Do you always answer a question with a question?

Does that mean that this is being given a lower priority than the upgrade to 3.0.2?

The TN database is developing into a seriously useful resource - I would like to be reassured that the data is being properly backed up to more than one location...

:tpf: backups be further copied to a CD

Post by jdaw1 » 20:59 Thu 31 Jul 2008

I propose that :tpf: backups be further copied to a CD, which is then mailed to one of JDAW DRT THRA. Recipient can keep and hopefully ignore the slowly-growing pile of disks.

If dated, we can always bin the previous one!

Alternatively, how easy is it to email the essential data?

Some email systems reject large emails

Some email systems reject large emails. And a CD is harder to lose — in the way that computers can randomly delete important files. A CD would be much safer: I’d be happy to file them, keeping the most recent several (keeping more than one in case of a ‘problem’).

Backups are taken on a regular basis by me and the hosting company backs up the servers.

I can backup to disc and to an external hard-drive. I can also backup using the application and SQL. Derek and Julian both have the ability to backup using the application...

Would it take considerable effort to create a second version of the TN Index thread that was ordered by Vintage then Shipper? I think it would be good to be able to isolate all TNs for a particular vintage rather than scrolling through the list of shippers.

For the avoidance of doubt, I think both Vintage>>Shipper and Shipper>>Vintage are equally useful so I am advocating having two TN Index threads, or one thread containing both versions.

Can be done. What happens to “NV†s, and the likes of “20Y†. Or is the date thing only for dated things?

If it makes it easier then the others could be excluded. If the thingymajig that does the ordering would simply place them all together in some sort of logical order at the top or bottom of the date list then that may also be useful. I wouldn't waste time messing about with these.

This? I have removed the links from the house names, because their great number would otherwise overwhelm.

Was only a little bother, but having been done, won’t be much to maintain.

The new Vintage-sorted thread is excellent. Thank you, JDAW.

Two suggestions:
  1. both indeces should have a link on the Board Index page
  2. each of the threads should have a link to the other immediately below the title at the top of each thread.
