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.

    Re: Sea Salt

    Great idea,
    do you just get a container of sea water when down at the beach and place it in a large flat tray when the oven is too cool to bake?
    If so, it makes the most of the residual heat.

      Re: Sea Salt

      Amazing that much salt from 5 gallons of sea water. Very nice. I have the Great Salt Lake here is Utah but I do not think I would trust the water out there to be very pure............I guess I will continue to buy my sea salt at Costco.

        Re: Sea Salt

        Never thought of this, great idea. Near my wife's hometown in Thailand they "mine" sea salt and sell along the road. Like Annie said it's full of water when you buy a bag of it. Not sure of the price after drying it out but I expect it to work out to somewhere around 25 cents per pound. Sea salt in the store, "brand name" is fairly expensive here..

          Shhhh....if I tell my wife she will be using my oven non- stop for her salt business

          I am a probably a couple of months away from trying the salt, it will be right up there wth the first pizza.

          Thanks!

            Very Cool idea! I live near the Jersey Shore and I'll bet I can get a lot more than just sea-salt out of that water.....

              Re: Sea Salt

              We here in Adelaide, South Australia have been forced to accept a very expensive "desalination plant" at around Aus$1,800,000,000.00, yes $1.8billion dollars!!
              It is "insurance for those drought years when we will need the very expensive water, how ere, getting back to the theme of this thread, it puts back into the gulf thousands of tons of sea salt as they extract around 70% of the water.
              Wouldn't a logical person think of removing most or all of the water to on sell the salt? A great source of a valued commodity.
              But who understands the mentality of the politicians who brazenly waste our hard earned taxes.

                Seawater, in Spencer Gulf, is about 38 grams of total dissolved salts per litre,
                That's 38 kg per kilolitre. That's 38 tonnes per Megalitre.
                To do the 200 Megalitre per day desal plant for the Olympic Dam expansion, they were looking at dealing with over 7500t of salt per day.

                That's a lot of pizzas.

                I reckon the ocean off Adelaide is about 35 g/L.
                I'm not sure how big the Adelaide desal plant is, but I do think the salt involved would sorta flood the market.

                Not to mention putting Cheetham Salt (north of Ardrossan) outa business.

                Which brings me to the question I was meaning to post in the first place. Seawater isn't just sodium chloride. It's got other stuff in it.
                At Cheetham Salt, they manage the evaporation so as to precipitate the other stuff separately.
                From memory, as you evaporate the water, the calcium precipitates first, leaving a brine with mostly the sodium chloride. This is decanted off and evaporated in another pond, leaving a precipitate of salt when the bitterns are run off.
                Do people do that when they make their own? Or do they just precvipitate the whole lot?

                  I'm going to try this, but the missus has already laid down the law and said I must drive down the coast and gather my seawater from an area far away from heavy industry, so it might be a while.

                    Yes, I agree, I don't that sea water from the Port River or the North Arm would be desirable. Taste ???? impurities ???? contaminates ???? but really, in such small quantities for a pizza, (as distinct from commercial quantities) would they really be dangerous?
                    Gee, I have had a lot of things ingested over my years and experiences that would be deemed unhealthy (e.g. working with asbestos, welding fumes, severe dirt/dust conditions, screen printing solvent/ink fumes etc.), but touch wood, at this stage seems to have unaffected me.

                      Annie,

                      Your salt is like the raw honey I get from my neighbor for letting him use a unused piece of my property for his hives. It is full of bee pollen and other "trace elements" that get nanofiltered out of the honey you buy at the local grocery store. Can I taste a difference? probably not, but I like to think I can.......as for your salt, like your oven, you can say, I made it myself!
