Long live Subversion!

I took a big step forward today. I got to know source versioning tools.
Ever since my first encounter with CVS as an undergrad at UVa., I've had an irrational fear of SVC software. I'm not exactly sure why, but it probably had to do with one of my professors, who lumped it together with the waterfall method and formal methods in the same course. And up until now, I've rarely needed to use it, and when I have, I've completely wimped out and begged other folks to do it for me. But no more. I spent three hours today getting to know a few SVC tools, especially Subversion. And, although using them daily will definitely take some getting used to, I sure am glad I did, because adding folks to this project wouldn't be possible without it.
