I have a habit of prepending '#' to filenames that I wish to archive
or ignore. So myfile.txt becomes #myfile.txt . I found that I can
ignore these files by placing "*/#" in the .gitignore file in my home
directory (or in the repository exclude file). BTW, this also works
To be honest, this started as a question, but I figured it out while
typing this post. :)
