in thread My preferred version control system is...

Branching is simply a necessary evil when distributing releases to a user-base. This is because you will want to work on the next major release while still being able to produce patches for past releases. It is likely that you will want to merge your patch into the next release at some point, but that is a subsequent task to developing the patch in the first place.

[hippo]: Hope everyone else is enjoying their lunch too.
[1nickt]: However, note that it takes between 2 and 4 hours for a tick to be able to start transmitting bacteria. So even if it has burrowed in and started eating, if you get it soon you should be OK.
[perldigious]: 1nickt: No more red meat! It would be more humane to just kill you, wouldn't it! :-)
[1nickt]: Just don't make it barf.
[1nickt]: perldigious that's exactly what my stepson says.
[1nickt]: the tick that can make you a vegetarian
[perldigious]: Your Mother: Yeah, I have a tool for ticks that I use (mostly on my dogs thankfully), but it's just a cheapo one I got from my vets office... it works pretty good though.
