How to generate SSH keys for Github
It's been maybe 3 years since I last used git. And it feels like, "hello, world" as I try to relearn the workflow.
The plan was to push a repository for my notes in Github when I encountered the following error message. This was resolved by connecting with SSH.

Please use a personal access token instead. remote: Please see https://github.blog/2020-12-15-token-authentication-requirements-for-git-operations/ for more information fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://github.com/****
