"The World is Flat" by Thomas Freidman - 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.

  • "The World is Flat" by Thomas Freidman

    Jim has made a couple of postings recently about the reach of the Internet, FB and Mary G's Bakery -- and how he ended up teaching bread classes to student from New Zealand. Put differently, you have an American living in Italy, helping anyone who speaks English make an Italian oven, who has a friend and partner in Canada who teaches baking classes to a New Zealander whom he met through FB.com, who will install an Italian oven in her house when she returns home. What a kick.

    On that topic, I am reading "The World is Flat" by Thomas Freidman, and I think it is excellent. He describes how we have all become interconnected and what it means to business, products, jobs, the environment, our kids, etc. Our daughters will be living in a very different world than the one I grew up in.

    The tone of the book is pretty optimistic, though you have be sure that you (and your kids) find yourselves on the right side of the globalization trend. In the wine business, the new world wines are Australia, New Zealand, Chile, America, etc., and the old world wines are Italy, France and Spain. Now there is a new, new world.
