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.
In my opinion, I think too much is made of the BTU value of the various woods. I've fired to full temp using ironwood, hornbeam, pine, maple, oak, and willow... these pretty much span the BTU range of the charts. Well I haven't done stop-watch quality analysis, it doesn't seem that there's that big of a difference between any of them once the wood is fully cured. I would say the difference between the oak (my most common wood) and willow is about half a beer bottle ...which translates to about five minutes or so
Talking of free firewood, it always is offered when you least need it.
Close neighbours had trees cut down in the past 2 weeks and probably 20 tons of wood cut into 12" blocks up for grabs, but I don't have the room, don't need it for 2 years and couldn't pick it up due to operation last week.
I have included a picture of my larger stack along the back of the house and have another around 1/4 the size up in the vegy garden, very dry and matured olive wood collected 10 years ago for wood turning.
A mate of mine developed a raport with a tree feller who phoned him when he had some wood ready for collection and he had 2 days to collect it for free. Only trouble, he collected huge quantities which he then had to share abd season before use in his slow combustion heater, but a great source!
Now, with the price of wood, the tree fellers collect and sell it.
Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!
The more I learn, the more I realise how little I know
