      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. Games on Sale

    Why would they sell games which are technically unplayable? For newer rigs is it a timing thing in the game engine or an OS/architecture issue perhaps addressed by running in a VM (think scummvm-like )
  2. I consider of getting a M.2 SSD

    Yes. Still suspect to the same errors when approaching the end of their life cycle.
  3. [RELz] TWMP Valenwood Regrown BETA

    If using Wrye Bash, "Clean Data" is another option.
  4. I consider of getting a M.2 SSD

    Another choice might be buy one even if it is not affordable when there is a payment plan on offer. Or to enter a competition to win one- or wait until they go on special. Corsair do a line in refurbished units- there might be cheaper makes e.g. Sandisk available as well.

    Altered States was a one of those movies where, for the sake of continuity something has always got to happen, no matter what. Seemed like a bit of a rush job. It's easy to see Chayefsky's problem with the direction, which illustrates how bloody hard it is to transmute such a plot to screen. Corigliano's music helped the hallucination sequences along as well:
  6. Windows API and Programming Questions

    Embedding a manifest with admin rights into the executable may be a thing. Else avoiding the unavoidable Admin prompt is a policy edit. Sorry.
  7. OBSE: Using GetCurrentRegions?

    It's the EDID value that I think is required. As noted, Editor IDs are not usable in game. What to do? One for Anda.
  8. OBSE: Using GetCurrentRegions?

    (Apart from 0) Does GetCurrentRegions return the actual ref ids or something else? Wonder if StrGetName can be tried in this context?
  9. Happy Birthday Sue!

    Many happy returns on the day!!!

    Don't want one of these in your hospital bed: How about a beautiful Diamond Python? A moderator of that site, a well known botanist, lives just down the road from here!

    If it isn't, it certainly weighs like one. The standard keys are a bit clicky but the special keys aren't, and for these slightly tactile fingers it doesn't feel like there are any springs under the keys. Rubber domes are a possiblilty but we''ll need to take the cover off! It was a bit cheaper than the G110 on the other machine, where most of the keyboards in that series are membrane. These days (as with the old ) mfg specs on the product pages can be lacking- will it change?

    This was on free to air tonight- but missed most of it. Hopefully next time.

    Disabling automatic updates was never 100% reliable for me- especially with Windows version updates & graphic drivers- maybe they have improved it since I used it last. In this case, it's disabling AU for a specific driver- as I quite like the PnP capabilities of Windows. In any case, there's a War On Waste over here. It's incumbent on the big players in this industry to realize the value of longevity in certain components- keyboards and mice- even some types of modems/routers. Support for legacy hardware esp. when it can be easily achieved, should be a top priority for all operating system MFGs and OEMs.
