If you really think rolling your own deployment system is simpler than using source control then I don't think you've understood all of the advantages of source control. I know it can look complicated, but it's really not, and it will make it far easier to keep track of what you're doing and what changes are deployed where than the system you described. I strongly recommend you reconsider. -Stuart -- Stuart Dallas 3ft9 Ltd http://3ft9.com/
