My System Specs


Yep I remember working for a research group that used Dropbox; a few members were working on some MS Word documents and software together and they were conflicting all over the place. Apparently someone decided to ditch VCS in favour of Dropbox (ah academia, I love you so much...)
When I was asked to write code for them, I, dusted off a workstation they had in storage, and set up a Subversion server + backups on it (I would've set up distributed VCS but they were using all kinds of platforms and dev environments so I opted for a platform that supported all the stuff they used.)
