After struggling for a long time. Finally, I have managed to get the internationalization module works as I want. the only problem is that I use the wrong block for accessing the translated page. We have to use Translation bock, not the Language Swithcer block, even though they look the same in in the appearance but it works totally different. Language switcher is just a languaeg swithcer of course. It does nothing except that letting a user select his/her prefered language and then display a content of that language only.

Drupal Access

After trying a lot of drupal access control module, the one that seems to suit my style is taxonomy access control lite (tac_lite), being able to set visibility for each vocabulary separately.

However, it does not support the entry that is already posted. I have to edit the database myself with

INSERT INTO drupal_node_access VALUES (xx,yy,'tac_lite',1,0,0);

where xx = node id and yy = group id (role id).

The result of [Cannes Lions Advertisity 2006] is out. This year there are seven Thai ad films that got gold medal. Sadly, my favorite ones, Siang Pure Oil and My Son (Thai Insurance) do not recieve any awards. Smart Purse and Black Up coffee did not submit to the festival.

If anyone got the entire archive of this year award winners, please let me know :D

After read Koh's Blog, I feel a strong surge to play FF IX (well, I havn't play it yet, even though it has been released for almost 6 years. I say I need time, but I usually eventually spend the time on other game T_T. In fact, I should concentrate on writing a journal paper. Stupid me....

No, not the Minister of Information and Communication Technology but a time zone. Whenever we set up a linux box and selecting a time zone of asia/bangkok, we would encounter with a question like "Does ICT looks sensible to you?" More lately, I was asked what is ICT from its appearance in each entry in our planet. Well, We know that ICT is the time zone of Thailand but we never know what does it stand for.

Well, wikipedia is your best friend. It turns out that ICT stands for Indochina Time. A freaking name, though.
