      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!

Anyone travelling to London soon? Be concerned. Be very concerned...

A timely reminder of the senseless human suffering inflicted by a succession of uncaring UK governments since the 1980s; a weeping sore marring the green and pleasant face of Britain.

:D [Actually, just been. The Waterloo train did not grind to a halt because of either: 1. a leaf on the line; 2. The wrong kind of snow - so I got off very lightly...]

It seems like they are commercial- but not in a big way. They probably wouldn't mind their name on stuff- for link ons- very much like the pic in this Ubuntu comic viewer:

But then again. :P

That's great! It came up with other sites in google that wanted 9 bucks a month to embed along with 500 other sites. Must be for commercial sites then. Whatever they are :P

Super! VM, could you upload that image to our admin area and post the link in the description as well? That way I’ll be able to find them when I get a chance to put the page together. Thanks!

Actually there are a pair of glasses to help autistic kids/people with that. I saw a feature about them on the news a few days ago. They had a teenage kid (with autism) show how they worked. He said they helped him a lot and gave him more confidence.

Can people still buy Glass? I thought they had discontinued it years ago after people threw a tantrum over the hidden camera aspect even though they're on just about every traffic light. Yes, people are idiots. :P

Granted, most schools seem to keep some on hand simply as playthings for some reason or another.
