I just had this need for storing a snippet of code, I made, for my future self. In this case, it was an attempt at parsing a file in an effective way in C, approximately 45 lines.
I want it to stay persistent and be able to consult it later on. I thought maybe I should put it on a drive or something, but it will get messy. GitHub will be overkill for something small.
Sometimes I use Stack Overflow to keep a bookmark of question I should visit now and then. It would be nice to do it for a personal snippet of code, accessible only on my user page.
