[wingide-users] Incremental saving.... wingide-users Digest, Vol 118, Issue 15

Just wanted to say that I use a combination of Dropbox, Mercurial, and a 
private repository on Bitbucket.

It allows for incremental backups of file changes with Dropbox, the VCS 
ideology of only commit when it's worthwhile, and gives me two remote 
backups of my projects.

If you are going to use Dropbox with Git or Mercurial I would recommend 
having a remote copy of the repository (eg. private repo at Bitbucket) 
because rarely Dropbox can screw up the local repository files if you 
are making changes on multiple computers.
