If you visit my XenForo Addon forum, https://xf-liam.com, often, you may have noticed that I stopped accepting PayPal and am now accepting credit/debit cards directly for add-on purchases.
The reason? It’s easier and much more secure – the charging is done on the server, and data cannot be edited by the viewing user. This also makes it an instant purchase – you’re redirected to your licenses instantly.
Stripe was actually really easy to integrate. The hard part was integrating their Stripe.js library with XenForo without breaking everything
So, why not go and try my new system and tell me what you think?
You may have noticed the theme change…
Let me know what you think.
School becomes part-time from Monday, meaning I only have to go in for lessons I have not had all my exams for, so:
- Further Maths
- Computer Science
This is actually rather annoying, due to my timetable… Take Monday for example, period 1 I have Chemistry, whereas I have Further Maths period 5 (last period). So, I would have to be in period 1 and period 5… But non in-between!
Anyhow, I have 5 exams left – 2 chemistry, 2 further maths & 1 computer science. One of the Chemistry exams is on Tuesday (10th June), and the Computer Science exam is on Thursday (12th June).
My last exam is on Friday 20th, with the leaver’s assembly on the Monday after (23rd June), and finally the prom is on the 26th (the Thursday).
So, all in all, I’ll have finished everything and can go on holiday 2 weeks on Thursday
It’s been a strange year… Loads of things have changed – I being one of them. I’m certain my personality has changed… For the better? I’m not sure, probably.
Anyhow, on with the final exams and then revision
I got a capsule in a hack today…
It’s been slow. I’ve not really paid much attention to this site, although I do still own it…
So, depending on where you are and have been, you will probably know that the clocks went forward this morning (in England at least).
It completely screws with my body clock when that happens :/ I didn’t get out of bed until after 11, because it felt like 10!
XF Liam has now been up and running for a good month or so, and it is doing wellish. It’s a site for my addons, to provide support etc.
It’s working well, and I like it – it makes for a good testing ground

So, as anyone that knows me will know, I play Ingress religiously.
The issue I’ve been having is that Barrow has been taken over by the Enlightened It is becoming really difficult for me to play, and quite frankly I’m unsure as to whether or not it is still worth playing – It’s taking loads of my time and effort, for nothing really.
Anyhow, I just needed to slightly rant.
So, if you visit my forum, Ingress Experts, you will have noticed that I have updated the powering software to the latest beta version.
I use XenForo for the forum, and I have complete faith in the small XenForo developer team, so much so that I am willing to use a beta software in production.
I haven’t found any major bugs (which is a really good thing!).
If you haven’t visited my forum yet, then you should! It’s a nice place to be
Apologies for the recent downtime, I attempted to install MariaDB and it failed.
All back up now though
So, my birthdays long gone (it was on Tuesday…), and it was pretty much uneventful.
I got three presents, a Nexus 5 (yes, the phone), a box of Maltesers and a Chocolate Orange Sphere thingy (you know the one I’m on about?).
The day was pretty normal – I went to school etc. After school, we all went out to The Furness Railway, which is a Weatherspoon Pub.
It was an OK day, and I like my Nexus 5
