      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 .

yup! but thats what ya get for getting a compaq. (no diss respect) Now you get really find what crappy customer service you'll get with them, also. Otherwise still try to play with the display settings on switching from a external monitor to normal screen. (Should be a function key) Or, it could just be settings with the video card.

Let us know how it goes and if compaq customer service gotten better!

I'm assuming this happens every time you boot up? Does the laptop have a FN button, and then another with a sun or half moon symbol on one of the keys (being the contrast and brightness) It's possible that they are just both turned all the way up... If it is an actual problem with the screen, unless it's a newer laptop; you'd prally be better off getting a new one or just hooking it up and running it as a desktop. Screens will generally run between 150-300 or more to get replaced.

Screen went white? Sounds to me like the Screen is fried, the bummer is you loose one commponent on a laptop out of warrenty you may as well scrap the whole thing, and they are insaenly expensive to fix. Compaq has the WORST customer severice in the business. Watch out for that Sony i have heard nothing but bad things about those as well. You got a 2.4 Ghz, and that sounds pretty new, if at all possible I'd try returning it and putting that money forth on a Dell or a Gateway, both have excellent customer service which is probably the single most important thing to look for when purchasing a Laptop, not to many folks can do their own repairs.

Good Luck

Matt

Yes, Dell's are probably the best choice but they're certainly not perfect. Last week the LCD on my 2yr old Inspiron 4000 laptop started acting noisy and weird. Worked with Dell tech support (very good, by the way) and finally ended up having to order a new LCD assembly for a cost of $379. Thank god I was able to install it myself -- who knows how much the cost would have been. Thankfully everything works now.

What are you talking about? Vaios are SWEET. So small... so light... 2.4 eh? I liked them better when they were small; not one of these honking huge buggers with the 17" screen they have now so they can compete with everyone else. *sigh* the age of the "note book" is over and everyone is going back to "laptops" I allways thought the lil ones were nifty..

But yeah.. I've had numerous problems with Compaq laptops. I had a screen burn out on me once, i replaced it; and then the hinge broke and so did the cover of the battery pack. The thing was covered with duct tape when I got rid of it! Never again! Another solid laptop is Thinkpads-- they're really rugged, I got a P II 300 thinkpad off hsolist for $250. And that "dude your getting a dell" guy must die....

I forgot to mention that it was a desktop. I didn't know that people had been haveing trouble with them. It works great with all my plugins like handycam, digital camera.

Should have gone and got a GATEWAY... excellent service, even after the warranty runs out! No other company can even come close.

    • Sounds like someone's talking to much! Lol
    • I'd try those!!  don't save any for Glenn!!!
    • One of these years...
    • We live in town in the Twin Cities metro area.  We've had a female Red Breasted Grosbeak in our feeder for a couple weeks. Don't remember ever having them before. And just one? When does that ever happen with Grosbeaks? 
    • Sorry, but his 60 some RBI for someone who's hitting over .300 is exceptionally low.  Especially for the number of games he's played.
    • @MJ1657 That was good for a chuckle over breakfast.  I heard you might've had a less than flawless day yourself. 
    • Sounds good to me! Maybe blanch quick then into ice water like tomato's to get that skin off first....
    • I've never tried it but maybe a guy could peel the beets, cold smoke for a couple hours in a disposable aluminum pan. Then crank up the heat and cover with foil to cook tender. Maybe they would bleed out  without skins? Any juices could go right into the mix. I have plenty of beets to experiment with, I'm going to have to try it now. Smomed pickled beets mmmm!
    • Weather was perfect up here! cloudy, drizzly, 55 degrees. we shot quite a few ducks, geese. The first hour was solid. Lots of birds around, but then as usual it died down. I was surprised at the amount of hunters out there on this WPA considering it was a 1/2 mile hike to get to it.  Left at 9:00 when my son got cold. Will be looking at getting a game cart to haul all the gear back and forth. Maybe try it again next weekend before I get serious on bow hunting......
    • My son and I got 9. Should have had our limit. Lot of teal zipping around! Lot of mosquitos too!!
