Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.


To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Beef to go with your bread?

    I saw this on anther "foodie" site and hesitate to put this in the FornoBravo's "Roasting and Grilling" because I think I'd eat this raw, at room temperature! But how about some meat to go with your bread?


    Costco - Japanese Wagyu Beef Ribeye Roast 15 lb. Average

    Re: Beef to go with your bread?

    Holy crap, I think I can only afford the butchers paper it comes wrapped it. This stuff is $153 a lb. I believe the US Wagyu is a bit cheaper...but still around $100 a lb. Until I hit the Powerball, I can only dream.
    I read the 3 reviews on Costco - one guy in Texas says he buys 5 of these roasts a year. I love beef more than anything...but $11,000 a yr on rib roasts???? Wish he were my neighbor.

      How much do you want to bet that his name rhymes with "small tree-like plant" and he uses a US Government credit card?

            It'd be cheaper to buy the cow, soybeans and saki and pay somebody to raise it for you.

            I wonder how much the brisket is?

              A similar situation was witnessed here in Adelaide just prior to Christmas when a woman asked for a large crayfish for the traditional lunch and was handed a Aus$265 crayfish. It currently sells for around $100 /Kg.The season is poor and the Japanese push the price up so we have to pay the same.
              She rejected it immediately and wanted an export quality crayfish. An 8.2kg one was produced with a $865 price tag which was fine. It was wrapped and accepted.
              It just goes to show what some people pay for their desires and we settle and are happy with the 'cheap cuts'.

                Crayfish? $800 for crayfish?! A crayfish?! As in singular crayfish?! An $800 crayfish?!

                $800 for something that I can skim off the bottom of a creek for free? $800 for a nasty little scavenger that spends its life under rotting wood in a creek?

                Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Exhibit A. in the case of universal insanity...

                  Well, if it weighed 8.2 kg, obviously it was the crayfish that ate New York. I like them as small critters, but I'm not sure I'd wanna eat one that big. I somehow don't think you'd have been able to dig that one up out of the muck in the creek, somehow... I suspect it would have eaten YOU.

                    I suspect that in OZ that term refers to what we call 'lobster', not a good ol'fashioned Southern mudbug.

                    But at that price... it really doesn't matter. That price is nuts. We are paying $10/lb for American lobster in our Los Angeles area asian markets.

                      Egalecki: okay, that big I'd probably have to search around the base of a dam. Of course, there I'd be more worried about being eaten by the giant catfish...

                      Brian: I hope you're right. That would be one huge crayfish...

                      I live inland, but I can guarantee you our price for lobster isn’t much higher

                        Has to be a form of lobster.....that sucker was 18+ lbs. A local restaurant actually serves Aussie lobster, I've had it twice and in my opinion it is much sweeter/tastier than Maine lobster. Fortunately, both times were company meetings and I didn't have to pay the bill - I think it was $44 for a 1 1/2 tail or 2 smaller tails equaling 1 1/2 lbs.

                        Neill, where can I get one of these 8 kilo critters? Might as well order a couple of them at the same time I order a $2200 rib roast.....The ultimate "serf and terf".

                          I’d go with the cheapie. I realize it’s only $6,000 a pound, but there’s nothing like fungi dug up by a pig snout to round out a meal…

                              The crayfish are deep salt water ones caught of the south east coast of South Australia from towns like Robe and Kingston.
                              They have a short season for their cray pots but get some rather large examples. It was down off the coast south of Mount Gambier on the border with Victoria (go on get out your atlases and check the locations out) that a huge deep water squid was caught which was around 12 metres long and weighed a 245Kg. It was sent to the Museum in Melbourne (the capital of the state of Victoria)
                              See: Museum Victoria: Public dissection of giant squid

                              Here is a U tube of a 15 lb crayfish:

                              YouTube - Roland's Giant Lobster!! 15Lbs HUGE!

                              Unfortunately, most of our wonderful sea food is shipped to japan where they pay a premium and so we have to as well. The Blue fin tuna are caught several hundred km off the coast and put into huge floating pens (some 100 metres in diameter and towed back to shore at Pt Lincoln where they are fattened and sold for up to $1000/kg. In fact Pt Lincoln has the highest number of multi-millionaires than anywherer else in Australia, all fishing industries.

                              we also have the Marron which is like an overgrown Yabbie (or as you call them fresh water lobsters) and also from the tropical waters, the Morton Bay Bugs. Do a Google search of these to compare to your 'crayfish'.

                              RT,
                              the best place I found to get really fresh living crayfish is down at a place called Port Turton on the Southern Yorke Peninsula straight off their cray boats. The centre section of the large wooden cray boats have hundreds of 2" holes drilled through the hull to continually flow fresh salt water through the catch and the crayfish are kept live for the premium markets. With a bit of cash, the skippers will sometimes sell you what you want at a much fairer price.
