Let's see what's up with Sencha GXT

I've been using GWT for a long time now (since it was version 1.1), and even though I looked at MyGWT, one of the first third-party widget libraries, way back when, I haven't used a third-party widget library for application in production. Just some prototypes.

Many of these third-party libraries have reached a good level of maturity since 2008 or so when I first looked at them, so I got interested in learning a bit more about the whereabouts of the former MyGWT, later called ExtGWT and now Sencha GXT.

So I'll be learning a bit more and playing with it by reading a book called ExtGWT Rich Internet Application Cookbook (see image at left). I'll make sure to let you know how it goes because I'll be writing a review. So stay tuned in the next couple of weeks.

Avoiding the ctags error with ViM

I have installed vim (well, gvim really) on a number of computers
lately, since vim is my preferred text editor. I had at some point
used the ctags library on my dev machine at my previous job, but since
I have not used it for a long time, but still present in my vim
configuration, I just need to remind myself on what to do to my
default config once I install at a new place.

The solution is to move or delete the taglist.vim file from the
plugin subdirectory under $VIM_HOME/vimfiles. I guess I could simply
delete the taglist.vim file from my master config files, but since I
might need ctags again in the future, I'll leave it there for now.
