When GitHub goes down…

Filed under: cool, git, tool — michaelangela @ 6:45 pm

So I started to try out github to work with some AS3 related code which I’ll talk about in an upcoming post. I just forked a bit of code I wanted to make changes to and then not long after that Github went down. But…

Don’t Panic! Because of the distributed nature of git, everyone always has a local full copy of the repository, complete with history. Any of your repositories, assuming they have been kept up to date, can be uploaded to the GitHub repository with no loss of data.

Pretty cool! I really like the embedded server bit. Very neat indeed.
