      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!

    She’s got a gorgeous coat. Very pretty. I’m #8.
  2. COVID-19 - What a Mess

    The province has closed all playgrounds and are really getting pissed off at folks who are ignoring the closures. People are ripping down the signs and removing the caution tape. The province is threatening fines of at least $750 and all the way up to $10000 and jail time. Cases are climbing and people are dying. It’s still mostly folks with pre-existing conditions but younger people with no pre-existing conditions are dying as well. Coronavirus has now killed more people than SARS.
  3. COVID-19 - What a Mess

    If you haven’t been affected by this, you must live in the middle of nowhere! The Canada-US border has been partially closed. The border between France and Germany has checkpoints for the first time since the war. My husband is now working from home. We’re short on toilet paper and can’t find any. The city has shut down all attractions and now even bars and restaurants have been told to close and only offer online delivery if they can. We’re worried about the financial impact of all this. The province has passed various legislation so that hourly workers and part-time staff don’t lose their jobs. All major sports leagues have shut down or suspended their seasons. Many organizations and individual players are donating funds to support the hourly staff that work in the facilities. Why all the fuss? The virus itself isn’t that serious FOR HEALTHY PEOPLE. The problem is that the virus is virulent and will spread quickly if people mix, as they would while travelling and commuting to work. If allowed to spread, it will infect those that are susceptible, and that’s why the WHO and more local health agencies are demanding what they’re calling “social distancing”. You can have the virus but not have any symptoms, so that’s the reason for the abundance of caution. In all this mess, we are trying to breed a couple of our purebred cats while also having a visiting female from another breeder! So one of our males is under pressure to perform. If the females do get pregnant, the gestation is nine weeks and the kittens won’t be ready for adoption for another twelve weeks, so hopefully all will be well by then.

    In a bid to keep people happy at home, the Ontario government will now allow restaurants to deliver booze when we order a meal online! I imagine it would be very expensive, but now we can get alcohol delivered with our food.

    Hey I had a 50% chance of being right.
  8. COVID-19 - What a Mess

    Yeah they finally announced that yesterday. Once you guys pulled your team as well, there was no sense trying to have them. The pandemic might be over by July (we hope so anyway) but athletes will have gone several months without training at that point. Well at least they’ll be no worries about the facilities being finished!
  9. COVID-19 - What a Mess

    The Canadian Olympic team has been pulled from the summer Olympics if they aren’t postponed. Australia and Poland have done the same. Ontario has ordered that all non-essential businesses shut down. Basically grocery stores and pharmacies will remain open. The Ontario government has some sense: beer and liquor stores have been deemed essential and they will remain open. Yes, they know better than to expect Canadians to remain quarantined at home without beer, wine or liquor.

    Look at those whiskers and eye brows! She’s a cutie.

    What’s a “sala”? Anyway cats are not dogs. Yeah, no kidding, but people are more familiar with dogs and expect the same behaviour. You can’t crate cats for the night, like you can with dogs. Anyway the pattern for cats is hunt, eat, sleep, so you need to mimic that if you want them to follow a pattern. Personally, I don’t. In a domestic situation, hunt is replaced by play, so you need to play with your cat, eat is obvious, as is sleep. As I said, I don’t follow the pattern. I leave food down all the time for my cats and I have a toy box for them so they can grab their toys and play when they want. The ones that have access are only too happy to join us in bed when they’re done playing and eating.
  12. COVID-19 - What a Mess

    I haven’t heard of any cases in any Scandinavian country, so hopefully those measures will keep you clear.
  13. COVID-19 - What a Mess

    I guess we’ll see what happens in Iran. Last I heard they aren’t taking any of the warnings seriously and are still running open markets as part of a holiday.
  14. COVID-19 - What a Mess

    On a more cheerful note: some Canadian distilleries are producing hand sanitizer or 65% alcohol for sterilization to combat those who stockpiled those products and are now trying to sell them for a profit. They are selling the hand sanitizer for $3, which is less than the regular price and the alcohol is being given away for free to those that need it.
  15. COVID-19 - What a Mess

    Wow, lot’s of misinformation there. First, Justin Trudeau does not have COVID-19. His wife does so both of them are quarantining themselves. Justin is the son of Pierre Elliot Trudeau who was our Prime Minister in the late 60’s and 70’s. He told you Americans to fuck off when you wanted to forward base your nuclear weapons in Canada. Nixon was the American President at the time. We are actually disappointed in Justin. We were hoping he would be more like his dad and tell everybody to fuck off when needed. Coronavirus, or COVID-19, is not a bioweapon. Household pets, like cats and dogs, carry Coronavirus, but it is a different strain. Coronavirus is carried in farm animals and this particular version came out of the open animal markets they have in China. They have live animals in unsanitary conditions and they slaughter them there. Coronavirus is a group of viruses and the term describes what they look like, so the proper term for the virus is COVID-19. SARS and MERS were previous instances of this virus and they also came from animals. Basically Coronavirus is your common cold. COVID-19 is a respiratory virus which is not serious for healthy people. The people that are dying from it have underlying medical conditions, like poor lung function. Coronavirus happens all the time. As I said, it’s your common cold. COVID-19 is more serious and we dealt with this kind of virus previous when we had SARS and MERS so it hasn’t been a long time. COVID-19 isn’t as deadly as SARS, but it’s much more virulent, which means it spreads quite easily. That’s the reason it has been labelled as a pandemic. If we allow it to spread, it could mutate and become really nasty so we’re being told to practice social distancing and governments are shutting down borders. Bioweapons are meant to kill a lot of people and be controllable. COVID-19 is neither.

    Our news is pretty good. They verify their stories. They also have a lot of interviews with the Minister of Health and other officials directly involved, although our Minister of Health is a nitwit that has a flair for the dramatic. Our stations also carry the announcements from the head of the WHO in person. They carry the feed or whatever. I know you guys have a big problem with news as drama. Even the more reliable networks have been found to not be verifying their stories. There was a big hullabaloo about that a few years ago. I guess they’re all competing and in such a hurry they just post shit before it’s confirmed. That does sound paranoid! But yeah our government sneaks shit in all the time. We don’t need the virus for distraction, our government can do shit without approval anyway. The previous provincial Liberal government cancelled a bunch of building contracts for votes and it cost taxpayers billions. Now the PC government is doing the same. Both CTV and CBC are offering their news channels for free right now so you guys might be able to find them on cable or satellite. The CBC is the Canadian equivalent of the BBC in Britain.
  17. COVID-19 - What a Mess

    The government has just announced similar assistance here. It’s a $80 billion plan. Mortgage deferral, increased child benefits, bi-weekly income for those without EI, our income tax deadline has been extended until June 1st for individuals, Aug 31st for small business. We’ll be getting money back from our tax return anyway. I don’t know if this is for all schools, but many colleges and universities have reverted to online classes only. The University of Toronto has told all students to leave their dorms, but will make arrangements in “exceptional” circumstances. There are a lot of international students who won’t be able to get home. Most of Canada’s airlines have halted international flights, except repatriation flights to return Canadians home. Lots of panic buying here too. In fact there have been fist fights. I really hate how ugly come people can be. We are running out of toilet paper and can’t find any. We have a large online grocery delivery network and we’ll be taking advantage of that. The city has lifted the ban on supply deliveries to stores so deliveries can happen 24 hrs a day, so hopefully stores will get stocked again soon. The city of Toronto is super quiet. It’s downright creepy. A subway trip that would normally take at least an hour apparently only takes 15-20 min now. Lots of empty seats now when normally people would be packed in like sardines.
  18. COVID-19 - What a Mess

    Stick to reliable news sources and ignore most stuff you read online. Quite frankly, it’s just the flu. As I said earlier, the problem is that you can carry the virus with absolutely no symptoms so you can pass it along to others. If you come into contact with someone with existing conditions like respiratory issues, the virus can be serious. We’re getting very annoyed because it would seem the health experts would prefer people to starve to death rather than pass on the flu to someone else. Restaurant staff are being laid off and told to apply for EI. However they will only get reimbursed for their basic wage, which is below the minimum wage because the government takes their tips into account. They will not be able to afford housing and food on EI. The border between the US and Canada has now been closed to all except “essential services”. Don’t worry, the flow of illegal drugs and guns won’t be affected.
  19. COVID-19 - What a Mess

    Ontario and Alberta have just declared states of emergency, which allows the government to pose more restrictions and free up funds to support hospitals and long-term care facilities. All restaurants and bars are closed unless they can offer take-out or delivery. Our public schools are also closed for an extra two weeks, so March break will be three weeks long. We’re hearing similar stories from around the world.

    Dark Brotherhood Chronicles: Awakening Version 1.2.6 Introduction Once upon a time, our name was whispered in the dark corners of the deepest caves and feared in the highest towers. Once upon a time, we bore the blood of emperors on our hands. Once upon a time, we were mystery, and secret, and the greatest in the Empire would gather our rituals to be allowed to grovel at our feet. Once upon a time, we scorned Mephala Herself, stole Her treasures, and found a master far beyond what She ever was. But now... Now, we are scattered, the Sanctuaries sealed. Now, the blood you have on your hands is that of your own family. Now, our secrets are broken, for we never saw the traitor in our midst. Now, the body of your master and mentor hangs in Applewatch, and the Night Mother herself scorns us for our failure. Where is the power of Sithis now? In the aftermath of the traitor's destruction, the Listener of the Dark Brotherhood now faces new challenges. Shadowy threats from without and little trust from within. The Sanctuaries have been locked, the Dark Family hidden. But still, someone has found them. Someone seeks to wipe the weakened assassins from the face of Tamriel. The greatest secrets of the Black Hand must be unearthed if the Listener is to save the Dark Brotherhood from extinction. Or perhaps he will aid the Brotherhood's greatest enemy. The Dark Brotherhood Chronicles is a large-scale quest mod. It boasts many new NPCs, locations, and both a large main questline and sidequests, delving deep into the shadowed history of the Dark Brotherhood. Features: Choice. You have the power to decide not only how to perform within quests, but whether or not to accept them in the first place. If you turn down some quests, they are no longer available. Save your game before talking to an NPC. Interaction. In some quests, the clothes you wear can affect an NPC's reaction. You can also taunt your target before the kill... Decision. Some of our quests are disturbing. These aren't your morally ambiguous, or even justified, assassination missions. In tDBC, you are a heartless assassin, and will be called upon to perform reprehensible and grotesque acts. However, there are alternatives to these reprehensible acts: you can choose the path your character takes rather than being shoehorned into a purely villainous role. Several new exterior locations and dungeons, including several new sanctuaries. A wide variety of NPCs, with their own distinct character traits. Custom rumours and greetings. Lots of books and notes that enhance the lore and expand on the recent events in the Brotherhood. Quest Notes: The quests that comprise the main quest are neutral until the end. Then you will be forced to make a choice that will earn you fame or infamy. Some of the side quests will earn infamy points. However, they are optional, so you can turn them down if you don't wish to do them. If you wish to complete all the side quests, do so before starting the final quest. You will be asked to retrieve a dagger. Finish all the side quests before handing the dagger over. Awakening will end once the final quest is finished and the side quests will no longer be available. tDBC is aimed at characters level 15 and over. Companions and enemies are scaled, but quests are meant to be hard so higher level characters are recommended. Requirements OBSE version 20 or newer MenuQue version 9a or newer Patches Open Cities Better Cities Unique Landscapes Roads of Cyrodiil Patch ImpeREAL City Unique Districts - see download link If you are using the Skingrad Outskirts module for Unique Landscapes, grab the 1.02 or newer update as that resolves some conflicts with the area outside Skingrad. Translations French translation by Sita Compatibility Awakening is incompatible with: Anvil Bay Expansion (unconfirmed - assumed due to pre-patch conflicts with BC) Duke Patricks - Fresh Kills Now Alert The NPCs (this one breaks the final quest in Awakening) A Brotherhood Renewed (AI package conflicts - both mods are too similar to be run at the same time) The Return of the Dark Brotherhood. Same reason as A Brotherhood Renewed. Minor cosmetic issues with: Reclaiming Sancre Tor (road passes under one of our locations - can go around) Gallery Screenshots and concept drawings for the project: tDBC Gallery Special thanks to: Arthmoor for being at our beck and call to answer at least 10,000 questions for the last year and for stepping up and giving us a new home when we needed it most. Our beta testers for playing through the entire mod at least 47 times. They are never going to want to see Awakening ever again. And a special call-out to omeletted for her thoroughness, being a royal nitpicker, breaking it in ways we never thought it could be broken, and methodically killing every single one of our NPCs at least twice.

  22. Making every sigil stone I get Trascendent

    I moved your post, and several others, to the proper forum. That other forum is for tutorials, not modding questions. To answer your question, I believe you have to set the flags for the levelled list to work. I think there is some information on this in the CS wiki: https://cs.elderscrolls.com/index.php?title=Main_Page I’m pretty sure there’s a tutorial on creating a levelled list. In terms of scripts, they are in their own section so if the plugin has any scripts, you would see them in the list of items in the left pane in TES4Edit.
  23. The Dr Who Thread

    I’ve watched New Tricks a few times. I think I caught the last two seasons. Jodie is much younger and thinner.
  24. The Dr Who Thread

    I knew we had a discussion on Dr Who somewhere, but couldn’t remember where. As I said in the Random Stuffz thread, I’ve started watching for the first time ever. I’ve tried in the past, but it was always too campy for me. It’s still pretty campy, but I find the new doctor engaging and funny.
  25. Random Stuffz

    I used DDG for a while, but found the search results lacking. I don’t like being tracked, but just couldn’t find stuff. I will confirm that stuff shows up in DDG that doesn’t show up in Google though.
