      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 .

Tablet Recomendation

Recommended Posts

Looking for a 7" tablet with Hdmi to stream video to a 42"LED TV. I would like a 7" #1 for cost and #2 for portability.I noticed the Asus 7" tablets do not have a hdmi port is this common on 7"tablets? Kinda looking for Android OS and built in GPS that doesn't need WIFI or Cell service to work. Am I dreaming or is there such an animal?

Thanks Guys.

Where the video coming from? If from netflix or amazon or hulu, get a roku instead.

You can buy an adapter cable for an ipad, or reportedly some of the Android tablets have HDMI. The article I found only listed some that I had never heard of.

KIndle fire HD has a micro hdmi that will connect to a tv using a micro hdmi to hdmi cable.

The video would come from standard hulu or the internet. Does the Kindle Fire have an internet browser? From what I've heard it is tethered to Amazon.At this time I do not have Hulu Plus or Netflix. I looked into a Roku but would like to have a multi use device. Would a mini hdmi to standard hdmi cord transfer smoothly to a flat screen?

If you have kids you might want to check out a NABI Tablet, not only is it for kids but it doubles for a regular tablet for adults, it runs on the android (ice cream sandwich) operating system. It has a mini hdmi hook up and it works great with net flix hooked up to my 37 lcd. I have a 10' cable with a micro and mini hdmi on one end and the standard hdmi (to hook up to the tv) on the other end. No GPS

Sounds like you're on the right track looking for something with an HDMI port.

I'm caught in the adapter-from-hell scenario with my earlier Samsung Galaxy tab. It has a proprietary port and you need a separate/unique dongle/adapter for everything you want to connect except headphones.

I thought the docking station would convert the proprietary port into the standard ports but nooooo.... even with the docking station you have to use the proprietary port dongles/adapters. If I bought every one to connect everything I'd like to try, I'd have almost half as much in dongles/adapters as I do in the tablet itself.

The tablet itself is fine, just wish I'd have research the ramifications of the ports a little better at the time. That said, at the time, I think most units did have just the proprietary-type ports.

Looks like the Acer Iconia Tab A110-07g08u might be the best option. Has anyone used the Acer tablets. It sounds like I might have to give up some screen pixels to get the mini hdmi and sd card slot.

Amazon has an app store. They have a netflix app. Probably hulu+ app also. Apparently in tablet land one accesses streaming video via an app rather than a browser.

    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
    •   Didn't say you would.    
    • Lol Leech-I don’t remember saying I was going to block the driveway with logs or wire. They will begin hitting the 4x4’s beneath there that have been there to keep cars from driving on the grass. Not my deal. I was only looking for some guidance on if I’m overreacting or if there should be som me]angers employee. So, ya, like everything else, it’s a lack of manners and I’m not crazy...yet. 
    • Just had a call with the builder and the concrete guy I am working with. Neither said they would "waste" concrete on thickening the edge unless there were plans to add on to the structure at a later date. The builder said no amount of concrete on the edge will help the building stability. He says if it moves its his fault in building it. There will be no weight on the outside edge of the building, worst thing that could happen would be erosion outside the building.
    • Had looked into the panels and they pretty much doubled the initial cost of the structure. I could spry foam the entire wall cavity for less $ and have close to the same thing.
    • Most of the moving on restrictor plates is done by changing the air flow around the car being passed with no or very little contact.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge
