Remember when web designers used to be total nerds?
Back in the early 2000s, web design was a technical skill; just getting a site to function was considered an achievement in and of itself, and things like interface design, usability, and UX largely fell by the wayside.

But, there are still a few among us who choose not to use a VCS due to preconceived notions they might have about version control.
