      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. If you’ve noticed some issues when visiting lately, that was me getting IPv6 working on the server.  I wound up getting help from Linode. All fixed now! If you are using IPv6 you should now get a full IPv6 response.

      Sounds as if they had a couple of "Teksavvy" work experience ops in for the day.

      I got a test modem from them today, so I’m back online for now. I’m going to see if I can “repair” my old modem before buying a new one. The test modem is an upgrade, but I don’t really need the extra features.

      We’ve enabled IPv6 on the test modem, but I have no idea if I’m visiting with IPv6. I probably have to switch to my static IPv6 account.
