Tools for nerds and/or the paranoid


I already mentioned the Gitea instance on the social platforms page, but I'm never sure which it is. I decided that it is collaborative, and therefore social... Ultimately, though, I want people to be able to find it, so it's here too!

Point is - there's a Gitea instance, which lets you host your git repositories in a nice, safe and non-corporate place. For the features and such, do checkout the social platforms page - or just go ahead and make an account. (I'm aware the captcha isn't accessible - I'm working on that, but for now, if it's a problem, you can get your account setup for you).
