I tried to do the same thing with a company that I worked for. When I asked one of the guys why he would manually copy directories for some revisions instead of using version control to create a revision history he replied (off topic even) that his code was proprietary because it was better than the rest, and that he didn't need to share any of it with the team, so version control was pointless. I asked him what happened if his house/computer was destroyed and he died. He said he hoped that maybe he could specify with his third party backup who could access the files.
So... I guess:
You might be a Version Control Avoider if.. you are arrogant and ignorant?
I seriously could not believe that kind of response, it didn't even answer my question. It was like he just had that canned and somehow expected all of the people outside of his little bubble to just accept it as valid. I think he has since been forced to use a centralized repository to some degree.
They are actually a team of brilliant scientists who simply have never been formally trained in industry-standard programming techniques. That's why they hired me. I'm just here to help fill in a few gaps.
Does anyone ever think about the diversity of their music collection? Just now, for instance, I listened to "Julia[^]" by John Lennon, "Bulls on Parade[^]" by Rage Against The Machine, "Save A Prayer[^]" by Duran Duran, and then "Murderers[^]" by John Frusciante.
Links have been included in case you don't know any of the songs I mentioned. I expect that no one has ever heard the last one.

A few years back I purchased Nirvana , Pink Floyd, Reba Macintyre, Beatles, 38 Special and Classical Music sampler in one purchase. The clerk asked if they were gifts, I told him no, for me. He shook his head and told me that was the strangest combination of CD’s he’d ever told.
I think people who limit their choices to single genre are missing out on a world of good music. Luckily most of the people I know do have varied tastes in music. A good tune is just hard to resist no matter what genre.
Still do, I can purchase CDs anywhere from 0.50 to 3.00 USD. (New one's are more, but if I wait they'll get there) I can put the songs on any device that will accept mp3's. And I can play them in my car.
