CVS

CVS (Concurrent Versions System, https://www.cvshome.org/) is absolutely amazing! Totally changes the way I program. Keeps track of my changes across multiple computers much better (laptop, home, school). Keeps my changes together so I can remember what I did and when.

It's a little cumbersome at first and requires a bit of a learning curve, but it's definitely worth it. The client I use is SmartCVS (http://www.smartcvs.com/). Great little program. It's multiplatform as it's made in Java. Includes SSH connectivity.

The servers at school (alpha, maxwell, iplgrp, psi) all have the CVS server already, so the hardest part has already been done. There are some sites online that host CVS servers (sourceforge, freepository), but it's better to have a private server (faster, private), plus, it gives me full control over it.
