in reply to My preferred version control system is...

I'm a sysadmin and I use versioning for two things: development and active configs. I use subversion & CVS for stuff I'm developing (slowly migrating to svn). I use bazaar for config files.

I have scripts that run every X minutes to check in any config changes into bazaar. This way, if someone else makes an edit or if I forget to do a check-in, I have a history I can play back. If I discover that some obscure web page stopped working 2 months ago (not unlikely, some people never check their own pages), and I need to figure out what I changed, my bazaar diffs are great. I almost never actually roll back, but it's a fantastic diagnostic resource. If someone says I broke the web server and I think they broke their own web code, I can show exactly what edits I've made in the timeframe in question. It's awesome.

[Corion]: Hurr. Yesterday I played around with ffmpeg as a new toy and found its "scene" filter great - it detects scene changes. Now I could write a module that splits a given video on its cuts into different scenes. Except I have no use case for that :)
[Corion]: (and also, writing yet another FFmpeg module just to wrap system() and grep through its output isn't all that great ...)
[erix]: cut out advertisements from movies? :)
[erix]: robably not possible (or it would have been done already)
[Corion]: erix: Oooh - yeah, that would be a good application of this, true (except that I don't consume movies-with- separate- advertisements that much nowadays :) )
