      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. Windows API and Programming Questions

    Messing with Windows authentication is probably not a good place to start; there is a lot of arcane legacy stuff in there to confound the beginner. Besides, if you really want something difficult to do in Python you should try machine learning. It looks like TensorFlow is now supported in Windows (used to be just Unix/Mac).
  2. Windows API and Programming Questions

    What exactly are you trying to do? Perhaps you can provide a bigger picture that includes why you are trying to gain access to a privileged registry key.
  3. What are you listening to right now?

    This was too funny to leave out.
  4. Skyrim VR

    It looks like Bethesda wants to get into the headgear game: Get 'Skyrim VR' Free With Sony's New PSVR Bundle. An interesting player in the mix.
  5. Movie Quote Game

    Yes, originally released in 1927. There was a re-release in 1984 with a soundtrack by Giorgio Morodor that included music by Queen, Pat Benetar, Billy Squire, and a bunch of others. Really brought the flic to life.
  6. Movie Quote Game

    Ok, some background and another quote. This movie is really old - I doubt that anyone here was around for the original (certainly not me). It has been refurbished and re-released many times, with a notable re-release happening about thirty years ago. Here is another quote: Women and men, let no one miss today - ! Death to the machines - !
  7. Movie Quote Game

    A favourite movie of mine, but no. This one is older than that.
  8. Movie Quote Game

    The Kingdom of Heaven is an interesting pick, but no. My movie is quite a bit older.
  9. Movie Quote Game

    Ok, in a somewhat different direction... Where are the people, father, whose hands built your city?
  10. Movie Quote Game

    Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice. Now we are in trouble.
  11. Movie Quote Game

    Night of the Living Dead?
  12. Movie Quote Game

    Caine Mutiny? Sounds like Bogart.
  13. The Witness

    I have recently encountered a new game that has caught me by surprise. The Witness is a puzzle game based on mazes. I was concerned when I first played the game that it had limited scope - the first mazes were pretty basic puzzle-book stuff. It didn't take long, however, to discover much more devious puzzles that involved internal symbols, environmental cues, sound cues, and so on. I am currently stuck on one with multiple internal symbols each with their own rules that need to be combined come up with a coherent solution. There is a definite addictive aspect coupled with a frustration component here. This game has a first-person exploration style like many games such as Myst. The graphics are not even close to Myst level but are sufficient. I personally find the experience to be quite clean. I have not finished the game yet so I can not comment on the quality of the end game. Based on my experience to date I would recommend it to anyone who likes classic logic puzzles such as those presented in games such as Myst. I have not found any time-boxed puzzles or deadly dead-ends - the latter is just as well as there does not appear to be an explicit "save" operation. A big thumbs up for me so far.

    How about Demon Seed?
