    Oh neat, I came across BuildJet the other day.

    I was trying to cross-compile a side project ( for Linux arm64 but trying to do so would throw up some instruction set errors.

    I had parted the idea of supporting Linux arm since Github has no runners but I threw in BuildJet and it spat out a working build with no problems!

    Given it only needs to run on release, for a small open source project, being charged something like 1 cent per build is surprisingly reasonable compared to having no runner at all / having to spin up a self-hosted runner :)
