10 Days before Joomla! 1.5 Beta is scheduled to release, just thought about posting some Joomla! 1.0.11 relevant topics (mental note: don’t ask why).

Joomla! 1.0.11 Security Configuration Instructions

Known issues 1.0.11 Sunbow

.. that should pretty much take care of Joomla! 1.0.11 problems you might be having :)

Facts about Dolphin Drive Hunts in Japan (Link)

“During drive hunts, migrating pods of dolphins and other small whales are first panicked and confused by loud banging, then herded, by the hundreds, into shallow coves and butchered, one by one, by fishermen. Every year, some 20,000 small cetaceans of several species, some of which are endangered, including bottlenose dolphins, striped dolphins, spotted dolphins, Risso‚Äôs dolphins, short-finned pilot whales, white-sided dolphins and false killer whales, are killed or taken in the drives, sometimes illegally.

This cruel and inhumane practice is sanctioned and controlled by the Government of Japan, which claims that these animals compete with the fishermen and slaughtering them is a means of pest control, but no evidence for this claim exists. The dolphins are processed and used as pet food or fertilizer, and the government is encouraging the consumption of dolphin meat. In fact, the hunts would be economically unviable without the sale of live dolphins captured during the drives to dolphinariums in Asia and elsewhere.

There is abundant scientific evidence that drive hunts inflict incredible pain and suffering on highly intelligent, self-aware, and socially complex animals. The hunts have been universally condemned on both welfare and conservation grounds, but repeated requests to end them, from the International Whaling Commission (IWC) and numerous other scientific and conservation organizations, have been ignored.

The World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA), the professional organization that represents over 1,200 zoos and aquariums around the world, and the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) in the United States, have also condemned these hunts. WAZA explicitly prohibits member organizations from procuring animals from drive hunts. Now, marine scientists, WAZA, and AZA have joined with other non-governmental organizations to bring an immediate end to drive hunting.”

This modification adds to Invision Power Board ACP (Administration Control Panel) under TOOLS & SETTINGS -> Topics, Posts and Polls -> Allow Specify Topic Time? (under “Making a Post”) option; FOR FRESH INSTALL ONLY :)

Invision Power Board version 2.1.7 and most probably future versions also.

Find

<if="can_set_close_time == 1">

Replace with

<if="can_set_close_time == 1 AND ipb.vars['post_timeset']">

Now “Specify Topic Open Time” and “Specify Topic Close Time” fields (the entire element) are not showing (by default) for User Groups defined by IPB & your ACP will have another option Allow Specify Topic Time? added to “Topics, Posts and Polls” right next to the most annoying option of all time Merge member’s concurrent posts :) Install your Invision Power Board & sing :P Translated literally from Serbian onpurpose.
