      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 consider of getting a M.2 SSD

    Ah yes, that's it. Finite writes--don't want to wear out half the drive while the other half is still fresh.
  2. I consider of getting a M.2 SSD

    That and there's no need. Defragging was designed for platter and arm based drives (HDDs) to consolidate all fragmented files into one or a couple close-together places. This prevents the drives from spinning and the arm from moving across the platters more than necessary. If there is a file fragmented all over a platter, the drive has to work harder to read the file bcause it's scattered all over the place. Defrag moves the file together and the drive works less and is faster in return. SSDs don't suffer from the same fragmentation slowdown. Accessing memory takes the same amount of time no matter where the file is. In fact, SSDs are actually programmed to fragment files for some reason that I forget.

    Real world difference between M.2 and SATA SSD is not too noticeable. Game loads are a little more peppy. As is Windows cold boots. Maybe some file copies.
  4. I consider of getting a M.2 SSD

    Leo is asking if he should go M.2 or stick with SATA. I agree with Vorians to some degree--go with what you can afford or are willing to pay. If you have $500 go for a ~512GB M.2 or larger. But if the money needs to be spared as much as possible, go cheaper--a SATA drive is roughly half the price per GB than that of an M.2-based drive and offers decent performance. Beats the heck out of spinning platter drives. It just depends on what you want to pay. But, if you have money set aside for nothing but a new drive, try and go M.2; it's a modern option.

    They (SureAI) always make quality stuff. A great way to get your mind off RL for a couple hours.
  6. I consider of getting a M.2 SSD

    If your budget allows for it, M.2 is the best way to go. If you want to save a few bucks, a SATA drive is still viable, but M.2 supporting NVMe is a beautiful thing. From a cold boot, my Samsung 960 Evo doesn't even show the Windows loading screen. It takes more time to POST than it does to load Windows. They are more expensive, however.
  7. [RELz] TWMP Valenwood Regrown BETA

    puddles, just curious: is this the only release thread?
  8. [WIPz] Unofficial Morrowind Patch

    It is. It's from the team that made Nehrim, if you're familiar with that. They also made a couple Morrowind conversions.
  9. [WIPz] Unofficial Morrowind Patch

    There's a world to it, eh AB--breeding cats? I'm playing Enderal right now and am having a blast. If you want a professional quality mod to play, look no further. It also offers plenty of hours worth of gameplay (tons if you really explore and do the side quests), so it's worth the 6 or 8 GB download.
  10. [WIPz] Unofficial Morrowind Patch

    You're the cat whisperer, AB. Try and keep is easy, though; don't burn out.
  11. Oooohh. I guess I was misinformed. Good stuff, AB.
  12. [WIPz] Unofficial Morrowind Patch

    AB, are you busy with RL?
  13. I thought Bethesda ditched the Gamebryo engine after Oblivion. Wasn't Skyrim a custom engine--Creation Engine (I thought)? And Fallout 4 was based off of that? Gamebryo has it's roots in one of the Civilization games I thought? Ancient by technology standards.
  14. Windows API and Programming Questions

    Thanks Leo. I was more looking to write it myself, but you linked a cool site there.
  15. Random Stuffz

    Congrats! Adorable little baby.
