When I saw the new Source Gear ‘evil mastermind’ t-shirts, I had to have one for my nerd warddrobe. So I struck a Faustian bargain with Source Gear mastermind Eric Sink. The photo below is part of the bargain. Sorry about that.
Given that version control isn’t the most wildly exciting of topics (no offense intended) I think their comic book campaign is a very imaginative piece of marketing. I wish them every success with it. While I am plugging Source Gear I should mention that they offer a free one-developer licence for Vault. This could be very useful for microISVs out there looking for a source control tool. So far I am pretty happy with Subversion, apart from the ‘don’t come crying to me for help’ approach to merging branches.
Have I earnt my t-shirt yet Eric? This blog has also earned me one sale of PerfectTablePlan and a couple of dollars in referral fees from e-junkie. At this rate I will soon be able to retire from programming to blog full time. Watch out Scoble.
