      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!

About a hour or two I went down town just to buy another Steam card, so I took the opportunity to check my self what a decent VR headset would cost and after a few minutes it became clear to me that I can forget it for at least 5-10 years from now

That was precisely the advice I was going to give. Wait until either the price for a brand new good/top range headset has dropped to about one fifth what it is now, or (more likely) VR has been abandoned again like it was the first time.

Unless you have cash to throw around, I’d say wait too. I’m not sure if it will be abandoned this time though. They are finding uses for it in industry and medicine. One example I saw on America’s Got Talent (of all places!) was to help people get over phobias. They used it on Howie Mandel since one of his many phobias is fear of heights.

You know, I often give a similiar advice to people I know in RL.

But do you know what the funny thing is, I mean when I visit a computer store I talked to a guy and after a while I told him that basically all hardware are sold in US-dollars and when the Swedish currency is low today it will cost more to buy hardware.

The guy even tried to questioned me about the importance in paying a different currency than US-dollars, but I stood up for my argument and shortly after I left the shop.  Clearly he doesn't had a clue what I was talking about.
