To further distance itself from suspicions that this is a reaction to the GitHub furore, GitLab pointed out in its announcement that it has maintained a secondary GitLab.com site, containing some 200TB of Git data, on the Google Cloud Platform using GitLab's own Geo mirroring technology for a "few months".
I appear to have acquired 4TB of local spinning storage as a result of a DWP error in my favour. I have fuck all idea what to do with it but, for the moment, I appear to have 3TB of unpartitioned space spare. OK it's sitting on the end of an ADSL line plus I switch the computer off when I go to bed.
It should not be beyond the classical stupidity of the Idiots involved to fuck up some script in Ruby, Twat or Python such that I can donate some storage. Stick some BlockChain on it as well for brownie points...
Don't forget "Cloud is Someone Else's Computer".
Try not to Wank It Up.
