      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. Hockey, AB?  Classic Canadian.  I'm glad that Jimi is recovering well after his surgery--a little holiday magic, perhaps.

    You have whetted my appetite regarding TAL.  Share the news soon.

    Anywho, happy New Year all and best wishes for 2020.  May the 2010's rest in peace.


  2. Yeah, video cards back when Oblivion came out were not what they are today in the sense that games were not as reliant on them as they are today.  A videocard nowadays does much of the work rendering a game, whereas the CPU did more back in the days.  I think a 6800 GTX was king when Oblivion came out.


  3. Yep, he sure did.  After the community found some of the tweaks to be harmful, he posted a warning.

    Yeah, when Oblivion first came out it was demanding of hardware.  I think people wanted the magic FPS booster.  It's funny that even now, modded Oblivion will bring a beefy rig to it's knees.


  4. I followed his Oblivion guide and read the reports on it.  There was much more to it than INI tweaks.  But being you all are speaking of those, some were legit, others were not.  His memory and loading tweaks were found to be not useful or even harmful.  Much (i.e. a lot of) of the other stuff worked just fine, though.  But I don't think he was into disassembling code etc., he kind of tested by trial and error.  I don't think he had a programming background.


  5. No, not Black Viper.  Koroush Ghazi was the owner/founder.  Australian dude.  Like Schtearn.  Wrote some great tweak guides for games over the years.  Wrote some great guides for Windows and driver software as well.

    Tweakguides will be missed.  It was a site I checked every day.  Schtearn is late to the game--it's been down for two weeks or so now.

    I bid it a farewell as well.

    Yeah as soon as a script hangs, it stops all other scripts from running. Ob XP’s scripts haven’t changed in years so they aren’t the cause of the errors. I’ve investigated these before and I think it was Arthmoor that explained the issue.

    I did not know that.  Thanks for informing me.
