      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.

To recharge this eco-friendly G3 LED Cap Light, simply plug the included USB cable into your computer or utilize either the DC or AC adapters which come with this Premier package. 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.

    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon. 
    • Looking good! I also wanted reverse lights. I used some of the really bright light bars from Amazon on mine.  
    • I would fur it out another inch, then spray foam and finish to the furring strips.  No vapor barrier needed at that point.
