      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!

    @Burt Reynolds: RIP They did an amazing promo for the rookie HAWK TV show- Video unavailable it seems. Following snippet is in better res: But he was lucky enough later on to score some really good roles in some great movies!

    Well, was considering expanding on the concept of "Video Unavailable, the Movie"- but that has been taken- at least partially: They loved it over at Rotten.

    Would it be the actual video? Heaps of "video unavailable" to choose from: Or they could give us a test pattern or something to jazz it up: Headache!

    Political turmoil over here- here's the latest:

    You must be here. Does it make a sound?

    Ahm- the picture of it is on a dual carriageway highway? Doing 20 km/h and a helmet is required? No windows fitted for obvious reasons - including weight. Truly amazing.
  7. [RELz] BAIN Wizard Installs for UI Mods.

    I certainly did, and continue to do so. But your feedback is welcome as always. The reason why those files were put there was if OXP was installed over vanilla. With best intentions -- but... With the offending files out, it's perfectly safe to rerun the BAIN over OXP as there are no conflicts. Now to check the other mods! @AndalayBay: It's likely the reason for the users running into those errors was they didn't run the wizard- but just selected the packages in the RHS panel of the WB ui. In fact- they couldn't have run the wizard as there was a syntax error in the OXP section!

    It's always done that- all that we are seeing extra is the "not secure."
  9. [RELz] BAIN Wizard Installs for UI Mods.

    @leo: It's what I said. Anda is saying something different. Files removed from the package. If anyone has questions about the wizard and OXP please direct them here.
  10. 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!
  11. [RELz] BAIN Wizard Installs for UI Mods.

    Think those files were from the Nexus XP Updated- is that drastically different from the WIP? If so, I can put a warning that this is only "compatible" with that version of XP 4.3.2 at least. The BAIN install actually detects the OXP and urges that it should be uninstalled when the wizard starts up. and that continuing is for advanced users only. In the spirit of co-operation (we're all part of the same community aren't we?) it might not be such a bad idea to include the newest XP files in the install, since so many of the users will continue to persist on installing stuff in the wrong order. It's probably a nicer way of doing it- for us as well as the users. Edit: Meh- maybe not. It won't work in the scenario where the UI is installed after XP, and then XP is uninstalled leaving the users with the wrong files- unless of course- they re-install the UI. There should be a strong warning in the first instance when that is the case. The other rather obvious scenario is when the user reruns the UI wizard to tweak stuff while XP is active. They shouldn't want to do that? And yes it's going to overwrite stuff- so we have to set an exclude list for the new version of XP as well.
  12. 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.
  13. [RELz] BAIN Wizard Installs for UI Mods.

    I see the issue now. These are the files modified by OXP: They have been modified since? That's a worry. In any case the issue won't arise if the users install the UI first, as is warned about (as well as in the original mods). Will get around to it- eventually- rather busy now.
  14. 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.
  15. Feedback thread

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