      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!

  1. How many saved game files do you have in the directory? The game can really get bogged down if there are a lot of saved game files. I would try moving the files to another directory (as a backup) and just keeping a few files in the saved game directory. Also, don't use the Autosave. Disable all the Autosave options in the ini. There are three of them, I believe. Autosaves and Quicksaves get corrupted quite easily.


  2. Fallout Shelter was originally released in 2015. I had played it briefly when it first came out, but got bored with it quickly. A few months ago I decided to give it another try and I now play it quite regularly. If you haven’t played it in a while, you might want to check it out again. It has several quest lines that are fun to play. It’s also quite easy to play for free.

    Bethesda doesn’t really update the game anymore, but they do release hidden updates that provide holiday events. As they did with Blades, they’ve released a Halloween update. If your living quarters and diners are fully upgraded, then they will have a Halloween theme if you’re using the default. If you’ve changed to another theme, you can pick the Halloween theme from the theme switcher. There is also a Halloween based quest line.


  3. I haven’t been playing this much, except to open it each day to claim the daily reward. It had become really boring and my character was overmatched in most quests and daily jobs, which were too tedious anyway.

    Well Bethesda has just released a Halloween update. The town is now in night mode 24x7, with Halloween decorations. Beth has also added new quests, which start at level 12 so even my character can do them. They have new dungeons and wilderness areas to go with the quests. As an added bonus, you can reset your character for free for a short time. I may take advantage of that as I made some bad choices when levelling. My guy is level 47, but most jobs were listed as too difficult. One of the changes that will benefit me is that now spells can’t be interrupted! Finally! I notice that one quest that was labelled as 5 stars previously is now listed as 2 stars, so I’m wondering if Beth tweaked a few other things too.


  4. It’s a known issue, but I don’t remember the cause or if there’s a solution. I seem to recall there’s no solution but to keep taking items out of the container until the item you’re looking for shows up, then take that and put the rest of the stuff back. Having said that, I’d have a look at EngineBugFixes to see if it addresses this issue.


  5. From what I read of his notes, it sounds like he’s trying to figure it out too. Did you try creating the text file to see what it has? I saw a bunch of comments about figuring out what the numbers mean.


  6. Good to know about Panda. I’ve never heard of them before. The way they presented the article was odd to me and then they had the ad for their anti-virus software at the bottom. I just think they should be more unbiased if they are reporting news like that. As Sigurd said, this was first reported at least a week ago and we got the updates a few days ago, perhaps even a week. I don’t install updates right away because they often include features and changes that I don’t like.


  7. Yep. :rofl: In reality, the police wouldn’t bother. We had our first car stolen and the police didn’t even bother investigating. It was a shit box and I was actually glad it was gone. :P The cops are usually after high-end theft rings. Depending on the size and sophistication of the ring, it can take several years to track them down and gather evidence, but quite a few have been caught. Being able to take the time to investigate and make a case ensures prosecution.


  8. I mentioned the Statute of Limitations in one of my previous posts. I also said that Jeremy could counter with a libel suit.

    There is no Statute of Limitations in Canada on indictable crimes like murder, rape, kidnapping and major theft (over $5000). 


  9. The woman’s posts are so long, I can’t read the whole thing. Perhaps that’s part of her intent. I find it disturbing that she’s able to post all these accusations but nobody is demanding that she take her claims to the police. She says that she complained to various authorities, but none of them were the police. She does just enough to make it seem like her complaints are valid, but doesn’t actually take them to the authorities that could actually investigate and press charges if any are warranted.


  10. It could be an error with the wizard. There seem to be some issues with the recent versions of Wrye Bash. I recommend backing up your Ob XP ini file and copying the changes over to the new one. Run the wizard to install, but don’t customize the ini.

    As it is, all such claims are hurtful and cruel, and it should be in the statutes that such claims should never be publicised until they have been dealt with in court. 

    Hear hear!

    This exact sort of thing is why I do not believe we should even be allowed to discuss someone being accused, arrested, jailed, or in any way deprived of their rights without it having gone to trial and a conviction handed down by the jury.

    Exactly.

    If Jeremy's accusers don't talk to the police and seek charges being laid against him, then he will have a perfectly valid counter-suit: libel. In that case, I know exactly what I'm talking about because I've hired a lawyer to send certain individuals a nicely worded letter explaining that we would bring charges of libel if they didn't shut up and stop their accusations. DBC got released six months later. ;)


  12. The problem is that there are women, and men for that matter, that will falsely accuse a celebrity in the hopes of getting a financial settlement out of court. This is why the “victims” don’ t go to police. They don’t want justice. They want revenge and money. I’m not talking about this case in particular.

    There are several cases of sexual assault plaguing ride share services like Uber and Lyft right now. Drivers are intercepting other driver’s rides, telling the fare that the other driver can’t come, or the fare doesn’t confirm the driver, then the driver takes the fare to a quiet location and assaults them. These victims are going to police and reporting the crime, immediately. The victims are also suing the companies, alleging that proper background checks aren’t being done. The drivers are removed from the program and that protects other people as the police begin their investigation.

    I will start believing these women when they start following the legal process.
