      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. 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!

    So - Chrome now reports the site does not have a valid security certificate and flags this up by giving you the "Not Secure" mark in the address bar.

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


  3. 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:

     


  4. 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 :P ) mfg specs on the product pages can be lacking- will it change?

    Media executives for the most part - people who make decisions on what's on television - are really some of the most ill-informed people when it comes to the news itself. The choices that are made are entertainment-based: Who's pretty? Who speaks English? These are things that I'm asked when I'm pitching a story. They're not going to watch a bunch of bodies exhumed from a gravesite, and seeing law enforcement held accountable; that's not something that's savory.

  6. 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.
