Installing WEBSVN on Ubuntu

The first thing to do is install Subversion and apache package for Subversion. All I need to do is: sudo aptitude install subversion libapache2-svn In the next step I need to create a directory where my repositories will be stored. In my case /var/sourcecontrol/svn/. The default location is /var/lib/svn/. This command will create de directory where all my repositories will be: sudo mkdir /var/sourcecontrol/svn After create the directory I copied my entire repository backup from windows into this directory. Note if I need to create new repositories I just had to do: sudo svnadmin create /var/sourcecontrol/svn/newRepository newRepository is the name of the new repository. Next I need to change the owner of the files in order to access using apache. This can be done with this command: sudo chown www-data:www-data  /var/sourcecontrol/svn/repositoryName -R repositoryName is the name of the repository. Next I just need to configure all my repositories to be access in apache. This can be do…

Portal = Fun!

Avast! If ye haven't played Portal yet (like me) and want to get it cheap, you have to hurry. It is still free for a few more hours on Steam. I really don't know why I hadn't given it a go before, but it is really something different from all of the shooters out there.

Love the AI and how it sometimes just fails to function properly - adds a lot to the game. And I mean the AI character that guides you through the game, not some kind of mobiles (haven't seen any thus far).

Speaking of games, I have also tried the new Adventure World on Facebook (by Zynga) and have to admit that it is highly polished and a lot of fun... Until you reach level 4 and run out of energy very quickly. Oh well, it's free and nobody forced me to buy anything to advance, so I'll keep playing it for a few days.

In other news, Twisty Passage needs some more attention, but I am really struggling with coding on the laptop keyboard. I will go into town on Saturday and buy myself a proper keybo…

It's A Brave New World

Just letting the world know that I am re-reading this classic after buying the Soma shirt from The Affair. Awesome threads to go with the awesome read.

Twisty Passages Development Update

Finally finding some more time to work on Twisty Passages after my move from the UK to Germany. It's amazing how your surroundings affect your development attitude. Couldn't really be bothered to start working without a proper desk, a comfy chair and also some ease-of-mind. Still missing a proper keyboard, but since the laptop has a fully-fledged keyboard it should not be so bad until I can get my awesome keyboard from the UK.

 I have a few cool ideas for Twisty Passages, including a periodical section (authors write one chapter and offer several options for readers to vote on). Will try to finish a rough version of this and then move on to "The Chase", which I will detail a little bit more once I start the development on that.

 Oh and I am really upset with Amazon. My UK Kindle's experimental browser worked fine when I moved over from the UK to Germany (I can prove it, since I showed one of my new co-workers how Facebook looks on its browser), but since a coupl…
