Licensing

what would be the formula?

Lifespan:

i would prefer a lifetime license, for some reasons:

1- less tracking of expired licenses
2- less obligations from buyers
3- we will never be opened for 50 years anyway

Restrictions:

one single site?… if our script is multi-site management, sure it have to be… but if we have a one-site version, it have to be restricted someway?
you want to track all these installations ?!… i do not want to play the police on the internet, i hate being tracked also… callback is a stupid logic. so i would tend to let this restriction go.

i would prefer having the CORE completely free, or a minimal fee, and do like all millionaire coders… they code custom and exclusive works for their clients, having a better income.

if from the start we have a free available core that can be installed anywhere at any range, AND offer a wide range of paid modules and addons to satisfy all the needs, the clients will come and grab only the addons they want. if we restrict the engine to be narrowed to restrictions, we will close our market only to a specific client range.

having a free CORE also open the door for outsiders… coders who are interested to share their work but also have their own clients and control their own market… so we would have dev keys ?

Free Identification:

the only restriction i can think of is very simple… if you download the CORE from our site, you can receive support/modules.

an encoded ID for the site you want to add the core to is provided in the download, so we can easily identify that your version of the core was downloaded from our site. no need to trackback or callback …

that give us the flexibility to let other coders give the CORE to their clients and provide themselve the support their clients deserve… elsewhere!

elsewhere?!:

with the idea inserted above, we can provide some coders with a developper key and the script that let them generate their own support ID… compare this with Jelsoft.. they do not share their user table, and refuse to let other companies have support forums with the word vbulletin in it… you have hard time finding an officially supported vb site

so if we provide this system, other developpers can become official key developpers to the project, at a cost, and can resell our existing addons with a % of profit… they can have their own site for support, or part of our site for their own work. we can also link their clients to our database if they quit…

we do not have to support the clients of these developpers until these developpers abandon these clients. but these clients can buy our products and be supported by these developpers… giving the developpers a wider range of clients, as the clients can choose who will be their support staff or so.. 🙂

Forum Lifespan – phase 1

This tool is at its startup, but may grow with the clients needs.

The main goal of this feature is to identify the new forums date of birth and the old forum’s first post date.

When you first install this product, it will create a new entry in the forum table, and will check for each existing forum’s first post date to be entered in the database. By then, each time you create a new forum, a timestamp will be added. (we can not track the original date of creation of the existing forums, so we use the oldest post/thread created in them to tag these forums)

So with this first version, what you can do is verify the date of creation/birth of each of your forums. This is very useful when you have tons of forums and they are created in different moments.

So if you want to know when forum X was created compared to forum Y, you simply have to hover on its title, like here:

nex_forum_lifespan.jpg

This is a first stage of development for this tool, so maybe the only thing you can do with it is to verify if a forum worth to be kept after X months… but i plan adding some features to it, like global stats to compare the activity of all the forums, but they would not require more database edits than required…

This product is self installed, there is no template edit, and you can deactivate it or uninstall it without breaking anything on your forum.

Zebra Striped Collection

The collection of all known modifications to make your site striped in all situations.

Alternating the who’s online bits and giving them a certain look instead of the bloat version provided within vBulletin was for me a little pleasure…

i like styles in things… it now alternate the rows instead of the columns. making it easier to read, easier to locate each member…

so here is the default version:

nex_zebra_whosonlinebit_before.jpg

and my new version, with alternate bits and colors for specific usages… you can see the legend of these colors below the list, and you can change these colors per style, at your will.

nex_zebra_whosonlinebit_css.jpg

as a note, this product is active without any file or template edit… a single product upload and tada…

Forumbit Tool Icons

To enhance the visitors’ experience, you can add some quick tools to your forum display. You can see these icons here on nexialys.net, and here is a clear screenshot of what they look like:

nex_forumbit_toolicons.jpg

As you see the 4 icons, and here what they are: (the title appear when you hover on them)

– create new thread in that forum
– list new posts/threads in that forum
– subscribe to that forum
– RSS Feed for that forum

… they are all permission based, so if you have no permission to post, the icon New Thread will not show… same for the search and subscribe.

As usual, that modification is without any code or template edits.

The icons are copyrighted, but you can change them when you want… you can also edit the template « forumhome_forumbit_toolicons » to make it look the way you want… like adding a border, or making them vertical instead of horizontal…

If you have Cyb Subforums Manager, you will have to edit the forumbit templates to your taste…

This tweak is better used if you drop the Threads/Posts columns in your forumbits templates.

Fleetwood mac – Little lies

« si nous avions la chance, peut-être que nous ferions différemment la prochaine fois. Mais puisqu’on ne peut pas, il faut juste continuer son chemin. tu peux continuer de me mentir, et je vais faire semblant de te croire, parce qu’en fait tu n’es plus dans ma vie. »

If I could turn the page

In time then I’d rearrange just a day or two

Close my, close my, close my eyes

But I couldn’t find a way

So I’ll settle for one day to belive in you

Tell me, tell me, tell me lies

Tell me lies

Tell me sweet little lies

(Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)

Oh, no, no you can’t disguise

(You can’t disguise, no you can’t disguise)

Tell me lies

Tell me sweet little lies

Although I’m not making plans

I hope that you understand there’s a reason why

Close your, close your, close your eyes

No more broken hearts

We’re better off apart let’s give it a try

Tell me, tell me, tell me lies

Tell me lies

Tell me sweet little lies

(Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)

Oh, no, no you can’t disguise

(You can’t disguise, no you can’t disguise)

Tell me lies

Tell me sweet little lies

If I could turn the page

In time then I’d rearrange just a day or two

Close my, close my, close my eyes

But I couldn’t find a way

So I’ll settle for one day to belive in you

Tell me, tell me, tell me lies

Tell me lies

Tell me sweet little lies

(Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)

Oh, no, no you can’t disguise

(You can’t disguise, no you can’t disguise)

Tell me lies

Tell me sweet little lies

(Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)

Oh, no, no you can’t disguise

(You can’t disguise, no you can’t disguise)

Tell me lies

Tell me sweet little lies

(Tell me, tell me lies)

Stiltskin – Inside

Ce retour sur la période grunge nous est chanté par un groupe tout nouveau à l’époque qui nous dit que malgré nos handicaps et l’image que les gens ont de nous, il est important de ne pas se bloquer aux jugements, et de laisser sortir ce que nous sommes.

Swing low

In a dark glass hour

You turn and cower

See it turn to dust

Move on a sone dark night

We take to fight

Snowfall turns to rust


Seam in a fusing mine

Like a nursing rhyme

Fat man start to fall

Long year in a hostile place

I hear your face start to call


And if you think

That I’ve been loosing my way

That’s because I’m slightly blinded

And if you think

That I don’t make too much sense

That’s because

I’m broken minded


Don’t keep it …

Inside

If you believe it

Don’t keep it all inside


Strong words

In a ganges sky

I have to lie

Shadows move in pairs

Ring out from a bruised postcard

In the shooting yard

Looking through the tears

Out of the black slate time

We move in line

But never reach an end


Fall in a long stray town

As the ice comes round

River starts to bend


And if you think

That I’ve been loosing my way

That’s because I’m slightly blinded

And if you think

That I don’t make too much sense

That’s because

I’m broken minded


Don’t keep it …

Inside

If you believe it

Don’t keep it all inside

John Mayer – Dreaming With A Broken Heart: Bebop

resilience after the loved one is gone. le plus beau vidéo de cette chanson vient d’un fan de Cowboy Bebop où on voit l’amour entre Spike et Julia, Julia qui mourut très tôt, et Spike qui termine la série avec brillot, pour venger sa femme.

je dédie cette chanson à Thalie, qui est décédée dans mes bras en juin 1992, atteinte de méningite fulgurante. j’ai toujours vu cette chanson comme une vérité que tout le monde veut voir, c’est à dire avoir une façon de faire revenir l’être aimée à tout prix. j’aurais bien aimé pouvoir la rammener à la vie pour lui offrir ces roses.

Thalie was lean, sexy, blonde and romantic. just like Julia… just like i was like Spike at that time. for a long time i thought it would be possible to bring her back by offering her some roses, as she liked them when she was by my side.

Ma femme a bien voulu nommer ma fille Thalie, née en juin 2011… je crois que mon deuil est terminé.

When you’re dreaming with a broken heart

The waking up is the hardest part


You roll out of bed and down on your knees

and for a moment you can hardly breathe

Wondering was she really here

Is she standing in my room?


No, she’s not

cause she’s gone, gone, gone, gone, gone.


When you’re dreaming with a broken heart

The giving up is the hardest part


She takes you in with her crying eyes

then all at once you have to say goodbye

wondering could you stay my love

will you wake up by my side?


No, she can’t

cause she’s gone, gone, gone, gone, gone.


Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?

Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?

Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?

Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my, roses in my hands?

Would you get them if I did?


No, you won’t

Cause you’re gone, gone, gone, gone, gone.


When you’re dreaming with a broken heart

the waking up is the hardest part.

Raphael – La Ballade Du Pauvre

la fin de la vie, vu par un clochard qui habite sur le coin de la rue chez Raphael.

Je suis là chaque matin

comme ça sur le chemin

à regarder le jour qui va et qui vient

à tendre la main


Et je vis sous un pont

probable que j’aime pas les maisons

ma vie je l’ai quittée

c’était il y a longtemps

peut-être un été


Ô mon vieux je suis noir

et du soir au matin

plein comme une malle-cabine

raide comme un passe-lacet

je connais même plus mon nom


Je n’restarai pas trop tard

j’aime mieux aller ailleurs

là où ce s’rait pas pire peut-être même meilleur

on peut toujours rêver


Non non non non

bien content de partir

non non non non

j’espère ne pas revenir


Ils m’ont trouvé un matin

raide comme un parchemin

avec dans les poches

deux trois souvenirs

rien d’autre qu’une broche


M’ont mené en camion

dans un genre de maison

où ils m’ont disséqué mon vieux

Tu pouvais pas t’nir guère plus longtemps

qu’ils disaient qu’ils disaient qu’ils disaient

c’est pas brillant


Non non non non

bien content de partir

non non non non

j’espère ne pas revenir


Je suis là chaque matin

comme ça sur le chemin

à regarder la vie qui va et qui vient

qui colle à la peau


Et je m’en vais ce soir

je finirai bien quelque part

loin des lits en papier de mes pieds blessés

de leurs cheminées noires

du vent du soir

non non non non…

James Blunt – Goodbye My Lover

hollowed man after the loved one is gone.

Did I disappoint you or let you down?

Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?

‘Cause I saw the end before we’d begun,

Yes I saw you were blinded and I knew I had won.


So I took what’s mine by eternal right.

Took your soul out into the night.

It may be over but it won’t stop there,

I am here for you if you’d only care.


You touched my heart you touched my soul.

You changed my life and all my goals.

And love is blind and that I knew when,

My heart was blinded by you.


I’ve kissed your lips and held your head.

Shared your dreams and shared your bed.

I know you well, I know your smell.

I’ve been addicted to you.


Goodbye my lover.

Goodbye my friend.

You have been the one.

You have been the one for me.


I am a dreamer but when I wake,

You can’t break my spirit – it’s my dreams you take.

And as you move on, remember me,

Remember us and all we used to be


I’ve seen you cry, I’ve seen you smile.

I’ve watched you sleeping for a while.

I’d be the father of your child.

I’d spend a lifetime with you.


I know your fears and you know mine.

We’ve had our doubts but now we’re fine,

And I love you, I swear that’s true.

I cannot live without you.


Goodbye my lover.

Goodbye my friend.

You have been the one.

You have been the one for me.


And I still hold your hand in mine.

In mine when I’m asleep.

And I will bear my soul in time,

When I’m kneeling at your feet.


Goodbye my lover.

Goodbye my friend.

You have been the one.

You have been the one for me.


I’m so hollow, baby, I’m so hollow.

I’m so, I’m so, I’m so hollow.
