Drupal has pretty good multilingual support out of the box. It's also fairly easy to create new entities and just add translation support through the annotation. These things are well documented elsewhere and a quick search will reveal how to do that. That is not what this post is about. This post is about the UX around selecting which fields are translatable.
Part of me is suspecting that I may be one of the lucky 10,000 today but I figure it's worth putting this out there because if I wasn't aware of this then there may be others too. It turns out that the version of Drush that you just installed may not be the version of Drush that executes your command.
So, as it turns out, the horrible landlords who have for all intents and purposes stolen the property of local artists by not letting anyone at all have access to PhotonFlux have decided that we were only allowed 8 people in the building and we only got one hour to get what we could. This isn't even vaguely reasonable. But, from everything I've heard about Cho Yam Chan and Julie-anne Daysh, this is not out of character. These people are genuinely despicable, untrustworthy people.
My experiences of G+ were very different than some I've seen described. So different that I had to wonder how these people were using it.
I look at the shit that happens around the world and am, for the most part, numbed to it.
I live in New Zealand. It's a tiny little bit of not quite paradise at the arse end of the planet that feels lucky if we get included on maps of the fucking world.
All this shit... It happens to "other people" that are "a long way away". It happens in countries that are fucked up due to their own internal issues. Issues that spill over into other areas and other countries but, for the most part, issues that they have a had in in one way or another.
This morning a hand written note was posted next to the trespass notice in the door at 178 Victoria Street. What Julia-anne Daysh and Cho Yam Chan don't see to understand is that the damage was already done. They had illegally evicted their tenants. They had killed a local business. They had screwed over Anton and Nina, the other staff, local artists and local breweries.
We finally have permission to go in and get the property that Cho Yam Chan and Julie-anne Daysh have been illegally holding since the illegal trespass notice was posted. We're going in next Wednesday.
Cho Yam Chan and Julie-anne Daysh are the directors of Camjec Commercial Ltd. They are the owners of the building that PhotonFlux currently runs in. This morning I was on my way to work and I found this on the door at PhotonFlux. I sent a copy of it to Nina and Anton, the owners of PhotonFlux, and it was the first they had heard of it.
