Alan Scott Obituary - 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.

  • Alan Scott Obituary


    Here's a link to the New York Times obituary of that ubiquitous, self described "aging hippie" and oven pioneer Alan Scott: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/06/di...tml?ref=dining . No matter what type of oven each of us has, we owe him a moment to reflect on what he spent a lifetime doing.

    Good eyes, Jim. Like most of us upon reading of the first report, I went searching. Hoping against hope it wasn't true. Damn.

    Mr. Scott made playing with your food and FIRE very, very cool.

        We owe him a great debt of gratitude for helping us to rekindle one of life's simplest pleasures.

          72 is such a young age; this is very sad. Alan did so much for our community, he loved what he did, and he brought so much happiness (and good bread) to so many. It sets me back to think about what the supermarket bread shelves looked like before the real bread movement (did we really eat that?) -- and Alan played such a big role in helping make that movement happen. I also think back to the first time I lit a fire in an oven built from Alan's plans, felt the heat and watched it work! What a thrill.

          We have a lot to thank Alan for, and I wish his family all the best.

            Thanks for posting the obit Jim - an interesting man, from the sound of it, who went too soon. A big loss for the oven community.

            Interesting how his oven work first came about quite by chance, through a request for handles for an oven his friend, cookbook author Laurel Robertson, planned to build. (Her book, 'Laurel's Kitchen', was one of my very first cookbooks years ago!) Funny how it's often the random and seemingly small things that put your life on a whole new path!

              He inspired me. Though I never knew him personally I feel a loss

                Farewell to a true inspiration. The biggest lesson learned is community and all that it is.
