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 Dr,

            Which came first, the gamete or the meiosis?

            There are 90 insulating kiln bricks and half the firebricks left, about 50 of them. Also, an Indispensible tool for a 30" to 42" diameter Pompeii style oven.

            PM me with your contact info and I'll provide my phone number and directions.

            Cheers,
            Bob

              Dr,

              There was a posting on Craigslist yesterday for firebricks - 50 for $25 in Queen Creek. The poster said 4x6 but that is not a common size (and phx brick does not make them) The picture shows splits, fwiw.

                Chris,

                Thanks for the heads up! I'll check into it this afternoon; I'm headed up to the north side to see Bob today if he has time and pick up any goodies he has left.

                  Dr,

                  Yep, got everything stacked and ready for you. Between my materials and those in QC you may have enough to make a nice oven.

                  Cheers,
                  Bob

                    Bob,

                    Hey thanks for the materials and tour of your ovens yesterday! I really apperciated all the advice.

                    Our wives were talking while you stepped away and mentioned you were thinking about building a Tandoori oven; I've actually planned to build one myself next to the planned 42" pompeii. I'm sure you've seen the link already, but Musa has a pretty good build from a few years ago at: Tandoor Oven Construction Progress

                    Good luck and post up some pictures when you get started. I'll start a build thread and show you some pictures of my progress once I finish gathering materials.

                    Cheers,
                    Rob

                      DrG.

                      You are most welcome. It was nice to meet you.

                      I still have some materials to gather for the tandoor. I'm trying to locate a clay insert or a local ceramist to make one for me. Failing that, I'll get one of the big terracotta pots from HD and generally follow Musa's build.

                      Cheers,
                      Bob

                        That is too funny as I am considering making a Tandori as well! Great minds think alike

                          Hey Bob!

                          You making a tandoor? Too cool! I was thinking (dangerous activity for me, I know) about using leftover firebrick to build one once my oven is completed. What do you think of the idea of insulated 3" thick walls, built Pompeii-style without the hassle of angles and outside gaps?

                            Hi John,

                            I'd like to know more about your idea and design. I haven't started construction so am open to a wide range of possibilities and materials for mine. Maybe a new thread would attract others to comment and provide input.

                            Ideally though, the beauty of a tandoor style oven is the smooth, seamless, clay insert that allows you to cook traditional naan bread. A modified flower pot is a good substitute for a clay insert because the surface is smooth and seamless too.

                            I have a contact in India where tandoor ovens are common. I'll ask for his thoughts on building one for home use.

                            Cheers,
                            Bob

                              Is the indispensable tool still available?
                              If its for 42" I'll gladly pay for shipping to Boston
