 (over 20) £4.98 (18-20) £3.68 (16-17) per hour. The average price of a packet of ciggy's here is £7 / £8... so after tax and national insurance, people have to pretty much work for 2 hours to buy a packet of cig's, young smokers are pretty much screwed lol

  21. AnthonyKinson

    92% of statistics are made up on the spot.

    1. Herofiles ★

      everyone knew that :P

    2. AnthonyKinson

      24% of people were skeptical lol

    3. Ryan Ashbrook

      10% of people still don't get it.

    4. Herofiles ★

      1% have no idea what ya talking about xD

  22. AnthonyKinson

    Where do cows go on Friday nights? To the mooooovies.

    1. GundamMentall

      No, they go to the *moo*n. You know, like they jump over it ever Friday?

    2. ehren.

      Udderly terrible joke..

    3. TheRevTastic

      Nice pun Ehren :P.

    4. FaithFirst

      lame :(

    5. Jandar

      Not lame. Great joke to tell my two year old.

  23. AnthonyKinson

    Where did the status updates sidebar go :o

    1. .Ian

      probably your jokes ;)

    2. AnthonyKinson

      haha i said the same thing

  24. AnthonyKinson

    Finally rebuilt my PC with the new parts! IDLE temp is 11c :D

    1. ørret

      31c here :P

    2. Ryan H.

      That doesn't seem physically possible, unless you're living in a fridge or something.

    3. Jake Sully


    4. AnthonyKinson

      got the NZXT Phantom case. in total it has 2 x 120mm + 1 x 200mm fan on the side, 1 x 140mm fan on the from, 2 x 200mm fans on the top, and a 120mm fan on the back (7 case fans in total) rear fan and one 200mm top fan are exhausts. Then got the Arctic Cooler Freezer 13 CPU Heatsink, mounted with the fan blowing air upwards, through heatsink and out the 200mm exhaust fan lol it's icey cold, so much airflow!

    5. Ryan H.

      But it's still not possible for any conventional cooling system [even water cooling] to reach temperatures below ambient. O.o Unless you just have a really cold room.

    6. AnthonyKinson

      weird, my bio's reports the same temps too.. hmm...

    7. AnthonyKinson

      just checked with AMD Overdrive aswell, giving the same reading, although now it's settled at around 18c after being on for a couple of hours.

    8. Ryan H.

      18c is a little closer to what you might expect. How about CoreTemp?

    9. AnthonyKinson

      That was the core temp... at least thats what the screenshot shows. AMD Overdrive shows the same on each processor core.

    10. Ryan H.

      Oh, silly me. I have no idea what's going on, then.

  25. AnthonyKinson

    What did the Spanish farmer say to his chickens? Oh-lay!
