Feedback and Ideas  - 
Strange issue. I have a plugin that has its own element type. This element type has its own sub type which has the corresponding FieldLayout for the element type.

I can create a new element with this element type within my plugin's interface, but it always ends up generating a task in craft_tasks that fails to complete stating that the session directory is not writable, failing on session_write_close().

Side Effects:
After this event is triggered once, we get logged out of the CP immediately on the next page request. We can log back in only to be logged out again on the next page request.

Work around:
Only way for me to resolve this issue, is to delete the record created for the element in craft_tasks manually. Then everything works properly again.

- We encounter no other permissions issues on craft/storage/* except when this event occurs.
- This occurs even in if I have memcached (pecl-memcache) setup as the cache method.

I appreciate any thoughts.

+Brad Bell Hey Brad, I wanted to report back, that the issue persisted even with MySql 5.6 so it is not a mariadb / mysql compatibility issue. I still don't have a fix for the issue. Did I mention before that I am using memcache?

Question. We have a multi-locale configured instance we are trying to work with.

In our repo and local dev, we have /craft, /locale1, /locale2. For local development, we control CRAFT_SITE_URL via vhost environment variables and each locale has a separate vhost. When we deploy it to staging server, I have a phing build script that sends a copy of the craft directory to each webroot and each locale folder as public.

Staging works fine. For some reason local dev, the site loads fine, the admin login loads fine. When I try to login, it works. As soon as I click anything within admin dashboard I am redirected back to the login screen.

I am pretty new to craft, any suggestions on where to look first?

For local dev, we do. For deploying to production, we deploy that single craft directory to each webroot for simplicity of managing it on a shared webhost for the client.

I will tinker with the localization setup to see if I cannot figure it out. If you think of anything else, please let me know.

Well said.
This is the big story in tech today: 


I'm just going to post my thoughts on this. Standard disclaimer: They are my own thoughts, and not those of my employer.

Fuck these guys. 

I've spent the last ten years of my life trying to keep Google's users safe and secure from the many diverse threats Google faces.

I've seen armies of machines DOS-ing Google. I've seen worms DOS'ing Google to find vulnerabilities in other people's software. I've seen criminal gangs figure out malware. I've seen spyware masquerading as toolbars so thick it breaks computers because it interferes with the other spyware.

I've even seen oppressive governments use state sponsored hacking to target dissidents.

But even though we suspected this was happening, it still makes me terribly sad. It makes me sad because I believe in America. 

Not in that flag-waving bullshit we've-got-our-big-trucks-and-bigger-tanks sort of way, but in the way that you can looked a good friend who has a lot of flaws, but every time you meet him, you think, "That guy still has some good ideas going on".

But after spending all that time helping in my tiny way to protect Google -- one of the greatest things to arise from the internet -- seeing this, well, it's just a little like coming home from War with Sauron, destroying the One Ring, only to discover the NSA is on the front porch of the Shire chopping down the Party Tree and outsourcing all the hobbit farmers with half-orcs and whips. 

The US has to be better than this; but I guess in the interim, that security job is looking a lot more like a Sisyphus thing than ever. 


Also of note, this article from September may call some recent technical decisions into relief:

Hi, I am attempting to pull activity data for a public page, yet it returns zero items despite there being many public posts on the profile. Any idea what might be wrong?

My kids play this all the time, $3.99 is a good price.

I am in the process of working on a screencast or two on Ingress related topics, when they are ready, I will also be giving away a few invites to Ingress. So, lookout for an announcement in the next week or two.

In the meantime, I noticed Minecraft for Android is on sale at Amazon for $3.99, normally it is $6.99.
