Hello, When I go to "manage attachments" to select a photo I get a new page with only two options, upload from computer or from web. The many photos I have previouisly uploaded are not there to be selected. When I go to my home page and look at my old attachments there, the photos are still available. Can something be done to restore them to the "manage attachments" page? Thank you!

The forum is having some problems. Be patient while the admins fix everything again.

We are aware of the issue and working on fixing it.

Am I the only one that finds this aspect of modern technology a bit troubling if not alarming? Like nothing is solid, knock on (fake) wood, all virtual, poof it's here, then it's not.

I suspect that you probably are. Nothing is static. There was another thread started last night discussing problems which have since been fixed... perhaps if we were a bit more patient before posting threads like this, the founders would be able to focus on their upgrades rather than taking time to assure us that everything will be OK. Just a thought...

I find it just as troubling that nothing is ever explained. Let's just pretend it never happened and "move forward".

I mean pictures missing is one thing. Sitting in an Airbus seat, and the software has a glitch, is another matter.

There actually are at least two Airbus instances of record where the software "glitch" was fatal!

Having went thru hundreds of software upgrades in years past when I did Telephony work, I know that sometimes things do not go to plan. Things that are supposed to take minutes can take hours, things often go wrong and require starting from square 1, and misunderstanding of sequences of how things should be staged often cause more work. Nevertheless, upgrades must be done, and you just bite the bullet and go on in life. Trust me, the person doing the upgrades is just as anxious as you are for things to go well, and beating on the door to the PBX/data room does not make the work go more smoothly or hasten it in any way. All it does is distract the person doing the work at the very moment they need to focus on the task at hand.

Reminds me of my last job in I.T. at a newspaper. One guy in the newsroom got in the habit of coming to the page output management room (I.T. clean server room) and pounding on the door at deadline time if the pages were late. Well, pages were late due to computer issues, and we'd tell him that pounding on the door doesn't help the part-time kid trying to work with phone support to resolve the issue. So the guy starts calling the kid VS pounding on the door. We tell him to stop that, too. It was really getting the kid upset, to the point he was making mistakes while the guy was yelling at him.

So one night the kid is sick and I'm called in to cover operations. The back door opens and the guy come in yelling "Were's my pages?" at the top of his lungs. He comes around the corner, sees me sitting there on the phone and his eyes get big. First thing I asked him is how he got in the door, since it's an I.T. room and he doesn't have keys? He said he got the security guard to come up and open the door for him. I told him I'd let my supervisor, his supervisor, and the company owner know that he's disrupting production on a daily basis and to get the **** out of here and don't do that again, because it doesn't help the kid having un-knowledge people yelling at him over his shoulder while he's trying to think.

Talks were had, and he never bothered us again.

Anyhow, people are creatures of habit, and get used to doing things a certain way at a certain time and can get quite agitated by something that's really not that important in the big picture of things. I go for a walk, or have a cookie. Works almost every time. :)
