I am a single programmer. I work alone, not in a team. I always used SourceSafe, still do for my VB6 work.
I tried TFS and SVN for my .Net stuff and find them both confusing and cumbersome, in my circumstances.
Is there a manual, book, or some kind of documentation or tutorial for one of the three? Better yet, is there some other source control system, that integrates into VS2015/VS2017 designed for programmers/developers that do not work in a team?
Suggestions would be appreciated.

Okay, maybe I am insane, but I have never gotten why people have problems with branching/merging whether it is with TFS or GIT or whatever source control. Early in my career, I think 10 or more years ago, I read a white paper from Microsoft on the best practices for handling version control branching in TFS. This may well have been before GIT even existed. The paper was clear and concise, left multiple choices on branching/merging strategies and how to handle conflicts and other problems in source control. As far as I know, that white paper is still out there and available and even though it is old now, it is still very relevant. I read it once, reviewed it a couple of years later and I haven't had a problem with source control since. Everything made sense and it has always been easy for me. Like I said, maybe I am insane, but I encounter many developers that can't handle branching/merging and conflicts and I truly don't get the problem. Maybe you guys can clue me in.
The problem is more with the arcane syntax of the CL in Git or the obtuse wording. For example, in TFS, there are the terms "source branch" and "target branch" and I truly have no idea what "source" and "target" are referring to. While it sort of makes sense that "target" is the branch I'm merging to it never seems to do the right thing when merging conflicts.
Or in SmartGit "select the branch or commit to merge" - but I'm merging from one branch to another, so saying that doesn't give me any indication of whether I'm selecting the "from" or to the "to" branch.
And then the two options as buttons "Create Merge-Commit" and "Merge to Working Tree" - I have no idea what a Merge-Commit is, and even less what a "Working Tree" is, why there are these options, what they do, and what the implication is.
Basically, to figure this all out, I would have to set up a play project, create some branches, change some things, try out the variations, and figure out what it actually did.
Maybe my brain just isn't wired for all this. I have a visual concept of "the server" that has stuff, my "local" machine that has stuff, and all I want to do is say "get my local stuff onto the server stuff". Maybe I have branches locally, maybe the server has branches, at which point my head starts implode.
While NASA is famed for the occasional convoluted acronym, the camera team came up with its own prize winner: DARKNESS, which stands for “DARK-speckle Near-infrared Energy-resolved Superconducting Spectrophotometer.”
The DARKNESS camera can take thousands of images per second without the “read noise” and other factors that affect more traditional cameras. It also can determine the wavelength and arrival time of every photon striking its detector.
OK, that's cool. But I have a question. Why does this "new" camera look sort of weather beaten in the pic?
First line was "beingdeveloped" - implying what you're looking at is still under construction. Sheet metal, for example, often comes with text on it when shipped from the mill. That would, for example, explain the dirt-like marks on the top.
I'm sure they'll spray paint it or something when it's done.
Usually they gold leaf space stuff for the radiation protection. The leaf is so thin just touch it and it'll peel off onto your finger no matter how well you wash. Gloves wont help either so thin just a little rub and it'll tear the leaf.
(Those little blobs are only a few micrograms, scientists wont get rich scraping gold leaf off their finger tips even after a lifetime's worth.)

Use an artist's paint brush, rub on face to build up a little static, pick up the leaf and "paint it on". So simple even an old fool could do it... oh wait.. I don't have any. Traded all mine for bitcoins.
If you can keep your head while those about you are losing theirs, perhaps you don't understand the situation.
I'm basically putting together a new guitar with an old body.
I got a combination of Seymour Duncan Hot Rails and Cool Rails and now I'm figuring out the potentiometers. (1 of them has to be push/pull ).
The wiring scheme says 250 Ohm, so I got that (though I don't know what the difference 250 vs 500 actually does), but there is also a difference between a logarithmic ("audio") and a linear potentiometer. I read you should use the logarithmic ones since they don't "cut-off" at the end. Is that both for volume and tone (I need 1 volume and 2 tones) ?
Any other advice I should take in account for the potentiometers, eg how do you know what knobs will fit on those meters?
Any advice on the switch itself (5 way switch)?
