Unless I'm missing something, Visual Source Safe won't be necessary since
you are the only person modifying these particular files.
Source Safe is invaluable for developers working on the same project. (The
alternative, as I recall all too vividly from the days before such tools
became available, is to have developers overwriting each other's code.)
However, I've never heard of using it when only one person is working on a
project or particular stand-alone aspect of the project.
