A few people have started using version control systems in ways they were never intended -- a single repository to keep track of *every* file in the entire $HOME directory (the entire "My Documents" folder) for a single person. (Rather than the traditional *several* repositories, each one tracking only the files "relevant" to one particular project, with several people working together on each project). This approach (put *everything* into a version control repository) makes it much less likely that some important file will escape version control.
Version control isn't just for computers program development source files -- it's also useful for computer art, todo lists, fiction writing, non-fiction writing, and pretty much every other kind of file humans put on a computer.
"Keeping Your Life in Subversion" by Joey Hess 2005 was one of the first published article about this approach.
The VCS-home wiki is a place for people to learn how to set up a version control system in this way, and for people doing this to share tips with each other.
