Subscribe to RSS feed Lost Last 3 Days of StocksCafe Forum

By evankoh posted on 25 Nov 2018  -  855 views


I am very sorry but as the title indicates, the last 3 days of data on StocksCafe Forum (forum.stocks.cafe) are lost. Please rest assured that this did not affect other StocksCafe systems and/or data at all as they are on independent servers. I am now glad that I spent the extra money to keep them separated.

Why?

The main reason is mostly due to my ignorance. I was trying to update the open source forum (i.e. Discourse forum) and somehow failed badly and had to do a roll back and the latest backup I had was 3 days ago.

How to prevent future data lost?

From this mistake, I have learnt and understood the updating processes better and believe this mistake would not happen again. However, there could always be many ways things could go wrong. Hence I have increased the backup frequency to daily so that even in the worst case, we would lose at most 1 day's worth of data.

In case you are interested, other StocksCafe systems are also backed up daily.

What you need to do in this data loss case?

Well, all messages and replies that were sent in the last 3 days are gone. If they are important, please send them again. If you are unsure when they were sent, you can always go to https://forum.stocks.cafe/u/[your_stockscafe_username]/activity and https://forum.stocks.cafe/u/[your_stockscafe_username]/messages/sent to see your latest activity and sent messages (replace your_stockscafe_username with your username accordingly).

Thank you for your understanding. I will continue to work hard to ensure an updated and stable StocksCafe (and Forum).

Happy investing!

Analyze and Compare Stocks (using SGXcafe)
Analyze Every investor has his/her favorite set of metrics that they look at when performing stock analysis and valuation. Therefore, it is difficult to decide which metric to display in SGXcafe, hence most of the time, I simply choose to display information that I am personally interested in. But I want to make SGXcafe more customizable so that it can provide better value to everyone. Incidentally, ...

Two Clicks to Any Page!
First of all, Gong Xi Fa Cai! As I am currently in Japan, I've got nowhere to go "bai nian". In combination with my wife not feeling so well, I've got on my hands an entire weekend to work on SGXcafe. One thing that is starting to irritate me is that as SGXcafe continues to add more features, I would have to make numerous clicks just to access a particular feature. This problem is amplified when I ...
