Please consider the following problem. We have some kind of questions bank which we stored in spreadsheet like Excel or anything similar. One day, we want to create an online quiz with Google Form based on the questions bank we had. How can we generate the online quiz in easy and fast way? By using Google Apps Script we can automate the task of converting the questions from Google Spreadsheet into Google Form. The script will generate the final Google Form which we can use and share to our respondents later.
Recently, I tried to find out the alternatives of how to make my Linux Mint 19 (Tara) Cinnamon Edition to be more lightweight. There are some options such as installing the light Desktop Environment (DE) such as Xfce, LXDE, or LXQt. Those DEs are bundled with their specific applications such as file managers, text editors, etc. which will also be installed. Therefore, there will be duplication of applications for each task in my system which I don't prefer. So, my decision fall to installing Fluxbox. It's only a window manager and I just have the available applications from Mint to use.
OpenStreetMap is a very good crowdsourcing map application. It has a cool feature which tag the road in the map by its type. That feature enable us to identify the type of road such as main road, pedestrian road, living street, etc. Besides that, we can also use that feature to extract only the road part from the map. This can be useful when we want to build a routing system which need the road part only.
In March 2017, a fatal security hole in IIS 6 was found. Based on the news from https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/03/31/microsoft_wont_patch_server_2003/, Microsoft has officially announced that they won't patch the security hole and recommended us to upgrate to new Windows Server immediately which has the new IIS version. But the problem is, not all people can upgrade their machines in instance.
In some cases we might need to modify the autocomplete result in Drupal 8. For example, when editing a node, in content authoring section, there is an autocomplete textfield for entering the author for the content. By default, all users will be available in the autocomplete list, but there might be a case when we need to exclude the blocked user from the list. Fortunately, we are able to do that by using one hook function called hook_query_alter.
