LOL a signature Del statement. :)

It's a 15 minute lock and it's built in to to keep folks from hacking your sign-in.

People run dictionary attacks on HSO logins?

Oh well, 15 minutes isn't bad.  At least we don't have to call someone to get it unlocked like some sites.

Oh, and you said "we will eventually see it and unlock you", which sounded like a manual process :)

I don't know Del, it's how the forums are set. We don't have an option right now on it.

It is what it is.

I just thought it was typical you with the draconian response you gave. :D

OK, call me confused???  There are two sites, it appears they both hold the same information, appears redundant.   What am I missing??

 

Thanks

There are two sites.  Some forums are on one and some on the other.  Some appear in the forum list on both sites.  A few are only on the list on one site. 

I am guessing this is in preparation for an expansion, so there could be a hso/Fishing Wisconsin site, for example, in addition to what is now available

Did we lose the Sports forums? I cannot seem to find them.

​No, fixed now.

​Each forum holds different information. Neither is the same. They do link to each other through forum redirects.

If you click on one of the Forums in the Minnesota Fishing Reports - Hunting category it will take you from the HSO site  to the FM forum you selected. They are easy to spot as they have no post count and they will tell you how many clicks on that link.

We will be implementing single sign-on possibly tomorrow. You sign-up or sign in to one forum and you have access to the other without the need to sign on or sign-up again.

There are nicer things coming and will wait until we have these forums stabilized. I suggest posting in here and giving out "Like this" to others now if you want to be in a VIP forum where it's limited and the best at sharing info can see and share detailed info.

Hey Rick, is there something I may need to do to be able to see newly posted pictures/photos?  I can see pics posted before the change but nothing that was posted today.  I am sure it is something on my end but not sure where to start.

Not that it matters really, but why did my post count fall by 200+?

Thanks

All I see is your text.  No symbol or other indication of a pic even being present. 

I posted pic in the bass forum this morning, and I could see the pics in the reply box as I was writing, when I submitted it and returned to forum all I could see was my text.  I believe it was Bartman that replied he could see pics fine.  I also can not see any pics Scoot posted of his sons turkey in the turkey forum.  However, all pics prior to Saturday I can see just fine.

That's weird, I see them fine. I don't know what to say. Maybe it's your cache settings?

It is just my mobile it seems.  Just logged on on my wife's laptop and and can see pics fine.  Now just to find what to mess with on the phone.  Any ideas for a Samsung galaxy 3?

I always start simple and that would mean a complete reboot or power cycle.  I had problems importing photos to the site (the old site) but when I would reboot my phone the problem would clear up and I'd be good to go for a while.  Worth a shot.

So how do we now go about posting pictures? The old way was so easy with the little icon at the top? And what about emoticons, all I see or get is a smile face in the above bar? I want this new system to work but I am not always a smile face guy! :-(

Leech,  posting pics is real easy!

Just click on the paperclip at bottom left of the reply box. 

Choose your file.

Choose your pic.

Pics will show in text box.

Then submit reply.

As far as other emoticons I can't help.

Why do they have that you click on the dot to get the first read?  Why would you not make the topic clicked on to bring you to the first thread?  Doesnt make much sense to me or any other forum that I am part of.  Ooops clicked the topic (which it use to always be) now i have no clue where in the thread I was.

    •   No expert here either but I've talked to a couple.    Would your new, expanded slab be conducive to making the addition another zone or zones?  You could maybe run that expansion off different lines from the manifold above the slab so you don't have to route and pour over seams.   Definitely insulate below with GOOD insulation.  As mentioned, heat doesn't really rise the way we think it does; it moves to the cold and the earth will soak it up.   Heating your loop would be cheapest with a natural gas fired boiler, propane second.  Geothermal is expensive to put in so your payback on a new system is long.  Air source heat pumps are great until it gets really cold.  In the end, radiant in floor is the most efficient way to heat, but yes, it's slow to respond.  But if your toes are warm, you will be too.
    • I appreciate the response, I take nothing personally and didn't mean to be snippy in my reply. There are a lot of great comments on here and I will keep you posted on what I decide. Thanks again. 
    • Ice is quickly thinning on those northern lakes that still have ice with dangerous conditions on most lakes. The Wisconsin River is now open even in its northern stretches, but ice chucks can be seen melting along the river's edge. The lower Wisconsin River has finally dropped to near normal levels. Some walleye and brown trout are being caught on the Menominee River both trolling and angling from shore. Low water and cool water temperatures slowed the walleye run so far on the Oconto River. Anglers along the Wolf River have been starting to catch walleyes. A few sturgeon have been seen along the Wolf River, but warmer temperatures are needed for the sturgeon to start their annual spring spawning run. Walleye and sauger action on the Wisconsin River and Lake Wisconsin is slowly picking up.The steelhead season opened on the lower stretch of the Brule River last weekend and anglers reported good successPhoto Credit: DNRSpring steelhead fishing opened last Saturday for the lower stretch of the Brule River and there were lots of fishermen and fisherwomen on the river many who had a successful opener. .
    • I apologize if that came out wrong. The idea might very well be the best route to go. It's just that over the past 25 years or so I have seen many attempts to save a dollar that cost a buck and a half to do lol.    Here are my two cents. If you have a slab and you want to pour on top of it while keeping the same footprint that sounds pretty doable and could probably save some money if you don't have to change drain lines, run water, heat runs, electrical etc into the slab.   If you intend to tie into the existing slab and run zones of pex across the joint and have the new and old floors end up at the same elevation it still can be done. Some contractors will not want to mess with tying into and raising the elevation of the slabs and will prefer to start from scratch especially if you as the homeowner want them to warranty the finished product.  The critical thing would be to use enough rebar drilled into the old slab and have enough compaction and sufficient footings to make sure the slabs stay where they are without settling. That would make all kinds of problems with the pex.    Hopefully that response came across better.
    • It'll be interesting to see if the team plays a little harder in front of a different goalie. 
    • Hawg, I'm with you on this one !
    • Check and see if you have a video output on you device. You may be able to record to a digital device.
    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
