Put Everything Under Version Control (brief article)
reposurgeon - A tool for editing version-control repository history reposurgeon enables risky operations that version-control systems don’t want to let you do, such as editing past comments and metadata and removing commits. By Eris S. Raymond
Mostly stuff at github. Despite installing Tortoise Git, I do everything by the command-line.
SVN of a couple projects a google-code
I’ve got private git repos @ bitbucket
On local machines, I had used both CVS and SVN to store website and other change info locally.
I use Visual Source Safe at work (yikes!) and have used CVS at another job.
I have used VC on Unix for grad-work. Much of that was via Emacs.
I dumped these links when I was thinking about using github; now I’m using it almost exclusively for personal projects.
Need to mine the links to see what usefulness remains.

Unlike Tortoise CVS (which installs the standalone CVS client), the Tortoiose SVN installation does not install a standalone SVN client -- it’s all GUI, or nothing.
Ankh SVN for Visual Studio integration
I had a bad experience with Mercurial for Windows, which has a non case-sensitive file system. Mercurial is mainly designed for case-sentive file system. And so it will let you commit differently-cased names, no problem. BUT YOU CAN’T RETRIEVE THEM. ugh.
NOTE: This was back around 2010, and I believe Mercurial for Windows has been fixed since then.
