(off) dropbox down

Mark Talluto via use-livecode
For everyone who does anything with dropbox, it's been down since at least
2AM EDT.

On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."

I am not seeing the same problem… looks like it is functioning to me.

For this morning:

Network outages for popular services can often be tracked using
third-party tools.  Searching Google for "is dropbox down" led me to
this report confirming that many others have reported similar issues
with Dropbox today:

http://downdetector.com/status/dropbox


For this afternoon:

Nextcloud - can't say enough good things about it.  Free and open
source, available here:

https://nextcloud.com/

[Pardon the long pitch, but it's a free package and a really good one:]

Ever since I started using it I've stopped using Dropbox, Google Drive,
and other services I'd used in the past.  Why?  Better sync, more
flexible options, and completely under my own control all the way down
to how much storage space I want.

Nextcloud is a PHP package that installs under Apache.  As such it's not
yet an end-user consumer product (a partnership with Western Digital is
in the process of producing one), but is very well suited for anyone
comfortable with setting up Apache.

Dual-licensed like LiveCode, the GPL edition is probably more than
adequate for the needs of most readers here (though the Enterprise
edition has some components that may be worth considering if you're
running a larger business).

You install Nextcloud on any VPS or dedicated server, and once installed
you're limited only by your server's disk capacity.

You can set up any number of user accounts, establish disk quotas for
them if needed, and share files between them or even publicly. You can
sync any number of folders, and synced folders maintain versions when
files change so you can revert to any earlier version at any time.

Nextcloud has native clients for Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, and Android.

I originally tried it as a solution for syncing my LiveCode Plugins
folder across all the machines I work on, and as the only option with
native clients for all three OS families that alone made it an instant
favorite.

Since then I've discovered that it includes a considerable number of
apps, included an embedded version of LibreOffice, contact, photo
management, etc., with more available from their third-party collection.

I had the pleasure of meeting the project founder and director, Frank
Karlitschek, at the SoCal Linux Expo a couple weeks ago, along with the
project's community manager and head of marketing, Jos Poortvliet.  Both
fun-loving, hard-working people, committed to the vision of putting
people back in control of their cloud systems.

Until they get a turnkey consumer device shipping, Nextcloud may not be
for everyone just yet.

But for developers in an increasingly interconnected world that already
has us configuring Apache, Nextcloud can be a very good solution for
cloud storage and more.

If nothing else, consider:

When a public cloud service like Dropbox goes down, your only recourse
is to wait and pray.

If your Nextcloud server goes down (and mine never has in the many years
I've been running it), chances are you'll just reboot and be back in
business in minutes.

Maybe this all had to do with this in some way?

Re: (off) dropbox down

Or maybe THIS had some complications they were working through.  I received
an email from Dropbox that said:

"This is a reminder that your Public folder links will become inactive
on *March
15*. On that date, your Public folder will become a standard Dropbox
folder, and your files will remain safe in your account. If you want to
share those files again, you’ll need to use shared links instead."

We got blasted sometime between midnight and 1 EDT.  The rest of the US got
hosed between 6 and 7 AM.  They weren't up until 10:15 EDT.  Anyway, that's
the first time we've seen an outage that was long enough for us to notice
since we started using DB with LC.

Roger, I'm going to start a different thread on the new public folder.
