      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. 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.


  2. 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.


  3. 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). 


  4. 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.


  5. 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. ;)


  7. 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.

    @AndalayBayI'm not leaving my home because some arsehole threatened me. Especially not one who should be gone in a month or so. Much as we'd all just like him to leave it is rather difficult to force someone out of rented accommodation.

     

    It's worth pointing out that we DO know exactly who all these women are - one is a well known Indie games dev whilst the other is a singer. Whilst the dev made a big show of not "naming names" Kotaku helpfully provided all the context.

    I was concerned that you were living alone with this guy. Just be careful. I’ve been watching Vengeance: Killer Neighbours and I’ve seen way too much of the stupidity that occurs when neighbours don’t get along. Mind you, that’s in the US where everybody has a gun. I’ve been assaulted by one of my neighbours three times. Police were called and talked to him. He’s an old crazy guy so we didn’t press charges. He’s too old to be a problem now, if he’s even still alive. His wife died several years ago and she was actually the source of a lot of the trouble.


  9. These events also occurred a long time ago. I know the “me too” thing has encouraged a lot of women to speak up, but these women aren’t going to the police, they’re just ranting on their blogs. We don’t even know their true identities other than what they claim they are. Not that we should, but the anonymity of the net feeds trolls. If something really happened, I can only hope these women stop complaining on the net and go to the police. Jeremy also deserves the chance to defend himself.

    @Sigurd Stormhand, it’s time to remove yourself from that situation. Are there other support groups that you could contact?


  10. I meant to reply to this earlier. I agree with Sigurd in this case. *shocker* LOL

    I remember reading an article in the newspaper that accused a swim coach of sexual assault and interference. I was a member of his swim club as a teenager. I had an extremely high heart rate and after a hard work-out, I could hardly breathe. He took my pulse from my wrist and he couldn’t even count my heart rate. He was so concerned that he drove me home. He never made a move on me. I read the article several years later. It seemed a girl was trying to accuse him of inappropriate behaviour several years after the fact or he was still coaching 20 years after I knew him. It wasn’t clear from the article. They were looking for more girls to come forward. I have no idea how the case developed - if charges were ever made. I suspect the case was dropped as I never heard anything about it on TV and the swim club was pretty big.

    My point is to wait for this to go through the legal system before passing judgement. It only seems to be a couple of women, so they might be simply upset that their personal relationship with Jeremy didn’t result in the advancement in their careers that they were looking for. As Sigurd said, at this point we should wait and see if more women come forward.


  11. Not really a sale, but Bethesda is giving away freebies in some of their games. I got some nice goodies in Fallout Shelter and Elder Scrolls: Blades. It’s to celebrate the Gamecom event.
