      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 .

Hamlin the hack

Recommended Posts

Hamlin was not so nice today taking out 2 top ten cars. He crached out Ruetiemen (spelling) and Amborse.

Cost me probably 60 points and also hurt ones chances at a top 12.

Ya, when you punt 2 of the top ten cars, its easier to finish a bit higher.

Paybacks are h&ll and if its in the chase, it could be costly when you may have taken the chance of getting in the chase away from a driver.

HACK.

HACK.

Must be the Gibbs' M.O.

I possibly could have had four drivers finish in the top ten if it weren't for the #11 wrecking the field to get to the front, but instead Ambrose finished 34th. They parked Gordon and Stremme for rough driving and maybe the #11 should have been parked too.

All I know is that I'm rooting hard for Biffle and Kenseth to keep that 11th and 12th spot in the chase!

Tapping is one thing, driving through the guy in front of you is another. I have no problems with a guy giving a slow car the "chrome horn" if they're holding up the show, but they just plain got ran over by an impatient, whiny driver.

I see David Ragan was up to his old tricks again, and eventually piledrived Bobby Labonte right into the fence.

Hamlin was very impatient. No need to wreck a couple other drivers good days.

Yes, he should have been parke but NASCAR does not play by the same rules even in the same race.

Wouldn't that be something!!!!! smile

As far as your Fantasy racing woes guys... Good to see the win for Grammma! sorry about the fantasy results for you two. I'm guessing if/when Dale Sr did what the 11 did the tune in here would be to another melody!

Still does no excuse Hamlin. One should not drag Sr into this to try and make excuse for Hamlin.

He should have been parked like Gordon and Stremme. Stremme hit was not near as bad as Denny's.

I would guess that Hamlin may get his dues paid back to him in the final 12 when it will hurt the most.

Paybacks are h$ll.

    • I can recall,   farther back than you think, of running into one now and then and finding one inn a trap from time to time. And this was MORE than fifty years ago,  so they've been around a while. Maybe just an uptick in the population in southern MN.
    • For any of you that have ever had a desire to do any sledding in the Black Hills... This is definitely the year to do it. This is by far the most snow that I have seen out there. On most years, you can get lucky to ride either the Northern or Southern hills... This year both are awesome and the meadows are full! I am hoping to get out there once more before the end of the month.
    • Yeah, but somewhere in Iowa there is an imaginary line where the ratio of road kill flips from possums towards coons.   Their fur is pretty thin.   Had one under the deck a few winters ago that would literally shiver as he scavenged bird seed.  Missing a handful of toes, some bits of ear, and the end of his tail was black from frostbite.   About 20 years ago, I plowed my first armadillo in southern Missouri with the car.   Now it's about 50/50 on roadkill whether its a possum or a dillo.   They made their way up from Texas I guess.
    •   They have been hanging in there for the last couple decades in tropical Rochester area.   
    •   Too many variables. Impact strength, airflow setting and wear factors, air pressure variance,  lubrication habits, and of course the operator. It's very easy to exceed what the stick is rated for. Not break the lugs next time tight, but maybe a free brake pulsation 2-3 months down the road after the rotor is distorted and runout turns into thickness variation.  I always use a size smaller with the impact turned all the way down and frequently have less than a 1/8 of a turn left to go. I will even tailor how heavy I pull the trigger and ALWAYS follow up with a torque wrench.     Left hand lugs was an old Mopar trick. Knowing about them does date you!                   
    • Had a 69 Dodge Charger that had left and right hand lug nuts. Was pretty much a Dodge/Chrysler thing
    • Broom and shovel then Shop Vac in the spring if it's real heavy. Or leaf blower to spread out on the yard to break down if lighter. The cardinals are preferring the white millet on the ground right now 3 to 1 where I live. The other feed I am using is sunflower and safflower. 
    • I did that with some stale Christmas almonds, Blue jays found them and took all off them and deposited in the crotches of nearby tree branches. The nuts weren't out long, then they were gone.
    •   You could use your breaker bar now and re-torque while you are at home. 
    • We launched at Normana  and started on the NSST ,,, That wasnt groomed yet so turned around and hit the RR trail to Fish lake ,,, Met the groomer heading east ,,, Gave him some time to do more grooming and had nice smooth ribbon like trail for the trip back    NSST was groomed when we got back to the trailer
