      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!

Monitors: New Graphics Drivers, older H/W

Recommended Posts

Lovely. Another reason to stick with Windows 7. It's probably something similar with ATI cards. Even with the older drivers on Win 7, my display that's connected with DPMI never goes to sleep. I have to shut it off.

Good grief! I stick with video drivers that came out a couple of releases after my card was released. At that point, the vendor is focusing on my card and I'm hoping that they've ironed out the bugs within a couple of releases after that. I won't let my video drivers update beyond that.


My monitor that's connected via DPMI is number 1, but I was able to change the layout with my video driver. When Windows boots, my primary monitor is activated, not the monitor that's connected with DPMI, so I'm happy.
