GitLab.com Database Incident | GitLab
Yesterday we had a serious incident with one of our databases. We lost six hours of database data (issues, merge requests, users, comments, snippets, etc.) for GitLab.com. Git/wiki repositories and self hosted installations were not affected. Losing production data is unacceptable and in a few days we’ll post the 5 why’s of why this happened and a list of measures we will implement.
Update 6:14pm UTC: GitLab.com is back online
As of time of writing, were restoring data from a six-hour-old backup of our database. This means that any data between 5:20pm UTC and 11:25pm UTC from the database (projects, issues, merge requests, users, comments, snippets, etc.) is lost by the time GitLab.com is live again.
Git data (repositories and wikis) and self-hosted instances of GitLab are not affected.

Plex enables voice control of media via Alexa – Six Colors
Even though Ive been waiting for the much-anticipated Sonos-Alexa integration, it hadnt occurred to me that I could be using my Amazon Echo in conjunction with other media. So todays announcement by Plex that it was rolling out an Alexa skill allowing control of your media library took me by surprise. So I fired it up and quickly ran it through its paces. The verdict? Definitely shows some promisethough its hampered by a few limitations, not all of which are under Plexs control.
The Plex skill is definitely one of the more complex third-party features Ive used. First you have to enable it, then log in to your Plex account, then authorize Alexa to access your Plex account. But wait, theres more! After that, you have to set both your default server and player. The latter was where I ran into my first hiccup: I intended to set my Apple TV as the default player, but at first it wasnt detectedpresumably because the set-top box was asleep. But eventually after waking it up and opening the Plex app (and opening the Plex app on my iPhone and on the web), I was finally able to set the Apple TV as my default player.

Facebook shows no sign of stopping, now has 1.86 billion users
Facebook is under quite a bit of pressure of late. It’s trying to fix the rise of fake news and clickbait on its News Feed and, more recently, it’s had to deal with the Zenimax lawsuit against Oculus. But all of that hasn’t eaten into Facebook’s bottom line. As its Q4 2016 earnings report shows, the company once again raked in cash hand over fist, with $8.8 billion in revenue and $3.56 billion in profit. Its user growth also continues to climb, with 1.86 billion monthly users and 1.74 billion logging in on mobile. Mobile advertising made up 84 percent of its revenue last quarter.
Those numbers are pretty good when you look at daily users too. The company reports that 1.23 billion people use Facebook everyday, with 1.15 billion doing so from mobile devices. Still, the growth is only up 3.91 percent from last quarter, which is slightly slower than the 4.67 percent reported a few months ago. Also, while $8.8 billion is certainly a hefty amount, it’ll lose around $500 million due to the Zenimax lawsuit payoutannounced earlier today.

“This app has changed my life. I never think of drinking water and often end up dehydrated. Thanks to the watch complication I’m always aware of how much is left to drink and filling the ring has become a game to me. This is the app I use most on Apple Watch. The difference with other apps in the category? The app stayed simple and not bloated with unnecessary stuff, the watch complication is a circle which fits perfectly next to the activity rings. This app is exactly what an Apple Watch app should be: fast, simple, useful, good looking, and upon all not doing too much. Five stars is the least you deserve!”
“A must have – I love this app!!! It reminds me to drink water all day with such a hectic schedule I forget sometimes and this is just a little reminder of how much water you’re supposed to drink my skin looks better I feel better must have app!!!”
“Went beyond my expectations – Usually I download these apps and they hardly ever have long shelf life’s, but this app is a keeper. The reminder really helps and motivates me to drink water. I also love how visual the accomplishment is. Definitely worth looking into and happily satisfied.”
“PERFECT – I absolutely love this app!!!! It really helps if you have kidney problems. I was having bad kidney pains because I wasn’t sure how much water to drink in a day so I was only getting about 1/2 if what I was supposed to be getting until now. To the creators., THANK YOU”
“Amazing App! – This is an amazing app. I’m someone who has trouble remembering to drink fluids during the day, I’m more of a snacker. But I found this really helpful since I’m generally dehydrated. I like that it has reminders & how you can see your progress.”
