Spins a web, any size,

Look GitLab, when I say "remember me", I don't mean "log me out after two weeks", I mean this is my fucking computer just let me stay logged in for god's sake

I just call it Microsoft GitHub these days. Does half the job of communicating the risks of it being a hard dependency for FOSS projects in particular.

@vascorsd This is the major downside of centralizing your entire project, you’ve just introduced a single point of failure. And now that single point has failed. Git was designed to be decentralized, and communication about projects used to be mainly on decentralized platforms too (IRC, Email). If people were to go back to decentralized services, this wouldn’t be as big of a problem as it is now.

Three copies of anything you want to keep (minimum)!

Two different formats (minimum)!

One copy kept off-site (minimum)!
