      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!

    Lol!! You've an old 70's era CPU? You, ma'am, have been building computers a long time.

    That's some heavy duty equipment in that picture.

    That'll do it. Good stuff. What's "libel"?

    Assembly is hard to look at. That's waaay down the road if I ever decide to disassemble things and reverse them. But AB said it's good for understanding how a program uses memory. But I'm thinking a quick tut on it should be enlightening--I don't want to dive into the deep end on that one quite yet. I'll definitely look into Pascal. But for now I kinda happened on Python 3x. Programmers like it; listening to AB, it's highly object-based; it's said to be easy to pick up; and I stumbled upon an interesting tutorial. So, what the hell, why not see what's what. I have the runtime and an IDE installed and am writing away. Quite fun, I say. I'm going to look into BASIC too.

    Sounds like the guy has issues. I don't understand some people. What'd you end up telling him?

    Good info, AB! Love it. I will look into (I thought it was-) assembly. I believe it's a close as we can get to machine code for people telling the computer what to do, right? Old BIOS's used to be written in it, right? Until UEFI when they switched to C# or C++? So assembly (assembler) is much more involved? I found a cool site: Code.org. I will be perusing their material, of course. What would you think would be a good app to write for Oblivion? I've toyed with modding preparation streamlining (streamlining PyFFing meshes, DDSopting textures, etc.), but everyone may not be as detailed about modding their games. Thanks for your help.

    Lol

    True. I know nothing about Rust or writing heaps for videogames, so it could be more trouble than it's worth. I do use OSR, and have good results, but I'm running without heap replacement at the moment to see what gameplay feels like. I'm pleasantly surprised so far. I have MoreHeap, but have never really tested it out. I read somewhere it replaces the Windows heap, not Oblivion's. I don't know the relationship between the Windows heap and Oblivion's (if someone does, I'd love to read that reply), but I will give it a go once I'm done testing a heap replacement-free trial.

    Sooo... if someone here already has the C++ Build Tools (which many of you do, I'm sure, you programmers) you could download the Rust tool and compile that source for me? Plus, plus, if you have Oblivion installed and regularly play it, you can test out the app. It's a heap replacer (I believe); Oblivion needs help in the heap area when running hi res textures and lots of big mods. I mean I'd really be doing you all a favor here...

    Where/what was your former site? It crashed like blue ice falling out of an airplane lavatory?
  11. Games on Sale

    That's just like back in October. There may be some games I missed back then...
  12. Fun Facts about Me

    @Amadaun is sensitive to caffeine, it sounds like. My dad is extremely sensitive to caffeine--if he drinks more than 1 cup of coffee in the morning he can't sleep that night.
  13. Programming Languages

    Good link, AB. Quickly found what I needed. Unfortunately, Rust requires the dag blasted C++ Build Tools to install. Seems like a lot just to compile 1 little program. I'm picky about what goes on my drives.
  14. Fun Facts about Me

    I use that flavored creamer, which has sugar in it. Milk for tea? Odd. I like agave for sweetener in my tea. Ice tea though. I'm American.
  15. Happy Birthday Cray!

    Youth is overrated.
  16. Programming Languages

    Damn! I may have to talk to Google then. Sure hope there's not a lot of crap to download in order to compile.
  17. Happy Birthday Cray!

    Good tidings to you, Cray. Enjoy your day.
  18. Random Stuffz

    Haha, nice Lucky Charms reference.
  19. Fun Facts about Me

    Me too. I love a raw potato! Red potatoes are my favorite, but I'll eat any kind. Sprinkle a little salt on them--mmmmm.
  20. Programming Languages

    We should start a thread on modders. I think it's neat to read a little background behind the people who create my favorite mods. Hey, is anyone familiar with Rust?? There's this and I'd like to give it a whirl, but don't know shit about Rust. I'd buy someone a beer if they compile that for me
  21. Random Stuffz

    Spaceballs is great!
  22. Random Stuffz

    Lol. I'll have to check them out. Everybody loves the healing power of laughter.

    Sounds like I blindly started out right by choosing AutoHotkey to break into the world (well Oblivion scripting was my first taste)--though there's debate if it's a true language or just a scripting language. I don't know what Object Oriented programming is, to be honest. Google could tell me for all that I will post, but I'd rather hear it from you all. Anyone have experience with AutoHotkey? I may stick with it until I'm as comfortable with it as I am with Oblivion scripting. I read that Python was easy, but you guys disagree. Why? Maybe a good next step will be CSS or HTML? AB, what other project ideas do you have. I've just been screwing with Oblivion utilities; a front end to robocopy; appending certain things I use to the Oblivion.ini, etc. Simple stuff, though I've found that things always take more time than you plan for. Especially getting familiar with the damn Windows API. By the way AB, what utility are you planning on writing for Oblivion? I loooove new, shiny Oblivion stuff. One thing I've become more familiar with is the command line and batch scripts. Surprisingly, I can get things done with batch script.

    Cool. I'm not familiar with them, but may as well check it out.

    I never say the comedy version. Wasn't it a Bond spoof? Cannonball Run was, too? Have you seen Space Balls? Star Wars spoof.
