      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!

    Cool, I'll take a look. I watch all genre's, but like a good suspense movie. Black Butterfly is a lesser known but good suspense movie--with a neat twist at the end too.

    That's not the movie I was thinking about. I think I'll watch it though. Are there certain genres you cannot handle in general, AB, or just the occasional film or two?
  3. Random Stuffz

    Deliverance? The backwoods religious movie? How do you mean brutal?
  4. Random Stuffz

    Yeah, Boogie Nights was a later role he did well in. Was a good movie too.

    Friendly political talk, eh? You have to be careful--some people take politics very seriously.
  6. Random Stuffz

    I know nothing about Australian politics. Australia does have some wicked wildlife though. A kangaroo will try to disembowel you if you corner it. So I heard.

    That's pretty neat. It's quite a nice car, too; the real one, I mean.
  8. No, that's not it. Here it is.

    Happy birthday, Schtearn! I wish you all the best on your day.
  10. Games on Sale

    Oh yes, great sale. Bought Morrowind, Call of Cthuhlu and Doom 3 BFG--all for under 20 bucks.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  14. 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.
