      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!

Facebook Quizzes used for Trump Campaign

Recommended Posts

Remember all those silly quizzes that you liked to do on Facebook? I’ve never done one and now I’m glad I didn’t.

Here’s the story from one of our news networks. It was a Canadian who blew the whistle. Chris Wylie was the research director for Cambridge Analytica. If you can, watch the video on the page I linked.

I hate Facebook as it is, so I’m not surprised. I only have an account to keep in touch with family and when I want to chat with them, I usually ask for their email and talk to them that way.

Like Anti-gravity?

Sort of. One of my theories involves shrinking surrounding space but I haven't been able to come up with a theory on how to make it bend, just what needs to be bent. But everything takes time! The majority of my theories hit me while I'm sleeping so it's no surprise that they all border on madness. :P

I've read that geometry is a key component to understanding reality and that it is at the very core of the material world as well.

But VM, no theory is crazy.  Eventually the craziest stuff turns out to be proven true.

Back to the topic at hand... ;) The quizzes were those personality quizzes that were so popular in 2014. If you took the quiz, not only was your personal information turned over to Cambridge Analytica, but their software also followed links to all your friends so their information was collected as well. Mark Zuckerburg is now apologizing, but given his attitude regarding the value of peoples’ data and how everything you post becomes the property of Facebook, I find the whole thing shallow. I don’t expect anything to change.

Zuckerburg strikes me as greedy, hearing about this.  I doubt he needs the extra money he got by doing this.
