When my work’s CVS server went down earlier this week (due to a hardware failure) I quickly learned how dependent on CVS I really am. This is not a bad thing; in fact I think it’s a Good Thing ™. The server was down for less than 24 hours but I was definitely going through withdrawals.
I have officially added CVS (or whatever source control software I happen to be using) to my list of “things I can’t imagine living without”. This is an ever growing list which already contains: my car, my cell phone, my iPod, and my wife.
