Hot damn, Emacs hasn't ceased to amaze me yet. The more you figure out how it works, the more you realize how powerful it is. And I know I'm still just scratching the surface. Today, I'm executing my JS work and viewing/filtering my csv output, all with a few keystrokes inside Emacs. I've barely had to leave Emacs today.

a Mastodon client ...
Please remember that #Git is by nature distributed. So when migrating from (for example) #GitHub to (for example) #GitLab please, please, please do NOT create a brand new repository and git add the files, or the entire commit history will be lost. Instead, just push the existing repository to your new hosting service.
