      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. Apple's iPhones are not safe

    Don't think I've ever heard of Panda either, but if they're for Apple devices then that's no surprise.
  2. Star Trek - Discussion

    I agree with Sigurd about the unbalanced rebalance of gender portrayal compared to previous ST series (though I never noticed that there still tended to be a male bossing them all around) (I think Voyager was quite well balanced, with three females and four males making up the primary characters, where all the females were strong of character [except Kes in the first season or two, she was intentionally portrayed as rather weak and submissive]). In most episodes it tended to be two or three women charging around saving the day with minimal active male assistance; the men tended to be more sidelined and just being helpful when needed. Which doesn't bother me in the slightest because I quite enjoy seeing attractive women in television, but it did stand out. I have always felt (without making any effort to find out whether this may be true or just my imagination) that Star Trek: Discovery was never conceived as a Star Trek series in the first place. I think that originally it was some completely unrelated sci-fi space ship show, and the writers were persuaded to rewrite it as Star Trek because that would guarantee a higher viewership. To me this explains why the ship travel technology is so out of place in Star Trek, why the the Klingons aren't really the Klingons we're used to, and why the style of the episode plots is so different to the norms of Star Trek.

    However it still would have been nice to have known the bridge crew and understood their backgrounds in advanace of "their" episode two seasons later.
  4. Star Trek - Discussion

    If you haven't even watched a single episode, you really cannot make such an observation. You're just repeating things you saw in documentaries or what you understood from documentaries, which were based on the opinions of the creators of those documentaries, and so are not your own opinions. Discovery takes place between the pilot episode for TOS and the 2nd episode of TOS. In TOS episode 1, Pike was the captain, and Discovery is set after Pike visited the planet seen in the pilot, as Pike is reunited with characters from that TOS pilot episode (stock footage was used from the TOS episode for both a bit of flash-back, and rather tidily, to form the Previously on Star Trek for an episode starter). I agree with Sigurd that they completely failed to properly introduce the bridge crew, only making them into people when an episode demanded it. but I'm quite content that the show is focused on Michael, even if she is the adopted sister of Spock who was never mentioned by Spock in any previous episode or movie containing Spock (but again, I see Discovery as a reboot in a different timeline to the STs we've seen before).
  5. Star Trek - Discussion

    I understand that Tarantino is due to work on the next movie. Meanwhile new series Star Trek: Picard should be out fairly soon. Discovery is really good, it has to be treated as a reboot rather than a contination of the previous series' established facts (just like the movies are).
  6. A decent VR set?

    That was precisely the advice I was going to give. Wait until either the price for a brand new good/top range headset has dropped to about one fifth what it is now, or (more likely) VR has been abandoned again like it was the first time.
  7. Mesh Help

    I'm glad that we were all able to help.
  8. Steam - Discussion

    Steam didn't cause any of that. You just said your own over-reaction caused the need to reinstall all Steam games. Steam didn't break Windows System Restore Point either. If it's broken in your setup, that's a Windows error not a Steam error. Steam sometimes fails to detect that you are logged in when their servers are very busy. Usually just leaving Steam alone for 30 minutes is all you need to do to resolve it. As for the game not launching, the reinstall of just Steam would probably have resolved that, coupled with a reboot of the computer. However since you had unrelated system problems perhaps that was the cause of the game not launching: it may be that Windows should be accused of sometimes really sucking, not Steam.
  9. Feedback thread

    Go on then.
  10. Unique Landscapes

    He does, and so does the UL Council, from nearly three years ago. EDIT Checked with Mhahn, he had forgotten he'd posted that, and cannot vouch for the accuracy of the info from the person who told him that. Regardless, neither he nor I have received any response from Ynguatep in around 10 months.
  11. Unique Landscapes

    I'm on the UL Council, I know Mhahn and the two UL's he's working on I've been discussing Niben Wetlands with Mhahn over the last couple days, he hasn't mentioned that to me - was this something recent he told you? Ynguatep announced 10 months ago that Niben Wetlands was complete and just needed some help from the UL Council with some bits she was stuck on, but then never responded to my reply or later attempts to contact her. Even Mhahn tried to contact her for us about 5 months ago without success.
  12. Unique Landscapes

    Some screenshots for Corbolo River: Drakelowe from afar | The riverbank | Crayfish bay | more can be found on A .'s WIP thread on La Confrérie des Traducteurs
  13. Unique Landscapes

    Time for some Unique Landscapes bad news/good news. Firstly, sadly we are considering Niben Wetlands as abandoned now. It has been ten months since Ynguatep last communicated with us, and she has not visited Nexus in all that time. If anything changes around this, we'll let you know. But the good news is: we have a NEW Unique Landscapes being worked on! A0CdT is already hard at work on a landscape mod and we are proud to say that his work will be one of the next Unique Landscapes. Better known as A. in the French modding scene, A. is a site administrator at La Confrérie des Traducteurs, where, in addition to French mods, many English mods have been translated into French. Screenshots will come shortly (along with an update for the cell grid map for works in progress), but for now, already at around 65% completed, this is what A. is creating: Unique Landscapes: CORBOLO RIVER Completely remodels the banks of the Corbolo River from the Fort Cedrian bridge to the Reed River and in particular Drakelowe. It is around Drakelowe that the mod is focussed, out of the desire to make the place less accessible in the heart of the Nibenay Basin, closer to what could be a refuge for witches hunted over the years by the Cyrodiil vampire clans - less visible, more autonomous, and especially more mysterious. The old magic of the guardians still frightens the unwelcome, but for how long? Used once to reach the eastern mountains, an old trade route linking Fort Cedrian to the Crayfish Cave runs beside the river along its southern shore. With the Imperial troops repatriated to the centre of the Empire, the road was gradually abandoned by travellers and merchants. Time and goblin incursions have done their work and as in many places throughout the empire, the decline is being felt. The road becomes a bushy path, the fords have been erased by the floods and the old outpost probably only shelters brambles.
  14. Help needed to customize Firefox

    So that's what happened. I reset Firefox and that allowed me to reinstall all my addons again. Only one of my two computers was affected however.
  15. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    It's almost as if they make games for profit.
