      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 .

Childress Fired!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Confirmed: http://www.startribune.com/sports/vikings/109908409.html?elr=KArksLckD8EQDUoaEyqyP4O:DW3ckUiD3aPc:_Yyc:aU1yDEmP:QMDCinchO7DU

I wonder if Favre will drive Chilly to the airport?

Anyhow, good riddance--this season is lost, might as well start rebuilding now.

Now we run the table, finish 9-7 and miss the playoffs...umm yea...maybe a bit late on this one Zygi.

Love the news though. Just looking at the guy made me upset. Glad he is gone, now we cut ties with T-Jack and move forward trying to make a winning team.

Frazier's first address to the players should be simple: "anyone who wants to be on this team next year better play their butts off every down thrugh the end of the season." Jason Garett got the Cowboys' attention that very same way.

Exactly. Hope they are coming up with some good excuses now! I don't think Chili has what it takes to ever be one of the better coaches in the league, but how do you explain the performance of all these multi millionaires rolling over. Do these guys need a motivational speaker on top of their paycheck? Better bring someone in who can get in their face and make them pee down their legs....... whistle

Now there is alot of pressure on the players. We have heard for 2 yrs how Chilly is holding them back, how his game planning was bad, how his playcalling was bad, etc. Well, now we will see. The schedule is fairly easy the rest of the way and if this team is truly as talented as we are led to believe they should easily win 5 of 6.

If these guys can not get it up so to speak, we will learn who was really to blame.

The Cowgirls players have sure stepped up since Wade was fired.

About time. Glad to see him go. Any success the Vikings have had recently has been due to overwhelming talent. Never once did I feel that the Vikings won because of a well-prepared gameplan. Never once did I feel that the Vikings made needed adjustments at half-time. I really don't care if the Vikes win or lose the rest of the season. I just want to see something different. Good effort on the players part. Gameplans that throw some curveballs every now and then.

Never has so much been paid to so few for so little.

This was long overdue. they won in spite of this guy and his ego. he was too stubborn to adjust offensively after Peterson showed up, and continued to run tight formations, not allow QBs to audible(he wouldnt let Frerotte audible to a pass with 8-9 guys in the box(admitted it in a post game press conference). Fave audibled alot last year and that was a source of the tension between those two. there is absolutely zero creativity from this guy offensively. how often did they run play action on first down with AP in the backfield? should have been doing that 1/3 to 1/2 the time(watch the linebackers fly up to the line of scrimmage when they did do it) and see the middle of the field open up...then you have a quick throw for 5-6 yards(or more) and 2nd and 5 or less. opens things up. too many 3rd and long situations with his playcalling. run right on 1st. run left on 2nd. throw on 3rd. not predictable at all. d coordinators around had him figured out along time ago.

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • Thank you for the responses. I do know it’s a right of wayband not blockable...except...I seen one coming and did park in the area after work this week.  In a split second she/he turned around and went the other way. My truck would fill the approach but I only had the car that day.—this response is what I’m trying to avoid. knoppers-there was no bank there...there were little dots through the snow that was pulled back onto the driveway. Heck, he was up near the tree line. Wanderer-it’s a small rural area, I’ll be the ... The snow and ice is melting down to the tar today, they drove in it anyway. It’s 130 am and ya...time for jumping. Thanks for all the answers. I don’t feel alone in feeling it’s rude. That helps. 
    • I would think so, it would be no different than parking on the shoulder of the road. my commit was more related to people that put up barriers, to keep others from crossing there approach.
    •   Sounds plausible to me.  Is the thickened footing in your mind the same as pouring the perimeter of the slab thicker?  We did an 8 inch perimeter around the 4 inch slab.
    • Yes. But on a post framed building the only think I ever see is a thickened footing and not a foundation to the frost line. A major benefit of post framing is that you install the posts below the frost line so the need for a concrete foundation below the frost line is not needed. If I am understanding the question correctly. 
    • FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone.   May a person park their own vehicle in their own driveway approach?
    • I think they’re more looking at the footings requirement, aren’t they?  Thus the reason for getting the poles below the frost line?   Its the township’s responsibility to figure this out and you have the right to ask them to cite the code they’re following.   I used to live in Isanti County and dealt with a building inspector from my township on the construction of my detached garage.  Things weren’t very strict to say the least.     We built everything by the current UBC code, so I’d suggest first getting a copy of the current version of that since this building will actually be your home.  Don’t take unnecessary shortcuts to save a few bucks up front.  You’ll eventually regret it.   Reading your plans for the slab, it sounds pretty good.  There are plenty of slab homes out there built the way you describe.  What you don’t want is movement.     I’m not an expert by any means but I think footings on your slab wouldn’t be a bad idea and sinking your poles that deep should be a requirement.  If you don’t do footings, at least pour your slab thicker on the perimeter to hold it better.    Your local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) can be more restrictive than code, but not less.  So if it’s defined in the UBC, you have to do at least that much.
    • I’ve personally been on both sides of this.   Used to love getting as much air as possible over driveways but I never understood gunning it on the other side after crossing.  I guess some are just mild adrenaline junkies.    I quit doing that for one, because it’s illegal, and two, not safe if the homeowner happens to be leaving or getting the mail at the time.   Now that I have a posted trail going over my driveway, I find it just rude, obnoxious and irritating to deal with 4 wheelers and sleds gunning it over the gravel and making ruts and eroding my base to the point of it being an expense to either plow and pack the class 5 back in place or spend the money to pave it.  I hate having to bounce over two ruts with my trailers and whatever I’m hauling in them too.   I think that’s the worst part for me.  Either jump it or be mellow on the throttle the entire way over.   I’ve seen trail groomers go around driveways before, making me wonder if that truly is a requirement or they were simply being courteous.  But I agree with knoppers, they should not drag over the driveway.  Maybe they think they’re taking the snow off for ya.  Call the people responsible for the trail and ask them for suggestions.  
    • If you want to get through ice fast and are going to re-tool for it completely, look at a Nils before making your final decision. 
    • I am fully aware of this as are most people.
    • some people are bad apples that give the sport a bad name, I as a snowmobiler have respect for driveways. FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone. trail groomers actually do you a favor by knocking down the bank, to keep it level. unless your groomer was not well trained, they will not groom over your driveway.
