I think in the coming months I'm going to spin down the https://gitgalaxy.com website & domain. When I originally came up with the name, I was unaware of the git branding guidelines, and it occurred to me a while back that it might actually infringe on those.
I enjoyed the experience but with little time to blog on my own time, and being unable to build a community around the site like I wanted, I think it's time to let it go.
I am also more seriously considering switching my "gmem" handle, but it's a difficult decision given how much it means to me and the history I have with it. Given my recent embracing of the furry community, it's certainly given me more ideas but it doesn't make it easier to pick.
