The image size limit has been raised to 1mb! Anything larger than that should be linked to. This is a HARD limit, please do not abuse it.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
My dad's hard drive just died. But it's ok, because I convinced him to sign up for CrashPlan cloud backup a while back!
My dad's only ISP option is Charter, so that's what he has. He used to use the included Charter email account as his primary. When he switched over to gmail, he set the Charter account to forward incoming emails to his new address.
The Charter address was the one associated with his CrashPlan account. All of the emails notifying him that it was time to renew were sent to that account.
Charter freezes email accounts if they haven't been logged into for six months.
Charter does not notify its customers of this.
Because my dad's Charter account quietly stopped forwarding emails, his CrashPlan account expired and his backups were deleted. He lost most of his photos, thousands of dollars worth of paper model PDFs, and all of his client files from at least the past decade.
