You spend a lot of time entering your collection in the system. If you had a choice, which type of storage would you prefer?

Local Only (Your Computer) - This is what we have now.

Local And Cloud - This means that you have your database on both your computer and the cloud. The downside of this option means some sort of sync process and your local copy could be out of sync with your cloud copy and vice versa.

Cloud Only - This means your data is always up to date, but you must always have an internet connection. It is pretty secure as servers are backed up, and redundant.

Comments relevant to this poll are welcome. More and more people are trusting the cloud these days, but I want to see what you guys are thinking.

Thanks.

Joe

Gah. My one year old hit my hand. One "local only" should be "local and cloud."

I don't really understand this whole "cloud" thing. I must be old. Anyway, I don't use the App (because I'm cheap) and I actually print out my wantlist (gasp!). So I really have no need for my collection to be in the air.

I'll go ahead and vote Local and Cloud, tho, to balance out Swift's error.

You gotta keep your eye on 1 year old kids. Those suckers are quite insidious!

Don't worry, the terrible twos are on the way. Devil

I'm voting local and cloud as well.

Seems to me that both would be the ideal situation.

Don't we already have this for our wishlists? If I add a book to my wishlist in the desktop software and run the update, doesn't my wishlist on the website get updated to reflect that change? Similarly, if I add a book to my wishlist via the website, doesn't it get added to my desktop software database when I run the update again? How, then, would it be out of sync as long as I update my database?

Seems like Local and Cloud are in the lead.

In this day and age, are there really times when you are not online? Seems that would be the only time you actually need it local. Unless you don't trust the cloud with your database.

Can I get some real world scenarios of when you might not be online but would need access to your database.

Thanks.

JB

How about when there is no wifi connection. Most comic shops and conventions don't have wifi. The CCL app is a perfect example. It is totally useless without a wifi connection. What happens when your cloud goes down? Giving up your data to some other party places you at their mercy if you don't have local access to it.

It's not that I think I need it offline. It's just that I've always preferred having physical media and your own control of your own files/info over cloud-based or digital based.

BTW, do you guys still sell CD-Rom copies of the software, out of curiosity?

Let's say you log into CCL on a computer somewhere and add a run of Batman issues (I am talking about our update... you can't do that now). Now, you get home and boot up your computer, but you don't have internet for one reason or another. Your database on your computer is out of sync till you connect. That is all i meant for out of sync.

I just re-upped my software like a month ago. I was just wondering, and making a mental note of it for next time.

A) There are plenty of times I work off-line to avoid distractions and pop-ups and updates (not CCL updates)

B) & most importantly I DO NOT TRUST THE CLOUD, I like being able to control my information.

When the cloud based servers you moved to died for a day like they seem to every couple months.

Plus, it's MY collection. If I no longer subscribe to CCL for whatever reason I want my massive collection coming with me.

And some folks don't want to or can't or simply don't have a data plan that gives them access to the cloud. Hell, I know it's hard to get a cell signal at most cons.

Yesterday afternoon, we began to notice an issue with one of CCL's servers which caused the CCL site to only function on one server. The one server which was carrying the load was pretty much bogged down and so the site was up and down for a while. I was asked by the people working on the servers not to do anything to the site while the maintenance was going on. Not sure why, but those were my rules. Plus, it was an easy rule to follow since our cable company here just happened to be working on the internet service AND our internet was down for a while.


Internet goes down all the time all over the place including over at golocomedia.

Most large sites like convention centers or hotels have crappy wifi. Most comic shops dont have wifi.

Plus about 100 other reasons why internet only doesnt work.









Thanks to the following sellers for helping me put together my complete run of Amazing Spider-man #1-700

ComicCastle
TreeHouse
Hall Of Heroes
Thundercron's Longbox
DrumCzar


Now for the sellers helping me finish my TMNT collection:

Cloud and local(Sync). I currently have the collection in two places and only one has the database. I know that they both have the wishlist but I have encountered situations where I have taken a book of my wishlist but it keeps coming back so I also check my collected to verify before I buy.
