      Orphan Attachments   07/31/2018

      I have been doing some housekeeping lately and I've noticed that I had a lot of orphaned attachments. Attachments get orphaned when the PM or post is deleted without removing the attachment first. Deleting a PM or post does not delete the attachment and the file or image remain on the server. I'd like to ask all members to go through their attachments and delete any attachments you don't need anymore or those that have been orphaned. Where can I get a list of my attachments? Click on your display name in the upper right corner of the forums and pick "My Attachments" from the drop-down list. How can I tell an attachment is orphaned? If the PM has been deleted, you'll see a message like this in your attachment list: Unfortunately there is no message if the post has been deleted, so please check your old posts. We do purge old birthday threads every once in a while. Also some hosted projects have been shut down, so you may have orphaned attachments on one of those locations. Thanks!

    Things are getting serious here in the UK. I'm one of those with underlying health conditions which mean I'm at risk of dying from this virus due to how it can affect the lungs. My lung capacity is already quite poor, plus I have a suppressed immune system. Rob $ I went into quarantine this Monday morning before the government announced in the afternoon that it was recommended. We're to isolate ourselves for at least 3 months. Social distancing and working from home were recommended, as was staying away from pubs, cinemas, theatres and restaurants. A whole raft of measures were introduced the next day to assist businesses and we should be able to apply for a 3 holiday from our mortgages, but we're waiting for these to be implemented and available. Today, the closure of schools from this weekend was announced. Meanwhile, the numbers of those known to have the virus are growing exponentially, as are the numbers of those dying. We have been and are continuing to be sensible when it comes to food and loo roll etc., but the panic buying has been shocking. Sadly, I think there's much worse to come.
