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.

  • How Insulation is Made

    The Science Channel is currently running a (How It's Made) segment on how Stone Wool Insulation is manufactured from basalt. The short video here only shows the first portion of the piece, but it's pretty interesting.

    You can find the next time the episode airs by checking the How It's Made Schedule on their website.

    That was interesting. There have been a couple threads recently about this stone wool and the various names it goes under. I knew it as rock wool and saw it as loose insulation placed in cavities to insulate houses. I'd like to use it in place of vermiculite (placed outside the ceramic layer over the dome) if I could find a local source.

    I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.

      At one time "rock wool" was one of the terms used for asbestos insulation.

        I'm SO glad you could mention that

        It seems like names for insulators have been regional and unstandardized.
