UPDATE (15 January 2012) : We are now working out the solution to overcome this problem. For how our solution work, please refer to http://yccheok.blogspot.com/2012/01/migrating-cloud-storage-from-google-app.html
All the while, JStock's Cloud Storage feature is provided as FREE OF CHARGE. (Free as in free beer, and free as in freedom too).
However, due to the new pricing scheme introduced by Google recently, JStock's cloud storage will be temporary unavailable.
Under new pricing scheme, free quota offered by Google, will quickly consumed away by JStock users from all around the world, within few hours!!!
The below screen shoot explains what is going on.
As you can see, under old pricing scheme offered by Google, JStock's Cloud Storage service can run free of charge, within a single day, on Google server.
However, under new pricing scheme, this is how it looks like just after a few hours.
Currently, we are still figuring out, how we can make this cloud storage feature FREE always.
- Switching to another service provider? But which service provider does provide free cloud storage, for an open source project?
- Monetary support from JStock users? http://jstock.sourceforge.net/donation.html
Till now, we deeply apologize for the unavailability of cloud storage feature!
For temporary workaround, you may import and your data in Microsoft Excel format or CSV format as shown below. Just go to File -> Save as...
Besides import and export using Microsoft Excel/ CSV format, you may also perform backup, by perform copying operation on .jstock folder as described here : http://jstock.sourceforge.net/help_install_upgrade.html#upgrade-windows
