now that I got CI working on codeberg, I'm ready to proceed with moving Leiningen off github for #giveupgithub
I've opened an issue here to gather feedback from the community; please chime in if you're a Leiningen user and you have thoughts about where to move: https://github.com/technomancy/leiningen/issues/2800
til how to set up a ups (battery) such that when the power drops, my media server performs a normal shutdown to save battery and the wifi router etc. stays running
which should make for a much less stressful transition to working offline, when it happens
also having a ups instead of a surge strip, i hope, will avoid any damage to my computers that a brown-out might cause
the software that talks to the ups is packaged in debian as "nut-client," https://networkupstools.org/

As useful as GitHub is, it's a proprietary extension to git. Always has been. So is GitLab. They're not as dominant in the market, and provide some FOSS version, but their business is still to hook folks on their extensions.
Gitea is different, and codeberg provides excellent hosting for it. It's one alternative to vendor lock-in.
I'm regularly stunned by how little people pay attention to this kind of thing these days. It almost seems as if folk are seeking to be locked in.
Amazon has its own Copilot now:
Putting aside all the other issues with these things, I have a feeling I would enjoy a feature like this as much as I enjoy the suggestion features for word processors and emails they've tried to shove down our throats for a while, which is to say not at all.
