      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!

    It's always done that- all that we are seeing extra is the "not secure."
  2. What A LogiMess!

    Another little insight into this comes from hibernating with the keyboard, and then straight-way resuming- where there's no problem at all and the system is restored very quickly. That is when the volatile memory isn't compromised. Think it's good for up to a minute (at best) but this one will not be testing for any closer estimates!
  3. What A LogiMess!

    This rig came with a Logitech gaming mouse and keyboard as part of a gaming bundle- some time ago now, but the teething problems associated with their driver have all but turned into deep sockets! Firstly, a major inconvenience is that any native system hibernate key function is unavailable on the keyboard running only on keyboard.sys until a hibernate function macro is manually added through the Logitech driver UI interface. Which also means you have to launch the driver manually- manually because for some daft reason it never has and never will run properly when configured to run after Userinit. Now having the driver in the background is a risky business because it does a lot of weird and not so wonderful things- like checking your files. For example, this was logged from Process Monitor: LCore.exe 5396 QueryNameInformationFile C:..myexefile.. BUFFER OVERFLOW Yea, just copying any old file in explorer- so what's LCore doing with it- and why the Buffer overflow? Also, pressing the G2 function key always produces an endless series of these characters until G2 is pressed again: wdwwdw w wwwwwwwwwwwddwdwf wddwwwwwwddwdd wwddd wddwwwwwdddddwwwwwwwwdwdwwwddddddw wddwwwwwww w wwwwddddwwww wwww wwdw wwwweeww wwwwwwwwwww wwwwwwwwwwwww wwwwwwwwwww zzz wwwww ff zz zz wwwwwwwww z zz s f t w zzz www wwwwww w qqqqqw w z zz t w f ww wwwwf wwwwww w www wwwwf wf f f f wwwwwwwwwwwwwqwwwwddddwdddddwsf s zzz s w wwwww w wdwwdw w wwwwwwwwwwwddwdwf wddwwwwwwddwdd wwddd wddwwwwwdddddwwwwwwwwdwdwwwddddddw wwddwwwwwww w wwwwddddwwww wwww wwdw wwwweeww wwwwwwwwwww wwwwwwwwwwwww wwwwwwwwwww zzz wwwww ff zz zz wwwwwwwww z zz s f t w zzz www wwwwww w qqqqqw w z zz t w f ww wwwwf wwwwww w www wwwwf wf f f f wwwwwwwwwwwwwqwwwwddddwdddddwsf s zzz s w wwwww w As some of these issues were reported before the site was revamped to eharmony, one would hope the old posts are still accessible. But nothing- neither at the site- or the community, so that's efficent customer service. And could the driver also be causing odd things like the unavailable process handle and the shell interface blown out of the water (See the second post to this)?
  4. Happy Birthday Schtearn!

    Thanks guys, it's always wonderful out here in the boonies- except for the drought and the bush fires close by. And the smoke: Image courtesy of the local rag which is, like many of us, going broke.
  5. Server issue for a few sites

    @Leo, there might be an issue. Cleared the cache & all the cookies for those sites? Even a different browser? Other than that, your router may be hacked. Reset it for a new IP.
  6. Feedback thread

    Been doing that for the last five years- at least- or as far as these memory banks have stored it.

  9. 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 )
  10. I consider of getting a M.2 SSD

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

    If using Wrye Bash, "Clean Data" is another option.
  12. 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.
  13. Random Stuffz

    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:
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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?
  17. 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!
  19. What A LogiMess!

    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.

  22. What A LogiMess!

    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.
  23. What A LogiMess!

    Only when it feels like it.
  24. What A LogiMess!

    Worth trying to see if the "When I press the power button" is set on "Nothing" the keyboard's hibernate power button actually doesn't work like it's supposed to. And there's also the fiddly task of telling Windows not to keep automatically re-installing the old Logitech driver whenever it feels like it.
