Yes, though it was probably my fault.

I'm familiar with and have no problems using Mercurial. It's just Git
that confuses me completely.

Thanks for the tips :)

I don't understand the need for all this complexity though. Why is it
that Mercurial always seems to do what I expect while Git randomly
looks up an operation from its table of
things-a-user-would-never-possibly-want and applies that instead.

I realise that it's my own ignorance at fault here but, ultimately,
don't programmers have better things to be spending their time on than
the intricacies of the version control program.
