      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!

    @Amadaun This is who I was referring to in the other thread. Her name was Cyra, Persian for "Moon". My "baby" from 1998-2015. Ironically, also the year my twins were born, so she briefly got to meet my new babies.

    I think we're both required to post kitty pictures in the proper thread now.

    Hah, there's a coincidence for ya. Looks like my "baby' too, though her name was Cyra.

    Hey, I once got an entire Discussion forum removed from the front page because the site owner didn't like my opinions.  Beat THAT.
     
    All joking aside, anyone arguing in good faith is welcome, and the opinions they post here don't make any difference in the rest of the forum.  Forum debates are my late-night guilty pleasure and I'd be SO sad if they didn't exist/agreed with me.   And just because I might disagree with them on RL stuff doesn't mean they can't hand me my ass when it comes to modding/writing/art/etc.  *bows before superior skills*  

    Work your research skills, people!

    That's not how debate works.  And I take offense he's the "deviation to the norm."  I might disagree, be sarcastic, or even angry, but we do NOT lock a thread because someone has an unpopular opinion.  Dark Listener is a member of this forum and he deserves a space to post his thoughts.

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but just because the news is bad doesn't mean that it's fake.  I know that reading the news can cause depression and anxiety.  That's normal!  And if it's bad for your mental health, you should avoid it on bad days.  
     
    But you can't just dismiss it as fake because it's death and destruction.  For me, where I live and this time of year, wildfires are an issue.  Wildfires terrify me.  I don't want to read about them.  I'd do anything to think they're not a threat.  But if I don't keep up on the weather reports and the fire danger, I will be caught unawares.  And I won't know if the smoky haze is coming from a fire near to me or one 800 miles away.  
     
    Sometimes I have to face that phobia in order to be informed about my own safety.  I don't call the fire map "fake news" because it stresses me out.
     

    Er...they weren't.  Republicans, I mean.  Or even in a party.  There weren't political parties until 1787.  The first party was the Federalists.  In 1796, the second was the Democrat-Republicans.
     
    ...yes, that was the actual name.
     

    Yeah...no.  There's at least 15000 Daesh left.  And any reduction is on the part of the local middle east police put in place by Obama.  Nothing to do with Trump.  He hasn't fought anything other than really angry groundskeepers because he put his golf cart on the green.
     
    That's all I can handle because it's 3:30am.  But give me links to back up what you've said.

    So!  How many bullets do I deserve as a liberal feminist queer lady who teaches Sunday School?  It's clearly not ALL the bullets because I'm white, but also more bullets for pointing out that literally every conservative called Obama Hitler/socialist/communist/TOTALLY HITLER and you're all a bunch of lying hypocrites.

    Okay, normally I'd be very snarky, but you actually don't seem to know anything about what a safe space is.  And that's okay!  But let me explain.
     
    A safe space (what you wrote as a "space room") isn't what you think it is.  To sum up, let's say that you're part of a computer game club.  People who hate gamers want to come in.  But you know they'll only bully and shame the gamers. Maybe they'll let everyone know that they're gamers.  Maybe they'll try to beat them up or even kill them because they don't like gamers.
     
    Therefore, you have the right to throw these people out.  You have the right to a safe space where you won't be hurt.  They're not allowed to be in the gaming club when they absolutely HATE gamers.
     
    And that's what a safe space is.  It's not cookies and crayons and chocolate (though I'm 100% behind those things for all groups because chocolate) - It's claiming a place for people who accept us for who we are.  And not want to kill us.
     
    ...
     
    That's not an exaggeration.  
    People celebrate our deaths by torture.  People blame us for natural disasters.  They kill us.  They rape us.
     
    You're seeing the "same shit over and over" because we - women and queer people - keep getting raped and murdered.
     
    P.S.  The next time you call my life "fake news" I will stop being nice and start being pissed.  Please listen to what we queer women have dealt with.

    At approaching 6 months Pip is as big as Blue and almost as heavy.  He's a sweet and playful kitten apart from recently deciding my left leg is a scratching post when I'm putting his food into a bowl!  Here's some recent photos...

    As promised:  My nephew's Minecraft world. 
     
    I was instructed to build a giant cactus "up to the clouds."
     

     
    A farm, as designed by a five-year-old.  Lots of flowers were required.  And snow.
     

     
    A house, as designed by a five-year-old.
     

    I needed to build a stone fence around a lava pool "so nobody gets hurt by it."
     

     
    Monster island. 
     

     
     
    There's more to come.    We're building a "skyscraper" and every floor has to be different.

    Now the kittens. They are three weeks old in these pictures. They're just starting to stand and can't walk yet, but they can wrestle. The light brown has figured out the bunny kick!

    There are a number of possibilities that spring to mind:
    Labelling them before tossing into a drawer
    Hanging them in a prefered order from a piece of string strung across the wall
    Making your butler organise them
    Placing them carefully into the drawer in a particular placement instead of tossing them in, using blutack to hold them in place
    Blutacking them to the wall
    Replacing them all with one external SSD so that you don't even need to organise USB drives
    Sacrificing your first born to the dark gods to ensure that you will always retrieve the desired USB drive from the drawer without having to organise them
