      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 .

Another Major Toyota Recal

All 1993 Toyota Camry models being recalled

Toyota Recalls 1993 Camry Due To Fact That Owners Really Should Have Bought Something New By Now. TOKYO—Saying it was simply time for drivers to move on, Toyota Motor Corp. issued a recall of its entire 1993 Camry model line Wednesday due to the fact that its owners really should have bought something new by now. “We understand that the 1993 Camry was tremendously dependable, but, honestly, there’s just no excuse for driving a 22-year-old car at this point,” said Toyota spokesman Haruki Kinopilea, adding that, with all the advances in automotive technology that have taken place, no one really had any business driving a vehicle for more than two decades. “We’re not saying you have to buy a new 2015 Camry or splurge on a flashy new hybrid, or even that your new car has to be a Toyota at all. But the bottom line is that you need to start fresh, however you choose to do so.” While Toyota is reportedly confining its recall to the 1993 Camry, it also issued a warning to owners of 1994 to 1998 models alerting them to the fact that they were really starting to push it.

Clever marketing, if in fact it is a real piece.  Actually, I beat around in a 28 year old M-Benz and would not give a fig for something newer. But then,  you might want to divest yourself of that old Toyota because if you need a PART for it be prepared to mortgage your house to afford it.

They DO make nice little cars though. And they obviously have some creative people handling their marketing.

By golly Rundrave, I have not heard of the Onion.......only in a vague sorta way. And you are right,  I did not pay that much attention-I was blinded by the sheer brilliance of the ad campaign. I stick with my original assessment of Toyota's: nice cars but they will kill you with parts and maintenance. My wife drives a Solara convertible and now has about 100K on the clock.  Great little car, very impressive-and she has been driving SL' Benzes most of her adult life but she really likes this little  car.  But oh Lord when you need a part or servcie>>!!  Ha Ha H

Dotch:   I chased a 1949 Studebaker for several miles before I realized He was chasing me. I thought we might end up in a head on collision but then neither one of us could figure out what was the front of the other one?

    • great pictures fellas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • You don't have to like him but not many coaches in the history of the NFL did more than Dennis Green did. I would say he was a "good" coach.
    • I finally got out to try my first gen helix 5 this weekend.  Fished in 8 feet of water next to a lx5 and Lx7 in an otter lodge.  The flasher screen was not the best.  It was slow to react to my jig movement and i tried a few things to speed it up to no avail.  I switched it over to the graph and it was much better.  I am somewhat used to the graph as i use both on the LX7.  I didn't have any trouble with interference but i was only using the 200hz on the Helix.  It was definitely not in the same class as the Marcum considering the Marcum is a dedicated ice unit but as a dual use unit for the summer and winter it has lived up to my expectations.  I believe the new units will be much better in this regard.  Battery life was pretty good as i fished for about 15 hours on Saturday and i would say i had about 60% battery left.  Overall i am happy with the performance on the first outing.  I will chime back in when i get into some deeper water to compare the interference.    
    • what the heck did i just watch???  lol
    • Although it's tough to compete with diving giraffes, here is one of my all time favorites! 
    • I did sir. I was just agreeing with you. I listed both if mine and the trailer this fall but wanted to fix a few minor things on them before I let them go. I listed them and had a ton if interest while they were at the shop but it took forever to get them back and decided not to sell at that time because I was too busy to look for the upgrade I wanted to do. I think I will just keep them forever now.
    • Actually he can return for the playoffs. It's only the regular season that he can't play in.
    • I ended up selling ours last year, they just sat on the trailer with the limited snow. Got a Honda ATV, I'm burning gas again.
    • If the teams success is riding on Case’s shoulders and they wind up being the first team in NFL history to play at their home field - and they win: There will be a movie made. We may just be watching the trailers now. I’m not a big football fan to begin with but the last year (or two) has been a pretty darn good story. My wife and I were talking today about how we haven’t really had a good coach since Bud Grant.  I looked up the coach history for the team and will stand by that.  At least for as much as I know about football.
