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.

    Well I am hoping to get to the planning stages of my oven. Due to the amount of time we plan on living in our current house and the limited space along with my work schedule, I plan on building the dome out of refractory cement. This is something i can cast in the winter months when I am not working. Now i have called around to quite a few places only to get 2 quotes on material. I am in no way an expert so i was hoping someone could tell me if either of these are what i am looking for. He said the price is quite negotiable depending on the amount i need.

    this is the correct product, but try some alternative suppliers. The cement is calcium aluminate, the product you show is a mixture of cement and aggregate premixed so you just need water.Don't cut it by adding any other aggregate or it won't be strong enough.Most cartable refractories also include some very fine natural fibres which burn away during firing leaving tiny "pipes" which water vapor can escape from.

      The stuff is not cheap at $105/ 25 Kg I 'd be using the cheaper one. You won't be firing anywhere near 1427 C anyway.
