    They've missed database updates like this before too. Hopefully back to normal tomorrow.

    Looks like they are back up (after I spent a couple hours trying to integrate a backup solution with )

    not fully back up. ETFs are still a day behind.
  5. I get the feeling that yahoo! soon will be charging for everything, even email.

    Stopping the free service for a day is a marketing tool to gauge the true demand and to price the service.

    Yahoo data is's like they have an army of people hand-entering the data each night and sometimes they get a little behind. That's the only explanation I can think of for why it isn't always updated at the exact same time each day...and they occasionally have these multi-day hiccups.

    I thought exactly the same thing. Thankfully there are alternatives, so they wouldn't achieve much by doing that.
