      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 .

Hijacking

Recommended Posts

I have a thread hijacking problem and would like to come clean.  I've know its been in my DNA but I always justified it.  Usually once we were on page 2 or getting there I felt comfortable to "maybe" throw something else in there.  Yes...my biggest problem was with those I love the most here on the cooking forum.  I'd be hard pressed to derail a hunting thread...I don't know them very well.

The nail in the coffin happened to me yesterday.  I ventured off of HSO and ended up on an ATV forum for a problem I'm having and I ended up in a bodybuilding forum because I googled HGH out of curiosity.  I read some ATV stuff and if someone started derailing they were scolded a bit to keep things on track.  HGH forum?  I'm just guessing but I think some of those fellers were a little high strung from steriods too!  Zero tollerance over there for sure.  One thread was over a year old and a guy got a stern warning for getting it off topic.  A year?  I'd have no chance.

I will try to do better here.  I do feel like it's okay if I derail my own threads I start, correct me if I'm wrong :)

I don't think you can call it a hijack problem until you start hijacking your own threads, O wait you do, do that already... Hmmm Maybe there is some kind of a step plan that we could get you into, I would advise that you go to some kind of group meeting at maybe your local pub but I would advise you go alone. I think that if you did the buddy system with Boar or Rebel or even Smurfy that somehow you would take a nice place and turn it into a rib joint, Soon as you mentioned Ribs then all the guys from the BBQ thread would be there and.... I might have said to much already. I think them guys have an alert on their phones that tells them when someone is posting something about meat !!

funny guy...Matt's first walleye, replica 28 incher guided by me.  I think he was about 6 or so.  Which would have made me around 27 since it was 11 years ago. 

We usually don't keep em that small but since it was his first walleye we did.  My goal in life it to catch the state record walleye, 50/50 chance I'd say.

I actually may have caught it when I was a kid but we didn't bring it in.  I have the photo if you all twist my arm and ask nicely.

Show the photo!!!!  Boar you should read up on snowman or snow-woman.  If you look at the pic the female snow-woman always have small noses.  Kris or anyone here, as far as I'm concerned hijacking is good.  Like the others have said, we are here to learn, exchange ideas, but most of all have fun at it.  good luck.

13-0 victory for the boys last night and tonight 815pm it's against Edina.  Good team, could be a pretty even lilt.

My atv last night had some issues, went to check the oil and oil gushed out of it.  No good, I bet almost a quart spilled out of it.  Reb told me what the problem was and I'm better at Chinese than mechanical things so I couldn't understand what he was even talking about.  He mentioned a pcv valve something or another and all I thought of was PVC pipe.

Back to the topic, here's that walleye, I've posted it it before.  Maybe some forensic photog could do some math based on my size or something.  I was probably around 9-10 years old judging by the Tough Skin jeans I was wearing.

LL is referring to my reference that he has a crankcase breather tube somewhere, kinda like a PCV valve on a CAR. LL, that means Positive Crankcase Ventilation.....:grin:  Was trying to provide assistance to the poor guy.....

WHOOPS, off topic.......

yep Reb was very nice to try to help but I'm helpless.

All I know is I unscrewed the oil cap and the oil gushed all over the place.  I had to leave so I threw some paper on it and when I got home it had mixed with some melted snow and is running out the garage.  I may squeege it tomorrow out onto the 12 inches of snow we get.

It probably is the PVC pipe like Reb said both Fetzer valves I had already cleaned pretty good.

Any bets his crankcase is full of gas, from a torn diaphragm or carb/flooding problem, pushing the oil out due to vapor expansion? How about some Boar sausage? I'll take two varieties....who's up on a bet? :P

Let me just say those are two great looking young folks ya have there, LL, be proud. Really.

    • I've been finding a few hens, but nothing like last year (which was great for me).  Here's one that was just shy of ten pounds sitting next to my daughter.
    • You may as well paddle a green kiddie pool around.  Might find one for 50 cents if you look a little. Um, yeah, I've actually seen it done. 
    • Good move!  I'm sure they are thankful! I might've made an offer if I'd seen this before but they'll probably be better used in the organization that received them. Sorry the hear your hunting days are over.
    • There is no way Koivu doesn't get more term and $$ in free agency, not a lot more but he gets more. Marleau is trending down and got more money, Hansel got 750 less and is not in the same league as Koivu. I was hoping for something like 4.5 or 5 but what he got at 2 years is very reasonable. He is a lifelong wild, our captain and a great player, we have no immediate replacement, he makes our team better for the next 3 years be it 1/2/3 center. This isn't something to get upset about, scandella trade sure, aging parise sure but that had to be done, not getting a young center sure but that can sometimes be out of our control because it takes two teams to trade. I get it people are bitter about last year but what fan base isn't bitter about this or that? 
    • I ran 10 gauge wire from my shore or generator feeder to my converter.  Way over kill for a 2000 watt generator but if you ever take it camping or run it off a 3k in the summer it's nice to be wired for the extra wattage.  10 feet of 10 gauge really isn't that much money on the whole project... nice thing about running your inverter directly from the battery and splitting a couple outlets is they are always ready to go.  Just hit the switch on the inverter and you don't have to mess with unplugging and plugging in strings of 110 outlets.  Behind my tv the bottom outlet runs of the Genny and the top runs of the inverter.  Nice thing is if I ever wanted to run the whole 110 system off the inverter I can just run a 6 inch cord with a male plug on each end out the top outlet and into the bottom and power the whole house.
    • This looks like it will work to me. I had thought of doing something similar when I was thinking of going with the inverter, seperate 12v fuse block and onboard charger. Would have wired a "hot" outlet direct from generator. Then ran a piece of romex with a male plug wired onto it and tied the 110v into that. then I could have either plugged that into the "hot" outlet along with the onboard charger, when the generator was running. Or I could have plugged it into the inverter when needing to run off battery power.
    • never been there, have to go!!!   off 10 right???   or where?? thanks!!
    • Thanks everyone for the replies. I am planning to go with the ac/dc distribution panel with built in converter and charger. Then adding an automatic transfer switch, and an inverter. I m going to bring  the exterior generator outlet directly into a gfci outlet box. Then wiring the transfer switch as follows... To the NO(normally open) terminals I will wire either a piece of 14ga romex with a male plug wired on the other end, or just get a cord of the correct size with the plug on it, which will plug into the "hot" gfci outlet being fed by the generator. I will do the same at the NC(normally closed) terminals, which can be plugged into the inverter. Then from the transfer switch output I will wire a piece of romex with a female plug, or correct size cord with same. From the main terminals on the 110v side of the distribution panel I will wire of piece of romex or cord with a male plug on it. That can then be plugged into the female plug coming out of the transfer switch. I figure wiring it that way gives me the option of bypassing the transfer switch and plugging the distribution panel directly into the "hot" gfci outlet from the generator if the transfer switch should fail. The transfer switch should feed the output from the NO terminals as long as they have power to them. If they lose power, i.e. turning the generator off, then the NO terminal close and it switches the NC terminals open and feeds the output from those, which would be the inverter in this case.   I had been told by one of the places that sells fish house materials that I couldn't wire an inverter in with one of their WFCO panels. I knew there was a way so I thank you guys for making me think about it a little more. I think this set up will give me exactly what I'm looking for. I plan on running a Honda 2000W generator, and then two 31 series AGM batteries wired in paralell. Will run the generator during the day when convenient, but also want the ability to "run and gun" more when conditions allow without needing to set up the generator every time just to power a couple small AC items.   Anyone have any experience with the automatic transfer switches? Go Power brand seems to have good reviews. Same with distribution panels. 2 I see the most are the WFCO and the Progressive Dynamics. YettiStyle, what is it that you prefer about the Progressive Dynamics panel? Better quality? Easier connections? etc...   Thanks again to everyone!
