Be careful, this is the translation of two French articles and it’s long. Today we will be writing time in a way that is comfortable for a human reader. Who want to read, « Only 0h 00mn 18s left » at the end of a count that began an hour ago? Before, strftime() was enough. Now, time […]

Translation SQL table and translation system

Le mardi, février 10th, 2009

This is a short, non-interesting article about a translation system. Nothing new or original here. I put here because my next article will use it and it’ll be a very long one.

English version

Le lundi, juillet 28th, 2008

English blog, opened ! And it’s post number 42, which is cool. My blog needed an english version, because I put my scripts here, and it would be too sad if only french people used them.
