      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. There's a reason I NEVER update my video drivers... I've had problems every single time. I lost my PC for a while tonight until I restored a Windows restoration point. Fortunately I had one just before updating the drivers.

      You wouldn't be on Windows 10, would you?


      It doesn't play nice with video drivers.

      Nope - Win 7. Jimi had to wait a bit, but now the newer drivers work fine with Win 10.

      Finally got it updated. Let's see how it performs...
