Another mystery object. - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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.

  • Another mystery object.

    Another mystery object for the brains trust.

    We have had this "thing' for some time and are still baffled as to its use, it has a sharp pointy end and works as scissors do only in reverse.
    The handles have Ebony grips that form as one when opened.

    Maybe it was inserted then opened to cut as it was withdrawn?

    There is a makers mark on it, Arnold and sons, London.

    My first guess was some type of surgical device, very brutal and midieval looking.

    A quick search on Google lists Arnold & Sons London as being the makers of medical devices, including some with ebony handles, was unable to find this item...also found Arnold & Sons London as picture framers and clockmakers. Seems the name was/is pretty popular in London and they all had sons they went into business with.

    I'm sticking with a surgical device, looks like something they used on William Wallace in Braveheart. OUCH!

      Strange, we've had the item for years and yet shortly after posting I did my first Google for it.

      The results for a similar item left me feeling cold.
