    You do have backups, right?

    1) go to GitLab.com
    2) create account
    3) create a private repo
    4) if windows goto:5, if Linux/OS X goto:6
    5) install git bash
    6) apt install gi
    7) git clone <repo url> into a suitable folder , and add git config for username/email
    8) git touch readme.md
    9) git add .
    10) git commit -m "yay I'm a git Star"
    11) git push

    Or at least run your own local subversion. https://subversion.apache.org/

    But I prefer GIT too but with the desktop app.

    OK I'm lazy ๐Ÿ˜”

    @KartSriv GitLab tells you how to do it when you create the repo anyway ๐Ÿ˜•

    Just trying to shown it's not as complicated as people think

    @KartSriv ci/cd pipelines for free built in + unlimited private repos instead of 3

    @KartSriv I stand corrected.
    But still free ci/cd built in instead of relying on a 3rd party which takes even more Ike to setup.

    Just drop a gitlab.yml and fail a few times before you get it working and away you go.

    @KartSriv I'm GitLab is googled so guess it depends on your choice of enemies

    Well not owned but would have a reasonable stake since GL migrated everyone over to Googles cloud

    It's not that bad actually. If the code is still kinda fresh in your head you might find bugs that you did not see before. And rewriting something always makes it that you learn something new.

    No backup?
    No pity!

    Who stores source code locally anymore? Shit I did for a long time until I discovered GitLab and FREE private repos...and now GitHub private repos are free so I’m constantly committing and pushing.

    One time someone I knew asked if I was pushing some good shit and I said yeah, PUSHING THOSE COMMITS BOI.
