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.

  • 5.0 Earthquake

    Wow, this one was a jolt! We have had some smaller rollers lately, but we just experienced a jolt that slammed the area. Woke me from bed, and had us looking for objects above bed areas. I am not scared of earthquakes, but this was a good one. I predicted this one earlier today to my wife. We have had increasing strengths during the week in quakes. Yesterday was 4.1 or so.

    Re: 5.0 Earthquake

    Hi Acoma,
    we rarely get earthquakes here in Adelaide even thoufg I live only a kilometer from a fault line. Our last big one was in 1956 which shook me out of bed and did cinsiderable damage.
    Your 5.0 quake is 10X stronger than a 4.0 quake so I can understand the increase in activity.
    Hope that it didn't hurt the oven.

      Didn't feel it down here Robert. I felt the 4.1 but I was in the office in Reno. Did the oven survive the hit?

          Re: 5.0 Earthquake

          These things scare me...very rare in the Midwest and I've never experienced one...thanks

          but as a geologist, you know that the west is due for another big one....not if, but when, ....maybe where

          tornadoes, hurricanes, sunami's, flash floods......part of life, but better on the sidelines


          continued good luck.....

            Basle had a big one around 1300, knocked down half the city aparently. And they say we're due for the next one sometime soon...

            Though soon in geological terms could well be another 200 years.

              I had no idea you were so close to Basel. I was there once for the clock and watch fair. The group I was exhibiting with had a dinner in France, which was at the end of a trolley line. From the map, Allschwil looks like it's about three blocks from the French border.

                It is! Walk up the hill and you're in France... 300m as the crow flies.

                Cool! When was this then? And what were you doing at the clock and watch fair?

                  Re: 5.0 Earthquake

                  I was in Basel in 1993, exhibiting with a group of independent horologists who had a booth at the fair. This was the clock I was exhibiting:



                  It was not, how shall we say, a success. I was completely unprepared: I didn't know, for example, that the only language spoken in Basel was German. I had naively assumed that Switzerland was a tri-lingual country and my little bit of French could get me by. I didn't sell anything, and I was pretty miserable and isolated. I did, however, get to see quite a bit of Basel.

                    David - you do awesome work. It amazes me that you can be so precise in the movements of time keeping and still be a brother of the brick (and lets face it, it can be pretty sloppy and still work). Pretty cool!

                    Robert, my father in law, who is in town, awoke to the earthquake last night. I didn't fell a thing. We were talking about it this morning and I ran out to check my project - no harm. I trust you didn't have to do the campfire pizza

                      The oven worked perfectly. No damage from nature. I bet we get one more good one over the next week.

                      As for the clock, that is a very nice looking piece. It looks like it will withstand time...

                        Well dmun, if you come here again let me know and you won't be so isolated. Pity it didn't turn out well, usually you can get by with English and French around here - some of English speaking people who live and work here never learn to speak German. I worked at some of the trade fairs when I was a student, and they always tried to get multilingual people working there...

                          There's been earthquake swarms off the coast of Oregon in the last week. I think the world may be ending!
