      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 .

Metallica '08

Recommended Posts

Anyone excited for the new Metallica album? I see there are a few videos posted on 93X's HSOforum showing some studio footage. I sure hope it's better than St. Anger....heck, I don't think it could get much worse! And that's coming from a Metallica fan.

I haven't heard lately what the drop date is of the album, but I think the last I heard was the fall. It seems like lately the radio stations have been pushing a lot of Metallica songs so I'm wondering if they're ramping up for the debut of the first single soon.

cool

Metallica has a history of pushing back their release date a few times... I wouldn't be surprised if we had to wait until next spring or summer.

Yeah, I hear ya on that one. Lets cross our fingers. It seems like they like to play the drama card a little too much to get people whipped up for the CD release so that they can sell more....as if they need the money!

Die hard Metallica fan here too so this is highly anticipated. Funny, I didn't really get into the St. Anger CD either. None of the songs clicked with me. Very disappointing. frown

Absolutely!

So what is everyone's favorite album?

Without a doubt "...And Justice For All" is mine. I'm on my second CD of that one already since I wore out the first one.

Huge fan here...but of the "older" stuff.

"And Justive For All" was great, but "Ride the Lightning" and "Master of Puppets" and the best in my eyes.

I worry though, for right before St. Anger Lars said "Now we can put out anything we want, and people will still buy it". And, look what they put out.

I hope they go back to their heavy rocking ways and style. They can keep the short hair, just rock my socks off.

Lisa is a huge Metallica fan?? Wow, what a woman! (That was a compliment, Lisa).

Master of Puppets would be my top choice, followed by And Justice for All, Ride the Lightning, Kill em All, and Garage Inc(I know, doesn't really fit in the group but I like it).

Yeah, MOP and RTL are great too, but something about AJFA just puts it a hair above the those for me.

I think (and hope) that after St. Anger they rethink their idea of "putting anything out and people will buy it" because it was horrible and I don't know anyone that would dispute that and I bet they realize that now. It sounded like Lars was pounding on a soup can and that was enough for me.

I'm a Metallica fan - but I'm much more fond of a live performance. S & M - with the orchestra, was an amazing performance, in my opinion, just because it was so different. Battery with the orchestra was cool - scary and will rip your face off.

I am also an "Older Stuff Fan". I love everything before the "Black Album". Some of the black album is pretty good also, but you can't beat all of the other stuff.

FYI. I was in 7th grade when ...And Justice For All came out.

I too was sicker than a dog when they did that 3-night stand at the Target Center with Kid Rock and Sevendust. It was a pretty laid back set without all the lights and fire. Now, back in '97 I believe it was in the Fargo Dome that was a different story! What a show! I was right up front and they had a center stage with all kinds of things going on. Stagehands on fire, some falling from the tall scaffolding, it was nuts and they blew the roof off the house of the Bison!

Kinda funny, but the morning of that show I stood in line at the Fargo Dome for George Strait/Mindy McCready tickets while the Metallica trucks were rolling in. George Strait tickets in the morning and Metallica that night. Can't get any better!!

And Justice for All is my favorite, but Ride the Lightning is right up there with it, "Fade to Black" is probably my favorite song.

I can't hear "Master of Puppets" the song and NOT have the kidnapping scene from Old School playing in my head. They couldn't have picked a better song for that scene.

    •   Sounds plausible to me.  Is the thickened footing in your mind the same as pouring the perimeter of the slab thicker?  We did an 8 inch perimeter around the 4 inch slab.
    • Yes. But on a post framed building the only think I ever see is a thickened footing and not a foundation to the frost line. A major benefit of post framing is that you install the posts below the frost line so the need for a concrete foundation below the frost line is not needed. If I am understanding the question correctly. 
    • FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone.   May a person park their own vehicle in their own driveway approach?
    • I think they’re more looking at the footings requirement, aren’t they?  Thus the reason for getting the poles below the frost line?   Its the township’s responsibility to figure this out and you have the right to ask them to cite the code they’re following.   I used to live in Isanti County and dealt with a building inspector from my township on the construction of my detached garage.  Things weren’t very strict to say the least.     We built everything by the current UBC code, so I’d suggest first getting a copy of the current version of that since this building will actually be your home.  Don’t take unnecessary shortcuts to save a few bucks up front.  You’ll eventually regret it.   Reading your plans for the slab, it sounds pretty good.  There are plenty of slab homes out there built the way you describe.  What you don’t want is movement.     I’m not an expert by any means but I think footings on your slab wouldn’t be a bad idea and sinking your poles that deep should be a requirement.  If you don’t do footings, at least pour your slab thicker on the perimeter to hold it better.    Your local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) can be more restrictive than code, but not less.  So if it’s defined in the UBC, you have to do at least that much.
    • I’ve personally been on both sides of this.   Used to love getting as much air as possible over driveways but I never understood gunning it on the other side after crossing.  I guess some are just mild adrenaline junkies.    I quit doing that for one, because it’s illegal, and two, not safe if the homeowner happens to be leaving or getting the mail at the time.   Now that I have a posted trail going over my driveway, I find it just rude, obnoxious and irritating to deal with 4 wheelers and sleds gunning it over the gravel and making ruts and eroding my base to the point of it being an expense to either plow and pack the class 5 back in place or spend the money to pave it.  I hate having to bounce over two ruts with my trailers and whatever I’m hauling in them too.   I think that’s the worst part for me.  Either jump it or be mellow on the throttle the entire way over.   I’ve seen trail groomers go around driveways before, making me wonder if that truly is a requirement or they were simply being courteous.  But I agree with knoppers, they should not drag over the driveway.  Maybe they think they’re taking the snow off for ya.  Call the people responsible for the trail and ask them for suggestions.  
    • If you want to get through ice fast and are going to re-tool for it completely, look at a Nils before making your final decision. 
    • I am fully aware of this as are most people.
    • some people are bad apples that give the sport a bad name, I as a snowmobiler have respect for driveways. FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone. trail groomers actually do you a favor by knocking down the bank, to keep it level. unless your groomer was not well trained, they will not groom over your driveway.
    • If code allows post frame for residential construction then by design you don't need a block foundation. 
    • Perfect that awnsers my question. Why spend $250 when I could spend $150 on a new lazer bit and cuts faster, it’s more durable but still about same weight and a chipper but. Really a no brainer. What are you seeing for drilling time with that 8 inch lazer?
