StackExchange is the software used to run this website (SQLA)...

"The main feature introduced in Beta 7 is the ability to export your database to XML."

As soon as the SQLA administrator (that's me) makes sure the database export feature works, it will be possible to actively promote SQLA usage among the SQL Anywhere community.

For more information about what's in Beta 7:

I'm looking forward to the next announcement from the above-mentioned administrator. I'm sure that spreading the news about this site will surely bring more life to it.

Yes, and it would be interesting how to test a disaster-recovery on a cloud-hosted website - common techniques like "just unplug the power-supply" might not work there:). - Well, of course, he could ask Jeff Atwood...

I think it could be considered illegal, if the adminstrator hacked his own site to bring the database down :-). But if its possible to install the StackExchange software onto a local host, that would be a test platform for desaster recovery

SQLA is going to rely on Fog Creek (the StackExchange people) for "normal" hot/warm disaster recovery. The backup I am looking for is in case Fog Creek vanishes and takes SQLA with it... we will have a copy of our own data that is reasonably up to date, that can be used to (eventually, after much effort no doubt) populate a replacement site.

@Reimer: The "Enterprise" version lets you host your own server ...don't hold your breath waiting for me do that :)

Editing the title is kinda fun... might be useful for "news items" like this one.

"Maybe TOMORROW!" - Well, that's a deadline all my projects can usually hold. Ask me the other day:)
