      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 .

removing pennies from PS3

Recommended Posts

My 3 year old son stuck a bunch of pennies in my PS3. Anybody know what's my best course of action? I can't open it or I'll void the warrenty, but it doesn't do any good to send it in cuz obviously foreign objects aren't covered in the warrenty.

Anyone on here know how if, once I get in, taking the disc drive apart is very complex?

You should be able to find out how to take it apart online if you google it. Don't know that you have much choice.

I found some instructions, but I was more looking for personal experience. I don't know very much about electronics, so I'm just wondering if I take it apart, should I be able to get it back together? I guess I'm just a little nervous about taking stuff apart after I couldn't get my 10/22 back together after I tore it down. smile

I have taken apart a PS2 before, not too hard. If you are talking about taking apart the actual drive, that's not a good thing. You probably won't get it to work again. I would see if you can just buy a new drive for it.

My kids put crackers in our old VCR that hasn't been used in about 3 years, so that was no big deal. About a year ago they did scratch the screen on my flatscreen LCD TV with some plastic tools. I was frustrated, but what do you do? At least you can only see the scratches with the TV off or with a totally white background. It kind of reminds me of the stuff i used to pull on my parents.

Kids and pets are very hard on things. My wife and I always say "you just can't have anything nice anymore". Is it worth it? Heck yea, so you put up with some stuff getting beat up. Small trade off for having your life enriched with children and/or pets. It is frustrating though when they damage something spendy, you just have to learn to live with it.

The night I bought our 42" LCD, my youngest wrote on the screen with an ink pen. 99% of it was ok, but there was a small scratch. Can't see it when the TV is on

Ny luck with the PS3 Fishahlik?

I started digging into it a couple of nights ago at my buddy's place, but didn't get close to done. I'll let you know when I finish up. It's sitting on his ping-pong table right now.

    •  Indeed I am pretty confident I will get one this weekend I am able to hunt fri to monday morning  
    • Yes the trout was biting also, we both brought home 5      
    • After hunting Archery only for the last 10 years their is nothing I would change. It is darn frustrating but that is what makes it so fun. 
    • Hope your trout fishing was as good as your turkey hunting. Beautiful morning, beautiful bird. Congrats.
    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
