It seems to me that statoverflow.com doesn't have the November data (latest data seems to be August), and stackql.net seems to be no more. Are there other public facing interactive data dumps around?

Incidentally, I can't figure out how to use this one - the ordering stuff doesn't seem to work, though I hear it's got November's data.

  • stackql will be back. – Joel Coehoorn Dec 7 '09 at 14:19
  • Thanks Joel - I for one really appreciate it! – Dominic Rodger Dec 7 '09 at 14:48
  • @dominic - could you elaborate on the problem you had with ordering at the rdhbost site? – Rdbhost Dec 10 '09 at 6:08
  • @pduel - the pointing and clicking interface didn't work for me (the auto-generated SQL just didn't do what I asked - when I told it to fetch me my comments, ordered by score desc (by selecting the various rows from the pulldown and checking the DESC box) it generated SELECT * FROM "so"."comments" WHERE "owner" = %s ORDER BY "score" OFFSET 0 LIMIT 30, which is notably missing the DESC parameter. This morning I saw the Edit link by the SQL, and manually editing it returned data fine. – Dominic Rodger Dec 10 '09 at 6:41

This blog post shows how to get the data up to the start of December. You'll need to figure out how to use the XML yourself though.

Joel Coehoorn has commented that StackQL is only temporarily down:

Unfortunately, it's been down for a while. I'm moving in < 2 weeks (right before Christmas :( ) and don't have time to spend figuring out why (appearances sometimes to the contrary). Sorry.

That said, as soon as I do get time it's near the top of my list.

  • It's actually up again right now, but it's not reliable/stable yet. – Joel Coehoorn Dec 7 '09 at 20:05

A magical unicorn has posted it here, accessible via HTTP: Stack Overflow, Server Fault, and Super User Data Dumps

The naming convention over time has been subject to change, so maybe you are just confused? The most recent dump, covering to the end of November, was released last week.

    I don't think I'm confused - this question is not about missing data dumps, just that the publicly queryable sources of this data (statoverflow/stackql) don't have the latest data/are down, so I was wondering if there was somewhere else to go that I didn't know about (without the effort of downloading and parsing the dump files myself). – Dominic Rodger Dec 7 '09 at 13:27
  • OK. That means I was confused. Sparkle happens. – Stu Thompson Dec 7 '09 at 15:28
