JungleDisk – Server Daemon Not Responding, No Backups, Not cool?

So I noticed that one of my servers wasn’t being backed up via email alerts recently. Usually I’m on top of it, but I noticed recently one less email from JungleDisk (I get completion notices on all JungleDisk Backups).

So I opened up the Jungle Disk Server Edition Management and found that I couldn’t connect to the machine I was trying to open. I thought, hrmm this happened before I just need to restart the “junglediskserver” process on the server in question. At which point I could then see the server listed in the Management console.

Once selected the server to see when the last backup was, I noticed it was 24 days from the last complete backup. I was super surprised and kinda ticked off because I didn’t notice this quick enough to fix it and neither did JungleDisk. I mean if there are 24 missed backup windows, don’t you think I should be notified.

I described the above to JungleDisk in an email to their Feedback address, lets see how they respond.

Update #1: I got a response from JungleDisk via email, they directed me to their Support System at which point I was able to post a feature request. But to my surprise their were already a handful of similar requests, so I dropped my two bits in. The one thread was over 2 years old. Great software, bad community relationship.

Update #2: I haven’t been following the thread on Jungledisk’s support site as I’ve pretty much decided to live with this problem. However, another awesome thing happened (I’m being sarcastic). Jungledisk was doing a backup and it either started super slow or during the backup it slowed down, either way the backup was going at 0.1k/s and wasn’t going to finish. It kept running, it missed the next backup window and I only knew this because I got no email about the job completing. You would think if a job takes too long and the next backup window is forthcoming, why not notify via email that it’s happening.

Corporate critics feel the stinging lash of DMCA misuse

I use to work for an ISP and was head of the Abuse Department. We only really received legitimate DCMA's that were then handled by legal. We didn't really seem to get that many DMCA notices, maybe its because we're a Canadian organization?

Two recent cases show that companies aren't always fans of criticism, and some will file misguided DMCA notices and defamation cases to scrub it from the Internet.
