I've asked a similar question, and I believe the answer is "yes".

I know that Pinary has a lot of projects and improvements he's working to add to the forum. A more rigorous backup system might be one of them now with the recent MSPA Forum issues.

There's still a lot of uncertainty about exactly what happened at MSPA. Most people blame a hacking attempt, but it could also have been many other things. So a system that would have worked over there might not be the same solution we would need over here.

Actually, uh

best as I understand what happened at MSPAF, if the same thing happened to us our fine-ness would entirely depend on how destructive the hackers were feeling.

If someone cracked the FTP login for eagle-time.com, they could go folder by folder and delete everything. I don't believe we've got offline backups to restore the site in that eventuality. We almost definitely probably should.

Pines' word obviously overrides mine here, but I figure it's best to be upfront about the technical state of the forum, which is that it's currently on cruise control until Pinary has the right combination of time+energy+manageable goals list to actually "improve" the place.

idea: a free forum that's hosted somewhere else. you write a bot for that forum which is like otto, who copies over any posts made on this forum onto that forum. offsite posting backup accomplished

I think it's useful to note here: please don't rely on Eagle Time or any other online service not specifically in the backup business (which charge a pretty penny!) to back up your things. Make your own, just in case.
