Just tried to make a local commit to a SVN repository and it returned an authorization error. I was surprised to remember that Subversion is a centralized version control system. I've been so used to using Git, which is distributed.

No Google I/O for me this year. Not selected. Sad face. :(

Anyone have any experience with the Dell XPS 13 running Ubuntu? Looks like a pretty sweet machine.

In case you missed it. LibGDX 1.0 was released today. Cool stuff.

Our cat, which I am none to pleased with at the moment, brought this little guy into the garage tonight. I didn't realize the awful screaming a terrified bunny can make. Heard the noise in the garage from inside the house and managed to stop the cat from hurting the wild bunny further.

After my wife made a number of phone calls, we all piled in the car and drove him out to a wildlife rescue. The worker said bunnies don't often survive cat bites because of the bacteria, however, she said she would put him on antibiotics and hopefully, if he isn't too badly hurt, might recover.

Cat's just doing what outdoor cats do! They're carnivores... Not much you can do to stop it short of keeping kitty indoors :(

Super proud of the Marshall Middle School 7-8th grade band. They played the national anthem at tonight's Seattle Mariner's game.

One of the biggest changes to LibGDX with the release of 1.0 is the new Gradle build and dependency management system. This afternoon I have been doing a bunch of reading on Gradle and figured I would share a few links. I am assuming you are installing Gradle on a Linux/Ubuntu box.

This is a post [1] on how to install Gradle from the files available on the Gradle.org site. This is a link to a Gradle PPA [2] for Ubuntu which contains the latest version of the package. The official versions of Gradle which come with Ubuntu are typically a few versions old.

Successfully got the gwt-gantt [1] project updated and working with GWT 2.6.0. Playing around with the code to see if it will work for a content management project I am working on.

+Oleg Ravun As the project's Web page says, the gwt-gantt chart is a core component of the Multitask project management app which is on the Chrome app store. There is obviously some functionality that was left out between what you see in the Chrome app and the code base. From what I can tell, the methods are there, however, they aren't wired up in the interface of the included demo. I had to update code around the various Cell methods to work with GWT 2.6 and uncomment code and add some in order to reproduce the screenshot you see above. There might be some areas where I substituted the wrong variables and data is not being referenced correctly so that is also a possibility. I also didn't see any code for importing Microsoft Project files like the app does, however, that wasn't a concern for me. I am looking for something I could hook into a MongoDB database and track tasks.

Like I said I could push my changes to GitHub if others wanted to take a look at it and see what we could do with it. I think making it a decent widget library and having a number of demos showcasing different ways of using it would be really cool.
