      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!

RelZ: MyReels 3.1 (Redivivus)

Recommended Posts

Thanks! :) Should be ok to go- it'll warn if the runtimes aren't present. Hope of all hopes there's nothing wrong this time around!

Okay, the latest versions of Windows 10 won't let it install by default and give a message saying it's because of an unknown publisher (had the issue installing Qalculate as well). Clicking run anyways and it installs fine without trouble. :)

One recommendation: a quit button in the program would be nice along with a help button that launches the help program. :)

Great, thanks. :) Yes, for the to-do list. There's no menu other than a right click pop-up quit from there. Does it uninstall and leave no trace as well?

As a token of gratitude for the testing efforts, here's a Fruit machine:

It's a 97.2% game, but got very lucky with 5 croupiers with two substitutes on the top line!

Extract to a subdirectory of MyReels and run. Click the symbols on the left for substitution info.

Development of the Windows 10 OS, believe it or not , has in some ways enhanced the performance of the old VB6 stuff- in doing so it has exposed certain runtime bugs that were previously glossed over or hacked around by XP & Vista. Things that were working "fine" before now suddenly refused to behave.
Here's a precis of the major fixes since 3.1, but there were many little things left undocumented on account of the fact they were so numerous. :P

Version 3.2:
Fixed Installer "Visit this Site" bug, and ensuring full install of Version 3.2 now requisite. Refactored code in the Picture Properties Screen. Introducing Ordinatio Partialis and more pay options for Quadruplet on Reels 1,2,4,5. Unsort in the Bitmap Finder Screen and 25,000+ Quotes.
Version 3.2.1:
Fixed Windows 10 Shortcuts not appearing in Start Menu. Fixed Browser Folder not expanding in the Configure New Pictures Screen, also clearing an issue there of messed up Pictures on a new Profile Configuration.

 

Anyone wanting to give the installer and updater a go might also consider a test uninstall, checking that all installed directories and files and shortcuts were correctly removed. Thanks. :)
