Productivity tips…

You can actually have Subversion repositories hosted on google for free… One thing to note though is that you cannot disable anonymous access. Suitable for open source projects though. I’ve been looking for a hassle-free way of giving anonymous access to some of my private repositories, this might be it!

You can get started here:

While at it, also found some super cool new iGoogle themes like this:

Desktop cube in Compiz-Fusion on Ubuntu

I’ve been using Beryl for some time now, until Feisty, to be exact. To my surprise Gutsy no longer had packages for Beryl. Luckily it has Compiz.

To access advanced settings such as the wonderful desktop cube, apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager. This will enable the menu option: System | Preferences | Advanced Desktop Effects Settings.

Also notable that after enabling the desktop cube I was not able to switch between workspaces… For that I also needed to enable the rotate cube option. Spin away!
