Controversy: There is no absolute security in the cloud#
Thoughts on cloud notes#
Actually, I haven't been using Notion for a long time. After my thoughts changed, I have been using Notion as a web repository. On one hand, Notion is not as smooth as Obsidian when it comes to opening. On the other hand, I realized that Notion or "All in one" is not a panacea. Specialization is the correct approach, after all, specialization is key. While specializing, it is enough to minimize the use of tools.
Later on, I gradually accepted that keeping data locally with Obsidian is the best option. Now, let's talk about Yuque. I used Yuque extensively before, and the writing experience for documents was good. However, since Yuque started requiring membership for sharing documents, I promptly stopped using it. At that time, I thought, what's the difference between writing in Obsidian and not being able to share? It was just a sarcastic remark, but now I actually use Obsidian. Oops!
Speculations about Yuque being down for 6 hours#
Yesterday, Yuque was down for 6 hours.
Various speculations appeared online, and currently, Yuque has restored its service.
Regarding why Yuque, as a cloud service document provider, could stop its service for 6 hours, I have the following three speculations:
The most likely reason is that the database was deleted.#
This is the reason I think is most likely, because deploying this application alone can be done quickly.
Yuque's emergency documents are stored in Yuque itself#
Yuque's emergency documents are stored in Yuque itself, so when people want to check how to handle emergencies, they find that their own Yuque cannot be opened. All I can say is, that's it, really.
Due to rectification of sensitive content#
The last possibility is that someone shared "sensitive" content on Yuque, which led to the website being urgently shut down and unable to provide services to the public temporarily. You can refer to the previous emergency rectification by Cnblogs.
It is essential to have your own data#
Incidents like this have further strengthened my choice of Obsidian as my note-taking software. By using Onedrive and Github as my synchronization tools, I can ensure that my data is never lost. That's right, I am that confident.
I used to think that notes didn't have much value since I didn't really look at them. However, after writing blogs, I gradually realized that the value of notes is much greater than I imagined. Those people and events in my memories, if they are lost, may never be recovered. Protecting my note data is important, so that I won't have any regrets.
