HI to all re.git usage and incremental saving,

Thanks for all co operation. Having spent some time re. git and various
other such systems I have decided NOT to use any of those as my requirement
is very simple and the ability to use git or other such systems require
additional knowledge which I need to acquire. It is much easier for me to
manually add new details or a number to my project name, which I have been
doing for nearly an year know. My project which is on my laptop is synced
with everything related to it in  separate folder in my Dropbox and also to
my main machine in the studio. I am the only one who works on this project
and 99% of the time and  I use my lap top to code. I am looking at bit
bucket after reading William(Foster)'s contribution and may one day in the
future use some VCS. So till then thank you very much to all for the
contributions to my request.

May you be well.
