Drupal 6 features new methods for making your site multilingual. Content language can be defined by a path prefix (
example.com/nl/about for a Dutch about page) or by a domain (
example.nl/about for the same page). However, lots of people think this is not flexible enough. They want users to be able to use an interface language of their choice, independent of the content language. I'm one of those people, so I decided to take a shot.
I am pleased to say that once again Drupal will be present at FOSDEM, held at February 7 and 8. We (as in the Drupal project) have been appointed a dev room for Sunday, between 9 and 5 o'clock GMT+1.
People may now propose or request talks at groups.drupal.org. I have proposed a talk about Taxonomy: the differences between conventional categorisation and Taxonomy, the differences between Drupal releases and how core and contributed modules may be used to apply, manipulate and browse it.

Op 31 oktober 2008 verzorgen Bèr Kessels en Erik Stielstra een Drupal kennismakingsworkshop tijdens de Drupal gebruikersbijeenkomst op de Avans Hogeschool te Breda. Tijdens deze workshop zal met Drupal een persoonlijke blog worden gebouwd.
Vandaag is mijn vader overleden aan de gevolgen van longkanker. Aangezien (long)kanker een vreselijke ziekte is heb ik besloten alle opbrengsten van de Adsense-reclames op deze site te doneren aan KWF Kankerbestrijding. Wil je wel meehelpen tegen kanker, maar gewoon een bedrag doneren? Doneer dan online!
Today my father died of lung cancer. Because (lung) cancer is a terrible disease I decided to donate all money received through the Adsense advertisements on this website to the KWF Kankerbestrijding, a Dutch organisation that is the main force behind research on cancer in the Netherlands.
Just found the rest of the people I was supposed to visit PICNIC with. Will keep you posted on the presentations for this afternoon!
We went outside for a walk past several artists and designers presenting their work in tents. I had the privilige of listening to satellites using Yolande Harris' GPS headphones. At the moment we're taking a break at the waterside, since this afternoon's special will not begin for another twenty minutes.
You will probably speak and write a language that's written left to right. In fact, most languages are written that way. I think it would be an accurate guess to say that a lot of software doesn't support bi-directional text, because it was developed in a Western country or at least a country where they use a left-to-right language. This is the cause for a relatively large problem: this kind of software is unusable. What can we do about it?
A few weeks ago Erik Stielstra started an issue to improve Header Image's help section. The two of us spent some time on one of his ideas: dynamic help. Our goal was to create a list of configuration steps that are important to set up Header Image. All steps that weren't executed yet would have to be marked in some way.
