Of course you can install free alternative like OpenProj or GanttProject if you need to do it offline. With Gantter, there’s nothing to install.

Last 'Titanic' survivor sells mementoes to pay for care

Millvina Dean was only two months old when the Titanic struck an iceberg on its maiden voyage and sank in 1912, but now at the age of 96 she is struggling to make ends meet and hopes to make 3,000 pounds (3,845 euros, 5,171 dollars) from the sale.

Incredibly there is still a Titanic survivor still living. But having to sell her Titantic mementos to survive is quite sad.
