      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 .

Off topic question... DVD X COPY

Question

Thought I would ask here since , well a bunch of us are computer geeks and what better group to ask...

Lost (another) DVD to scratches (kids) and am looking at buying DVD X COPY GOLD...

I can backup some older DVDS but not new ones with my current software...

Does DVD X COPY GOLD really backup all DVDS bit for bit ????

Thanks for being patient with off topic question...

Wally

Wally,

If you are talking video dvds, they use a special encryption that makes it real difficult to copy them. There is some special software called DeCSS out there that along with your dvd xcopy software will allow you to copy video dvds.

I have not spent the time to really sort all of that dump out and make it work. I did manage to decrypt it to my hard drive, but then you need an application to put it all back together in a playable format. They did a pretty good job making it hard to copyright videos. It is possible but just need to spend some time figuring out all the talk to get it done.

Good luck smile.gif

Wally,

Yep it works Generally you need to see if your dvd's are standard and at 4.5gb or smaller. Then they would fit on 1blank DVD-+r or if they are larger DVD X Copy will rip it to 2 DVD-+R discs. Generally the one thing I disliked about the program was that it put a warning at the beginning of each disc. A better and cheaper program from what I've heard is DVD2One. But before using it you will need to Rip the DVD to your HD. Which can be easily done with a FreeWare program called DVD-Decryptor. Hope this helps.

I should also mention that with DVD2One, as the name states it makes any DVD fit on 1 blank DVD. By downsampling the Video. And it is still very good quality.

Tight Lines,

    •   I think that's exactly what I should have done. It would have probably reached me sooner. 
    • I'm thinking of selling my IceGator and going with the Strikemaster. Looking at the Strikemaster, it is not as bulky and heavy. The IceGator does cut ice like butter, especially with a Strikemaster 224 bit!
    •   The default temp is 360 for the NuWave 36001 Brio I mentioned above, but it can be programmed as high as 390. I absolutely agree that it does make a difference for certain things to get those extra 30-40 degrees.
    • yes i did i messaged him directly outside of the post
    • Looks like the Hawks might be without Crawford the rest of the season.   http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2018/01/16/report-blackhawks-concerned-crawford-could-miss-remainder-of-season/
    • We use a line voltage thermostat, with it set in the "cool" position.  Once it hits the set temp the thermostat kicks the fan on, until it gets below the set point.  Works pretty well.  
    • Strange I received our notification for WI yesterday but the page does not show any update. Either way WI permits are out. Already planning and getting blinds ready for this spring    
    • I have not used one, but they have attracted my attention. I have a wheelhouse but think this would be a better early ice option. Surprised at how pricey they are, but aluminum must be spendy! I think your ability to pull with the snowmobile will vary with snow depth, slushy conditions etc..... Studs will probably be helpful?  If you go that route, report back how it works!
    • I finally used it I was just testing it out getting the feel of things so didn't follow a recipe just cut up some Yukon gold potatoes zucchini onion and threw in a bunch of chicken breast. 1 can of cream of chicken and 2 cups of beer. Actual cook time after pressurized 12 mins. Some of the most tender chicken I have ever had.   Next day I made some jasmine rice and cubed some chicken breast and coated with sesame chicken sauce. Didn't think the sauce would steam good on its own so I put half cup of water as well. Then drained liquid when itt was done cooking and tossed them in more sauce before eating.   All in all I like it so far pretty easy stuff.
