There is an awful lot of Git GUI tools, some of them totally outdated.
I first thought about making a customized, CP styled tool, but eventually gave up on it because it was very likely that it was just trash.
I decided to go for the command line because after you have a repo set up you can just use git pull and git push, and the Git Bash is up-to-date because it is developed by Git themselves.
Maybe I am going to add a little chapter about a graphic Tool, but an article on the Task functionality is now on top of the bucket list.

no worries, wasn't being critical about what you had - just thought I'd mention the availability if anyone was looking for a non-commandline alternative (its always handy to know whats going on under the covers anyway, so having some knowledge of how to use the commandline isn't bad)

I started a little later than you, but got kicked out at 61 (with a reasonable severance package). I must say I quite enjoy doing (most) things when I want to, rather than when some damn fool tells me it's needed immediately.
Having no structured time requirements in your life is over-rated, imo. I had basically that for 2 years while I was trying to find an interesting job, and it is way too easy to lose the motivation to do anything at all. That's why lots of people either fail to retire properly (keeping an interest in their previous work), become limited hours contractors, or take up something that is essentially a job replacement that they have to work hard at (DIY, golf, writing, ...) once they retire.
I'm sure the feeling of not having to work to pay the bills, and to be able to pick and choose what work one does and for whom, is wonderful. I'm in a pretty good position in that regard as, although I do need to work for money, I can be fairly choosy about who I work for, and I don't have to work more than 9-5. I wouldn't want to be completely without structure though.
Assuming I, and civilisation as we know it, am still around at 65 I can see myself being a business owner and not really retiring because I'd get bored and demotivated having nothing forcing me to do stuff.
I've replaced working for; remodeling my sons house, hiking,camping, backpacking, biking, kayaking, I still program doing personal projects and articles for my web site and CP. But I do it at my pace not many dead lines anymore.
I wouldn't want to be completely without structure
I have structure in my life. When I get up I go for a bicycle ride (one day a long route [20-25 Km] next day a short route [5-6 Km]), when I get home I eat breakfast, I sweep up the around the outside of the house (a lot of flowers and leaves falling off the Mango trees this time of year), take a shower and go out to have lunch at a local place.
After lunch I usually go on the internet for an hour and maybe take a nap if I feel like it. After that I go out and have a few beers, take my dog out for a run (he is an old dog and can't run too fast anymore) and get home for dinner around dark because it is too hot to eat in the afternoon until the sun goes down.
Then I go back on the internet to check my email and maybe do a little programming. Later in the night I watch the English speaking news (Channel News Asia or AlJazeera) and watch a movie or two. Then it is off to bed and when I wake I start the cycle again.
That is about as much structure as I need in my life.
The report of my death was an exaggeration - Mark Twain
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
