      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!

    Well that was way more exciting than it should have been...
    We had a cat show in Nepean (near Ottawa) this weekend. The area got hit by at least one tornado! We arrived 10:30 pm Friday late and the entire city was pitch black! The winds were still super strong and pushed the car all over the road.
    The power is still out in most of the city, so the show had to be cancelled. We had no power in the hotel last night but it came back on this afternoon. We’ve decided to stay tonight and drive home tomorrow morning.
