More CVS

Eric Sink on why even sad lonely developers might want to use source code control:

It's an undo mechanism…
It's a historical archive…
It's a reference point for diff…
It's a backup…
It's a journal of my progress…
It's a server…

I enabled the CVS server in Mac OS X some time ago. Given that we still have no source code control at work, and that I lost a whole load of my Java experiments when I got locked out of my XP machine recently, I think it's now time I started using the Mac as my personal / work CVS repository. God knows I've talked about it often enough
