Internationalization fever

“Because God got angry at some point in time, computer programmers are forced to deal with localisation and internationalisation.” (From a typo3 tutorial.)

That’s a cool sentence, and the point I laughed about it is gone long time ago. The last days I spent with i18n for my “Usn’s web site (http://www.usn-online.de)“. (I don’t consider this IT blog being a homepage, it’s more or less a public note pad.)

Let me tell you, typo3 is ugly, i18n is ugly, and my unnamed (non-Oracle) web database backend is ugly as well. Without the help-to-help-myself from Maxi (typo3) and TheBonsai (general coding), it would have been a complete mess and waste of time. But sometimes, a quick, customized explanation (aka personal tutorial) immensely speeds up the process. Poor olde brain. :)

Thanks a lot, guys!
