      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Favorite cooking shows

Recommended Posts

Anyone got any favorites? Or even watch them at all?

America's Test Kitchen & Barbecue University w/Steve Raichlen on PBS are good. Also like to watch re-runs of the original Iron Chef Japan on FLN & Iron Chef America among other shows on Food Network.

Probably watch "Good Eats" the most, but "Diners, Drive ins, and Dives" is good. Anytime they do BBQ competitions, I try to catch those. Although not really cooking shows, I like "Man vs Food" and Andrew Zimmern's Bizarre Foods.

The first Rachel Ray show I watched was titled "first date food" or something like that. She made her boyfriend chili dogs. I thought that was pretty awesome, plus she is easy on the eyes, somewhat grin

Hmmmm, I like Racheal Ray and Everyday Italian (not just for the cooking though :-)) Diners, Drive ins and dives is good. I used to watch a lot of Good Eats but haven't in a while.

Good Eats ofcourse Dinner Impossible And Diners, Drive Ins and Dives.

Rachale Ray's novelty wore off and now she just talks to much but she still is adorable.

Oh yea 1 more America's Test Kitchen on PBS ranks up there with Good Eats.

I watch quite a bit of Food TV, I really enjoy cooking and have a bunch of restaurant experience...

Iron Chef America is one of my favorites. I would love to have competed against some of the yahoo's I worked with in kitchens, lol

Good Eats is full of information. Alton can be a bit anoying at times but I like the show. Lots of stuff on there about the chemestry and why of cooking

Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives is a great show. It actually gave me alot of ideas for specials to try at the last place I worked.

Some of the "reality" shows are entertaining also. Top Chef and Next Food Network Star are good. I really like Chopped - thats the one where they give 4 chefs random surprise ingredients for meal courses then eliminate one chef after each course.

Bobby Flay's shows especially the early grilling shows were great. They got me makeing my own marinades and sauces. Lots there about balancing flavors...

Alton Brown Rocks!!! He makes a lot of stuff Id be willing to eat without spices Ive never heard of..

Everytime rachel Ray says YUM-O, I want to pull out my hair

I wonder how long Gordon Ramsey would be able to put up with her.

You guys can say all you want about Giada and Sandra Lee, but while they are nice, they aren't nearly as nice as Aida on Food Network's Ask Aida. If you haven't seen her, check out their HSOforum. I think you'll agree.

    • Dish Network is a little tufter to tune in. They use a skew to get both satellites that is why they are turned a little. I go through how much direct charges me every other year.  I just ask for someone in charge and they usually lower it to a satisfactory amount. Last time they lowered it to 52 something because I have AT&T phone so they cut it in half.        
    • That looks good. Don't pay no mind Dave to that instigator!!!
    • I am pretty much ready. Not sure where you guys are hunting but up here the weather looks really good. Cloudy, 50's, NW wind 5-10 MPH. Will be taking my son on his fist duck opener. I myself have not gone for many years so am actually quite excited for it. There are a few birds around so we should get a few. Will be hiking into a WPA that is a bit of a walk so crowds will not be an issue. Good chance we will have the pond to ourselves.
    • So, you're at Emma's for lunch?
    • Good luck folks!  
    • Yep, it's looking to be a warm one. I still have a bunch to get ready but i've got all day tomorrow to scout and prep.    Good Luck!
    • Lunch.....fit for a king! Roast beef commercial with left over beef roast. Just thought I'd share. 
    • Maybe I should try something similar. I am hunting alone, but could probably get my neighbor to help. Thanks for the suggestion. Rockin Randy
    • I called Direct yesterday and they offered me a fair price but it was only for 12 months and 12 months at regular price. That was with a 2 year contract. Dish is no contract and 24 months at one price. I asked the lady at Direct if they thought it was better to loose a customer of 35 years or match the competition.. She had no reasonable reply. So,, Hello Dish Network.. And I was on the phone 20 mins.
