And here are the two last pony bits

I’m done (for now) I promise, those are the last two remaining bits in the serie. The western bit is huge, so huge i actually included a neck “up” pose to prevent it from poking through the avatar’s chest.

To be worn with, or without posture collar 🙂

And a last round of bits before the weekend!

This has been a very “loaded” week when it comes to KDC products. I wonder if small numerous releases are better than large ones.

Hell I’m actually going to make a poll about this, and let the “voice of the people” tell me what it thinks!

As before, 3 more bits in various styles, enjoy 🙂

Third batch is out, 3 more pony bits.

3 more designs out, the Liverpool with a spoon mouthpiece, the 4rings english style with a jointed mouthpiece and the classic look but with a straight metal mouthpiece.

Second batch out, 3 more bits!

And 3 more for my ponyplay fans, this time introducing the straight bar style, with another spoon bit and the most iconic rubber bit that there is 🙂

3 New PonyPlay bits released!

Finally they are ready for release!

  • Liverpool Rubber bit: I always loved how the liverpool chanks looked, there is something very stylish and industrial to them. Combined with a rubber mouthpiece, this makes for an alternate, yet comfy looking bit.
  • 4Rings Spoon bit: The 4Ring style is another alternate english chank design that i thought was elegant and “light looking”. This one is equipped with the very infamous spoon bit. It’s a very restrictive design, I own one in real life and having so much metal in your mouth makes it very uncomfortable and drool-tastic (is that even a word?).
  • Classic Split Metal bit: This is the “light” style, for those who find the english lever bits too “busy looking”, with a split metal mouthpiece, which is pretty much your standard horse bit.

As usual, available from the KDC Main shop in Dead Realm from any of my satellite vendors, or from the KDC Marketplace store.

Enjoy 🙂

Quick update on the bits

I forgot 4 styles so I still have this to do that and I’m working on preparing the product pictures.

Weekend server work.

I just spent most of friday and saturday fixing a problem with my web server. For the non tech savvy, most typical web servers are composed of 3 distinct parts that must work together to produce your average dynamic content website:

  • The web server itself (Apache in my case): responsible for delivering and presenting the pages aswell as receiving the user inputs.
  • The database server (Mysql for example): responsible of storing, retrieving and performing database operations.
  • The script engine (PHP ): this vary from language to language, but in essence, it is producing most of the dynamic content on a website.

Those are essentially 3 completely independent pieces of software that are glued together.

Now back to my problem. I am running a multi site setup, which means several websites are running on the same machine, to do this cleanly, I was using an apache module called mpm_itk that allows me to neatly separate each distinct site on its own apache/php instance.

Since about a week we have encountered problems, with instances segfaulting (that’s the technical term for crashing 🙂 ). apparently the problem was due to the php module we where using, it is prone to crash when running in a prefork system like this one.

To overcome this we moved to php_fpm, which runs the php script engine separately from the web server, what’s even better is that we can run several “pools” of it, one for each site, all we have to do is to specify the socket for each site in each virtual host configuration file.

For those who are interested by this alternative to the regular php module.
