      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 .

MS Office 2013

Recommended Posts

The wife just sent me an email from her work that is offering a Pro version for 10$.

The email states that it hasn't been offered to the public yet but her company has an agreement with microsoft etc.

We just got a copy of 2010 last year for the reduced price.

Anybody have any inside information about the 2013 package? Any changes or enhancements?

Compatibility issues?

I am getting along with 2010 just fine, but if 2013 is not as big of resource hog that wouldn't be that bad.

Just looking for anyone that my know something about it to chime in.

Haven't seen it but we also have HUP with Microsoft at that pricing so I may check the HSOforum this afternoon.

I'm still on 2007 at home even though I have the 2010 version yet unused from the last time I bought under the program.

If that is a full version and not just an upgrade that is a pretty good deal. I have still not used anything past 2007 in anything other than just a quick look, but I am guessing it shouldn't be bad.

Confirmed full version Office Professional Plus 2013 is on our site too. $9.95 for download, +$13.99 more for the DVD in addition to the download.

Dunno the details beyond working for a relatively large company that apparently buys enough Microsoft stuff to swing a deal for employee home use.

When I'm no longer an employee of the company I'm supposed to uninstall the software under the terms of the home use program. So, it's not really like I'm buying it...it's sort of like a long term, very low interest loan. smile

I do have the CDs/DVDs and fully valid license keys. I do not have to register it in any way other than the normal activation stuff. My older copies of 2003 and 2007 still work on older computers I have including some license transfers from one computer to another.

Did a little reading on it yesterday and seems to be OK.

They did say there was a small issue with installing it on a W7 machine because it downloads in an image and then has to be copied to a DVD or something.

That was the only bad thing they had to say.

Sounds like it is designed or at least leaning toward the W8 architecture for the touch screen interaction.

I suppose I've spent $10 in a lot worse ways...cant hurt to buy it and hold on to it for a while...

Not sure what 2013 downloads as in terms of file.

The Office 2010 download is/was a 1GB .exe file. Since I haven't used it yet, I don't know what the .exe does - if it's an installer of sorts or just extracts an ISO image that you'd have to burn to a DVD or whatever.

The 2010 did down load most of the program from what I could tell as it seemed to install from the PC after downloading the main exe file.

I just read the part about the image thing online from one of the top returns from google. It did say that you can order a DVD for an additional $15 some where...cant remember if it was in the email or on a HSOforum that i saw. The DVD should be the whole installer.

Well I got around to having the wife purchase a copy of this.

It is not like the 2010 version where when you down load it, you get the entire version on your hard drive. With the 2013, you download a small installer file and then the rest gets downloaded from the Microsoft site. I forgot to tell the wife to order the DVD version for an extra $15. Going to see if she can go back and order the DVD yet.

the 2013 version seems to cut a lot of the fluff and color out of the program to make it a little faster. It is basically a text looking program with a lot of the same stuff as 2010.

    • Thanks. I decided to go with my gut, and ordered medium light action 8'6" Depthmaster rods. Spent some time trolling with them the other day, and I think they'll be fine. Just gotta remember to be careful with the larger fish around the boat when netting. Now if I could just better understand seasonal locations/presentations for my local walleye, I'd be all set! Trolled for 4.5 hrs without so much as a nibble yesterday. Trolled various cranks and harnesses the entire time, at different depths/speeds (1.0-1.5 mph with harnesses, and 1.8 -2.4 with cranks), hoping to make contact with one. I did find the Precission Trolling app to be pretty darn accurate with my dive curves though. So that was refreshing ... :-)
    • Nice bird! After my uneventful day Sat I gave Sunday a break Going out Monday morning to see If I can tag one.
    • Just me, or is 7:15 odd for birds to fly up to roost? 2 just flew up 75 yds out.
    • Congrats Donbo. Great looking bird.  
    • Way to go Ryan, and Dad. Can't wait to see the pics. Congrats
    • Well good weekend in the woods! Never got a bird in range! Will be back out! Nice Donbo!!!
    • Good job Wally, always love to see your early season successes.  Nice bird AS!  Long season ahead with no tag in the pocket huh?
    • Good job guys! Great start to the season.
    • Totally agree with you featherslayer. I have a bud who will be down May 2. Just as much fun calling for him and figuring strategy as shooting one myself. More fun actually.
    • Very disappointing season so far. Getting swept by Tampa Bay is unacceptable! No reason to believe we won’t get swept by the Yankees either. 4 game series against the twins could be exactly what Giancarlo Stanton needs to break out of his slump.
