      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!

Win95 anyone?

Recommended Posts

Makes me want to dig up my Windows 95 Plus disc. I have fond memories of playing Ski Free and that hovercraft game. :D

 

That was a nice OS, even if the blue error screen was extremely common (it'd pop up if you simply unplugged the printer!). At least you could just press a button to resume!

We've got DOS too - we need it for Win 3.1! I don't remember which version it is.

IIRC it should be DOS 6.2.  Yes, you needed a separate DOS installation for every Windows version before WIn95 came out.

 

 

This is fun.  You see we in Sweden laughed after someone switch some words in the Windows message when shuting down your computer in Win95.  The error message was something like this.

 

"Nu kan du stänga av datorn" (roughly translated - "Now can you shut down your computer")

 

When some words were replaced or worded differently the message now said.

 

"Nu kan du slänga datorn i väggen" (roughly translated - "Now can you throw your computer into the wall")

I'm sure many people did exactly that. :lol:

*gets out cane* I still have a floppy with DOS 6.2 on it :P

 

I'm pretty sure I do as well. I know I still have my old 95 CD around here somewhere.

Yep. Windows used to be just a GUI for DOS before 95 came out and integrated DOS into it. I think 95 was the first 32-bit OS MS released, but I'm not 100% positive.

There are days I still want to do that...

Now, if my memory serves me, Win95 had DOS 7.0 running in the background and I'm 99% sure that Win95 was the first 32-bit OS MS that Microsoft released.

 

You still want to do that?  Me too. :D
