Aquia Dev Desktop

Aquia Dev Desktop

One of the Easier ways I’ve found to start running a local development setup of Drupal on Windows 10 is by using Aquia’s Dev Desktop package. Dev Desktop provides you with a working setup for Apache, Mysql, and PHP along with a running Drush command line program you can in fact run from console. This is one of the major things a person developing in Drupal needs.

Rules

One of the types of processes you will want to have setup are preconceived actions. Responses say to someone saving off a new piece of content. Or someone say, marks a forum post to be followed. Well then you have things you want to happen at that point. Actions that shouldn’t need a human there to execute. In Drupal 7, you go to Rules for that.

Bookshelf Purpose

Welcome back to the bookshelf!

Recently I rebuilt Fanbards using the modules I created in Features in order to provide some kind of ease of use for archiving. I’ve still ended up with a ton of modules though. I’ll be working on pruning that later.

But as I have worked on this build, I have come to realize that a lot of what I did on this site might not be reasonably included in a feature set meant to be general enough for every possible use case.

Fourteen Years ago – Eight Months After ‘Near Third Impact’

Misato Katsuragi stared through the observation window at the girl in the room. She was sat on the edge of the freshly made bed and staring straight ahead at the wall, an eyepatch covering her left eye. Placed next to her was a tray upon which the remnants of a meal lay.

There was no expression on the girls face, just a blank stare. Sadly Misato turned to face the blonde doctor stood next to her.

There were behind schedule by around half a day or so thanks to the incident with Rei yesterday. After the events that had transpired an attempt had been made at progressing further but due to Rei not regaining consciousness they had only managed an hour or so of carrying her before Asuka made the decision to give up.

A change had been observed by Rei in both Asuka and Shinji over the course in the morning. It was a subtle change but Rei had noticed it. Asuka was still leading Shinji by the hand as she had done the previous days but instead of pulling him along or leading him it seemed more mutual, they were walking in closer proximity to one another.

It was still dark when Shinji woke up. He looked around the tent. Rei was lying some distance away from him facing away from them. Asuka was however closer with her arm draped across him. He gently moved it off of him as he sat up, his bladder calling him to relieve himself.

Asuka, much to her surprise was the first to wake up. It would be around 0630 AM now, she had nothing to tell her that but she knew it. She had had nearly fourteen years of waking up at that exact time. Still she was surprised that she was the first to wake up. She had expected Shinji or the clone to have woken up before her. She sat up being careful to not wake the others and glanced down at Shinji.

She looked across the red wasteland, it was hard to believe that fourteen years ago a once proud city once stood here. Hundreds of thousands of people once inhabited these lands, buildings stretched up into the sky. Battles were won and lost here and now it had all but been reduced to a wasteland. This place had once been a fortress to secure mankind. The home of NERV and their biomechanical weapon Evangelion.

Commander Potter of the Starship Ascension : Chapter 1 - The Next Great Adventure By: C.W. Smith

Thu, 11/24/2016 - 16:23
Summary:

The Next Great Adventure is closer then you think

Seven years, had it only been seven years since he had finished off that snake faced bastard? It had been one hardship after another hoisted onto the young mans shoulders. So many lost to the war, then the second guessing, the cries for lost family and friends, the condemnations for not finishing the war fast enough. As if he should have been held responsible at the young age of seventeen for a war effort. Percy Weasley had shown his true colors not during the battle but after. Harry always felt the boy was little more then a collaborator. Not that he'd say it for Molly's sake.

: Chapter 3 - Percy the Assistant Chapter 1: I Assist Fudge By: C.W. Smith

Thu, 11/24/2016 - 16:21

Percy Weasley had been the new assistant to Minister Fudge for all of a week. It had taken him a few days to get adjusted to his new position but he planned to do the best he could at this job. He had thought he did well when working for Barty Crouch in International Cooperation, even if he ended up dead at the end of the year. Still, he was sure his work had been rewarded with this assignment.

: Chapter 2 - Judgment By: C.W. Smith

Thu, 11/24/2016 - 16:19

He had been there when the world started to change. The green fields he knew s a school boy and the forests where numerous creatures lived filled his mind. He had been forced to watch as the world died all around him. His beloved wife and children, his friends, nieces and nephews, coworkers, all trying to survive and ensure the survival of everyone. The nuclear wars later in the century had cost him most of his family. He had held Ginny's hand as she succumbed to radiation sickness.

Professor Who : Chapter 2 - The Curious Child By: C.W. Smith

Thu, 11/24/2016 - 16:11
Summary:

It's one thing to be able to travel through the whole of Time and Space, but with no one to share it with it can be so very lonely.

For over a thousand years, many people had walked through her front door, expecting it to be rather cramped inside a small Police Public Call Box and shocked at how big inside she actually was. Those companions of her Time Lord at first were always so shocked and amazed at this first impossibility smacking them in the face. The Dursley's reactions would probably had been to immediately try to have her destroyed, the abnormality purged from the universe.

Professor Who : Chapter 1 - The Lonely TARDIS By: C.W. Smith

Thu, 11/24/2016 - 16:06
Summary:

It's one thing to be able to travel through the whole of Time and Space, but with no one to share it with it can be so very lonely.

She was alone. After so long with her Time Lord he had finally succumbed to that final affliction that his kind were almost immune from. Death had taken her Time Lord. And now she was alone, truly alone in the universe. No Time Lords, no other TARDIS', no one. For a time she thought about landing somewhere and just letting herself waste away, perhaps as a piece of lore that couldn't or wouldn't be understood. Perhaps she would go to the beginning of all things and let the creation of the universe be her funeral pyre.

DeAcended : Chapter 1 - Scene cut from Chapter 4 | The 1st Terran Fleet By: C.W. Smith

Thu, 11/24/2016 - 16:00
Summary:

Scenes and Ideas that didn't make the final cut for the Ascension series.

Harry met Major Castleman on the port flight deck as his team was going over the vipers and their berths. Harry pulled out a pad he had put together as a way of maintaining contact with Lily if he was off ship. He also used it as a datapad so he could look over what was were. He was toying with an idea he had had in the garage after his companion had left. He walked over to the Major and addressed him.

"Major, how many people do you think survived out there in total?" Harry asked.

Master of Death : Chapter 1 - Linger Not Long in this World By: C.W. Smith

Thu, 11/24/2016 - 15:59
Summary:

He didn't want this. He didn't want the power, the responsibility. He just wanted to rest in peace. But even that is denied.

The final battle had taken it's toll on all sides. Death after death until the Great Hall was filled with the bodies of those who had fallen. The spirits of the dead watched as their friends and loved ones collected their bodies and slowly faded into the next world. So many dead on both sides, yet all Harry Potter could do was watch as the people he loved and cared for bent shed tears over his broken body. If anything, seeing himself laying there, cold on the stone floor, was more disturbing then anything Voldemort had ever made him witness.

Master of Death : Chapter 1 - Third Impact / Last Wizard on Earth By: C.W. Smith

Thu, 11/24/2016 - 15:58
Summary:

It was supposed to be a day of reunion, it became a day of horror.

King's Cross station was busy with rush hour commuters. It always was this time of day, with people trying to get home for an evening meal with family. This time of year was one of the few times Harry Potter and his family bothered to come to King's Cross. He and Ginny always came here on September 1 to see all the children of the family off to another year at Hogwart's, and at the end of the year to pick them up for the summer holidays. Teddy Lupin was finishing up his final year at Hogwart's, while Victorie Weasley would be finishing her fifth year.

Hellmouth Holiday : Chapter 1 - I Just Want Some Peace By: C.W. Smith

Thu, 11/24/2016 - 15:56
Summary:

After war comes the hope for a peaceful life. But the darkness doesn't die as easily as we hope.

The house had been abandoned for years. The real estate agent that had sold it had been pretty shocked when the young man came in willing to buy it. He hadn't even asked about financing, just wanted to buy the house straight out. She didn't mind so much. That he was carrying around a barely one year old baby with him with the strangest looking hair didn't really matter to her. It was a good commission for her. The property was definitely what one would call a fixer upper. An old mansion that had sat dormant for the last several years on the outskirts of Sunnydale, California.

Veils : Chapter 1 - Stumbling Through By: C.W. Smith

Thu, 11/24/2016 - 15:54
Summary:

Veils between worlds become thinner at different times of the year. Some are easy to see, others however don't show whats behind them until it's too late.

"You want me to what?" Edward asked in a confused tone.

"I want you to go out west and check some ruins that were just uncovered. I don't think it has anything related to your research, but the head archaeologist on site is an old friend. He requested the best Alchemist I had when it came to ancient dialects and that is you," Mustang said over the phone. Al was talking to Pinako while Winry was working on Edward's right arm. They had been in the neighborhood when Ed's automail started to act up. At least that was what they had told Mustang when he asked.

It was calm and still, and she hadn't felt anything to disturb this sort of peaceful existence for she knew not how long. The stillness, the quiet, the darkness had filled her for a while now. Time had lost all meaning a while back, and until now she hadn't even felt the need to move. It was like when you just wake up, and all you wanted to do was lay there and ignore the world beyond the soft touch of the blanket. Though even then, there comes a time where you just have to start moving and seize the day before you.

"Unit-02 just went silent!" Lt. Makato cried out. The situation was dire, all the Evangelions had been bested by this Angel. Asuka had been their last hope. Misato was ready to activate the self destruct and blow the Angel, and by extension everyone in the city, straight to Hell.

"Do not activate Self-Destruct. I have a backup plan," Commander Ikari said. Everyone looked up at him stunned. Even Fuyutsuki was shocked as Ikari walked out of the room. He tailed behind him trying to catch up.

He'd rather welcome his end with a picture of Yui and a bottle of scotch.
