I've just combined writing and work-geekiness.
When I revise stories, I try to remember to name them blah-v1.1 and blah-v1.2 etc. But I forget and then I lose the original versions.
So I decided to implement a Visual Source Safe database to hold all my fiction work. So now I can check a piece out (from either the laptop or the desktop) and work on it, and then check it in, and the original version is preserved as well. It also makes having a backup set of files easy because I do a "get latest" from the desktop and it pulls current copies of everything from the laptop's database to the desktop. So if the laptop goes kerplooey, then I don't lose everything!
Hey, I'm a geek, but I'm happy. *grins*Posted by Deb Atwood at July 02, 2003 11:15 PM | TrackBack
