comment Is it unusual for a small company (15 developers) not to use managed source/version control?
+1 for ignorance/fud. If you're a professional software developer, not using SCM, then you're not. period.

Another great use for SCM: I come in on Monday, wonder what the heck I was working on last Friday. I just do a diff or look at the last checkin log, and I'm immediately back in the zone.

+1, Lots of small shops start out using zip files as their archive. Thinking "I may want to get back to this point, so I'll just zip the whole thing". It's not the same, not at all. Once you've gotten familiar with SCM, and the great tools that are built on top (log, diff, blame, etc..), you'll never go back.
