    ABW suggestion
    For a small yearly fee could we get more storage for our PMs? I have to go find stuff to delete all the time I and many times, I would rather not delete them.

    I am sure others face this, too. As time passes, it just, naturally, becomes more crowded in there.

    Just a thought. Might be another source of funding for ABW.

    Damn, you must have a lot. I just have a few hundred and they're all there. Don't think there is much of a market of that. Maybe a few people at most? Don't know.

    Yeah, given that I am so popular and all.

    Every time I get one, I have to go find something to delete. I thought, probably, everyone had the same problem.

    Maybe, not.

    Of course, I am the kind that just doesn't like to throw stuff out because.... well, you never know when you will need it.

    What is the limit? How many can you have before you have to start deleting?

    Dang, I just checked, still have some from 2002.

    500

    The longer ABW exists, the more likely it will be a problem for almost everyone, someday.

    There's an option to download them all.

    I hit the limit about six months ago. At first, I started going through and deleting some, but then I found the option to download them. I downloaded everything to a text file, saved it on my hard drive, deleted them all, and started over.

    At the bottom of the PM page:

    Pack rats.

    I have zero. We AR folks delete and archive where needed, to keep things neat and organized. Then we go catch some jaywalkers afterwards.

    I just archive everything. It's faster, and you never know what you'll need. Time is money.

    Thank you!

    Dang....Where is this option?

    OK! It is way at the bottom of the page.

    Exactly!

    I always delete my PM's after a couple of days.

    Just think about it for a minute... or two...




    happens, and what would you do if you get fired or quit ABW?
    How can you get to all of those old PM's if you no longer have access to them?

    Anyway, those things are supposed to be Private Messages to you, and according to the way things are, there are no Private once it's posted somewhere on the net.

    Are you sure that you want to have a permanent record on the wayback machine about your last 5000 PM's?

    Thank you Haiko!!

    My private just ain't all that private, just of no real interest to the entire board.

    Guess, I am just not that good at gossip.

    There is some helpful tutorial type stuff that I want to keep. And, I am, now, sure as heck glad I didn't delete it because it looks like I am going to need it.
