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.

Hello,

For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

  • My dog ate the Infrared

    It's true. Our 7 month old, but still incredibly immature, labrador destroyed my trusty Forno Bravo infrared thermometer. It had travelled across the Atlantic and back a couple of times and worked great, but it was no match for a dog.

    So I ordered the new FB infrared thermometer from the FB Store, and I can report that is is very cool. It is sleeker, and it has a food temperature probe built in.

    I'm still angry with the puppy, but at least I have a new toy.

    James, you know what they say - there are no bad dogs, only bad owners

    OK, so my previous dog ate the wood siding on the house, my daughter's socks, several pair of leather shoes, and a very expensive suede/knit sweater - but he WAS really bad

    One word of advice - ALPO

    Good luck training him...remember, he is your best friend, don't be too mad at him.

      Being an experienced dog owner...you have at least a year to go of "puppy"...expecially in a labrador...we are Rhodesian Ridgeback breeders...they are hounds...and even still our youngest at just over 2 years old now...has just had a game with a bag of perlite in recent days...days gone past include TV remotes, ceiling fan remote, shoes, insoles from shoes...many more I'm sure but just can't remember
      A good rule is don't let them do as a puppy what you don't want to have them do as an adult.

        James,
        you can't blame the dog, labradores don't do any wrong. (I had one for 14 years).
        We are having to make our house 'grandchildren proof' and you should know to make your place puppy proof!
        Although I sympathise, , you came out on top with your new toy but keep it out of reach.

          Great posts! My 4 month old lab ate my trailer wires for the brake lights on my boat. Then it ate the wires that control the garage door opener. Now, 6 years later, it just runs away when it feels the need. I got a call at 6 AM yesterday from a half-a-mile away that he was lost and needed dad. I'm not even going to speak to the drool factor.

            Ouch. That hurts. It's probably true, but it still hurt. :-)

              I'd love to have a dog, but we can't have one because my eldest daughter has asthma... so next time you're mad at your dog just remember that.

              I could tell you about a couple of theing the twins trashed though. Still an ongoing process... Wood ash all over (and I mean ALL OVER) the freshly cleaned pation was their last effort.

                WOW...My wife and i must be lucky. We have a black lad that will be 4 in September and has never chewed a thing around the house. Although she will drag a log off the wood pile and knaw at it. But thats fine and can be quite entertaining. As far as running away. We have the entire back yard fenced in.

                  Was talking to an old workmate last tuesday, and his 4 month old Kelpy (sheep or cattle dog) chewed through the wiring loom in his Subaru Forester under the passengers seat. $1051 later for a special order from Japan for a new loom section and 8 hours to strip out the interior and fit, all is well. Apparently they will not fit secondhand due to possible litigation as it involved the seat belt lights, airbag and shifter selector illumination. It is now an insurane claim.
                  I will be making a cargo barrier for him to keep the pup out of trouble in the back as he continually chews through the leather teather straps.

                      We rescued two labs...brother and sister...after Christmas a few years ago...only had them for 2 months before we drove from here to Arizona to adopt them to friends who have a ranch out there...before they went to their new home they ate a door, chewed on our central air conditioner, aluminum siding, and who know what else...that is why we have Ridgebacks...for the most part they turn two and just completely mellow out...except for squirrels and the neighbors annoying little dog...

                        Wonderful dogs though. Labs have the disposition of a year-old baby (normally). Kids can pull at their ears and poke them in the eyes - no problem! They just love the attention.

                          James, only kidding...Your probably like most of us dog lovers. let them get away with everything short of murder. I didn't say a word when our old dog (a Samoyed) ate the siding.....knew it was my fault - working constantly (no attention, no exercise, no discipline), just gave hime free run of the back yard when I was "too busy" for him. His destruction stopped when he was regularly exercised and we spent time with him
                          Puppies on the other hand are like small children...they don't know its wrong until they've done it and have been reprimanded.
                          I do like the idea of blaming the dog to get new electronic gadgets...I never used the "dog ate my homework" excuse, so I may use it on my wife the next time I "need" a new toy.

                            My neighbor has a Ridgeback...think he is 4 or 5.....HUGE, at least 130 lbs. Looks intimidating, sound scarier than a lion's roar and is the most chilled out, giant baby I have ever seen...nothing fazes that dog.

                              I have two and a half city sized black labs. Actually they are black and tan miniature doxies. Full of personality and very people oriented. When you try to ignore them they climb up in your lap and demand attention. On the other hand, they are always excited to see me, even when I come home after working swings a o-dark hundred. That's more than I can say for my kids sometimes.
                              We did go to dog school with them and learned that most of the dogs problems were ours. Since our dogs are very stubborn our trainer gave us some of the best advice I have ever heard.

                              A tired dog is a good dog
                              An exhausted dog is a great dog.
