GitHub down again? Why not try a Hosted Gitea box?

Sooooooooooo it seems like GitHub is down every other day lately. If only there was a service that allowed you to run your own private Gitea server but without all the hassle of deploying and maintaining it yourself. Geez wouldn't that be wonderful. 😉

I just dropped the price from $37 to $24 so get in quick!

    Hmmm... I work with Github on a daily basis, never experienced it's down.

        Well, I see now it may happen but...
        Github is pretty old and might company, having a lot of resources (hardware, software, people) so I believe every incident will be investigated carefully and something will be improved or fixed.
        So, what is a warranty your service will be better?

        1. 1

          There is no warranty, but you get to speak to a real, accountable human when you need to.

          Github is Budweiser and Hosted Gitea is a craft beer, where you can shoot the breeze with the brewer. Not everybody likes craft beer and that's totally ok with me!

            There is no warranty,
            If there is no warranty, I don't see why your service has more value.

            but you get to speak to a real, accountable human when you need to.
            Do I really need? It's a question of organization no the quality of the service. If your service will be down 5 times in a week, do I need a human?

            Github is Budweiser and Hosted Gitea is a craft beer,
            Hmmm not sure what makes you say so. The comparison is pretty incorrect because here is just a matter of quality of the service, not something like customization or high design.

              Do I really need?

              No, it sounds like Hosted Gitea is not for you.

              The service will certainly not be down 5 times in a week, but that is beside the point. Some people find value in a service that is run by human beings who respect their privacy, rather than a faceless corporation. Some people like being able to speak to a person when they need something. It sounds like this is not something that is of value you, and that's all good. No worries.

              I absolve you of the requirement to become a Hosted Gitea customer and give you my permission to continue to use GitHub forever more.

              Thank you for your questions, and for your time. 🙏
