      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. I just decided to put my HoK married to Ocato back into the Sims 3, and he's already fathered 5 children and made it to the top of the Culinary Career.  Ocato is Elven Chef Ramsay confirmed.

      @MalonnThe largest class I have is about 65 kids (but that's the high school band and I'm the assistant).  My classes from this year ranged from 16-65 kids.  The tough part was the art because so many of them needed a fine art credit and didn't want to do anything.

      Well good job.  Teaching is a noble profession, indeed.  Wouldn't it be nice if your pay was commensurate with your blood, sweat and tears?

      You're amazing!

  3. Almost done with my first year as a teacher.  Once Spring Break is over, it's the home stretch!

      It’s been crazy. We have a group of Freshman boys who think they run the school, despite multiple teachers writing them up all throughout the year. My only consolation is that they’re giving ALL their teachers a hard time, even those with 10+ years experience.  I remember one day I wrote up four of them in one single class because they refused to do any work and were loud as hell.

      Gosh. Sounds as if you're doing a good job of surviving! Congrats on completing a full year. :)

      Thanks!  I’ve got a few big things left to do, like take my 7th graders to a music festival and to their spring trip. But it’s pretty smooth from here.

       

      Also, what do you call the thing where you purposely avoid your Prom in high school only to be volun-told to chaperone the one for your students?  Is that called irony?  I think it is.

  5. The number of assignments that I have to put a zero down in the grade book is too damn high.

      Actually he teaches media studies, when that was part of the cirriculum and now teaches English.

    4. NobleShadowHunter

      NobleShadowHunter

      We'll take English too!  God knows there's a huge writing gap.

  6. I had a hankering for some really old games from my childhood and not gonna lie, being older has made me realize all of its damn plotholes.  Dammit, Naughty Dog.  I might actually do a post about it.

      So it's not as cool as it sounds, it's basically a 50 Shades of Grey-esque (sans bondage) + VtM.  I just might do a review of it and post it to the forums, kinda what Amaduan did for the Infernal City book.  I might also do the other books that are available on the mobile game app that it's from.  Trust me, there's plenty of cringe-worthy content to be had, and I think we could all use a good laugh.

  9. Fun Fact:  Apparently saying you don't like Mozart as a musician causes people to lose their minds.

      I think the only reason why Mozart is celebrated so much is that Academics are happy that they only have to teach/research one guy than a dozen.  Because laziness.

      Personally, I prefer Bach or Strauss. The music seems to have more emotion to it as opposed to fluidic melody.

    4. NobleShadowHunter

      NobleShadowHunter

      Mozart reminds me of the guy who likes to hear the sound of his own voice and never shuts up.  Strauss, mainly Papa Strauss, is my jam.

  10. First week of student teaching is in the books.  Only 14 more to go!

  11. Not sure why, but every time I look at the leaders in Civilization VI, they all seem like they'd be a ragtag bunch of misfits if they were ever shoved together into a situation.

      Which one?  Civ VI or  III?  Edit:  Scratch that.  I was thinking of ratings as "5/5" vs "E for Everyone."  I swear I have reading comprehension. 

    3. AndalayBay

      AndalayBay

      Yeah I meant the ESRB ratings. :)

      I still would have loved to have seen Toga Teddy or Disco-Fever Cyrus the Great.  So much missed opportunity.

  12. One last Final to go, and it's my teaching certification. *Chanting*  Almost done!  Almost Done!

      Thanks!  The cough has finally died down and my voice is just about back.  Just in time for the Recital on the 10th.

      Apparently this person has a deviantart/Tumblr where there's more pinups of the Founding Fathers.  Hamilton is arguably the fiercest of the bunch.

      I have no idea and I don't think I want to know. :P

      I think the answer to that is in same location as the number of licks it takes to get to center of a tootsie pop.

  16. Here's hoping Houston has clear skies for the next few weeks.

      Our Campus ministry is apparently trying to figure out a way to send people on mission trips to both Houston and India (who also currently suffer from massive flooding as well). Oh, and BC is free to take the water.

      Some of our Houston students have returned, but not all of them. Everyone that I know that went looking for family has found them, so that's great to hear. Independent groups of students went down this past weekend to help volunteer. A few students didn't come back but that's because they decided to go back home to help their families rebuild and resettle. Some students went back to their hometowns only to find something that looked like an aquatic version of Fallout.

  17. So hear me out: A wild west, semi-post apocalyptic fantasy containing a gunslinger, Clint Eastwood-esque elf.

      Clint Elf-wood would have his moments, but as a deputy in a stretched-thin town, one can hardly blame him.

      Main characters (plus human MacGuffin) along with general opening plot have been written. At least I can take heart that the first few pages will be nothing but flashbacks to landscapes and disembodied figures. Now THAT I can do.

  18. I'm trying to design a shirt for homecoming this fall. I want to stick with a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy theme, so I'm looking for quotes that both referrence the book and can be applied to homecoming. Any help is apprieciated!

      What about just "Be Happy"? Surely that phrase is somewhere to be found in Adam's works. :P

    3. NobleShadowHunter

      NobleShadowHunter

      The initial draft of the design has a blue wickiup (what we build during homecoming for Tipi Village) with a thumb in the middle and the text "The Hitchhiker's Guide to Homecoming." I put "Don't Panic," on the back but that's just a placeholder for now.

      She'll be going in soon to see her primary care physician, who was furious when he heard what happened. He's one of those doctors who stays late so that he can spend as much time as needed to care for his patients, regardless of a person's insurance.

    3. Sue

      Sue

      He sounds a good Dr to have on your side :)

      That's good and I'd definitely log a complaint against the hospital staff.

      Well he's baseball, and how could I just attack him? I know nothing about him! It's not like I focused just on the merit, or lack there of, of his argument instead of trying to pull an ad-hominem. Oh wait, I did just that.

      He's already gotten a verbal bitchslap from some of the music faculty and he tried to say I never told him anything. Good thing I CC'ed my horn professor.

      That was smart. Good for you. Time to keep your horn professor in the loop for any further dealings with the guy.
