      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 .

Headlamp

Recommended Posts

While perusing the aisles of Fleet Farm today I noticed a new headlamp. It's a cap light style. While the style that clips the bill of the cap is nothing new, a couple of the features were.

The thing that made be do a double take was that it is rechargeable. You can charge it 3 ways, AC/DC/USB.

It also had a function to emit a high frequency sound to deter the bugs.

I almost pulled the trigger, but decided not too.

I'd like to hear if anyone picks one of these up and see how long the battery lasts in between charges.

The packaging claims that you "never" have to replace batteries.

Well even rechargeables don't last forever.

I just have not had much luck with rechargeable batteries. In light emitting devices.

Requires 3-1/2 hours to full charge. Charge once a month during off season.

They look pretty decent but seriously, who needs the mode with 4 constant LED's and 2 blinking reds? smirk

I know now, most might shrug off the anti-bug feature, but in another couple weeks we will be rethinking anything to keep them off of us grin

Thanks Dtro for the heads up on this. I also might have to check into it.

With video shooting and our digi camera's, those 4 led do not sound so bad.

Ya, I just reread the stats. Strange????????

I wonder though, is this the series one clicker button style? I do not care for those all that much. When I need light, it is nice to switch a switch once to the setting you want, but the added features could out way that down side.

Let us know!

The anti bug sound might be questionable at best. I have tested these sound omitting devices for mice and I could not find where one worked worth a hoot.

    • Stumbled on this thread and nice to see that cool truck! That's is a sweet find. Reminds me of the project truck of my buddy's uncle. 1992 F150 2x4 6" suspension lift, Motometal forged wheels, and 33" tires.
    • Sacrilege!! Burn him! Burn him! 
    • Picked up a beat up old snowmobile sleigh with holes and cracks for cheap. 20 years in fiberglass mfg helped a lot! Fun little project to haul the grandsons around for some ice fishing and trail riding.
      Still need to add the windshield. I call it the "Monster Hauler!"
    • Agree to the fact that sometimes things we smoke do add up money wise.  I smoked 35 pounds of goose sausage today for the kid, spent around 100 bucks, trim, seasonings, casing etc.  But......... i got to drink about 13,14 and watch the queens while i did it, thats why I smoke. lol
    • From the tree I assume, not the stand.  But close for sure!  Nice to have a 10 pointer down (and all the other stuff) by this time of year.
    • Sucks to be you, I guess. You really don't know much about BBQ, do you?  
    • Except your thesis is contradicted by the fact that much BBQ doesn't really have much in the way of "strong spices".   
    • I wouldn't call BBQ pork gourmet. It's just finding enough of the right combinations of strong spices and salt to make the poor, tough cuts tolerable to eat. Kinda like the buffalo wings craze. Wings used to be the throwaway parts of a chicken you had to take to get breast meat. Now per pound they are more expensive than any other part of the chicken.    Not a complaint at all as I am pretty addicted to wings and I live pulled pork as well.  Just an observation./opinion. No harm or hurt feelings intended.
