      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!

      Surgery going to be necessary to correct the problem, perhaps?  Too soon to call?

      Are you sure it’s not Carpal Tunnel? It’s quite painful and your hand can be completely useless until the flair-up passes. I have it in both wrists. Lay your fore-arm on a table, palm side down and try to raise your hand. If you can’t or it’s very painful, go to the drug store and buy a carpal tunnel splint. Much cheaper than doctors. Doctors can operate in serious cases, but most of the time they’ll just tell you to buy a splint and wear it when you go to bed.

      Once had Tenosynovitis which also required a paddlepop stick styled support for treatment- the wrist had to be immobilised:

      Thankfully that was thirty years ago- and it never returned!
