      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 .

DIRTY POWER

Recommended Posts

So I just purchased my new Plasma TV and the sales person tried to convince me that I needed to spend another 500 bucks on a machine that would eliminate the dirty power coming into my home. He gave me a demonstration with a voltage type meter that provided a reading with and without the unit. I said thanks but no thanks. Anybody have any knowledge on this subject?

Thanks……

More like an overpriced UPS.

All the device will do is attempt to maintain a steady voltage and clean up the sine wave of the AC power coming into the home (power conditioner). If you're a hi-fi rube that has to have everything just perfect then this is another aspect of trying to make every signal clean, even the power supplying the home theater devices. It's really not needed for the everyday casual TV/movie viewer.

Wow, that's a new one to me. They try to get you to buy all kinds of junk. I love how stuff doesn't even come with the cabeling anymore and they want $50 for "Monster Cable". IMO, good call not going with hit.

BTW- I sold vacuum cleaners for about a day in Missouri. Shoulda seen the demo the pro had on those. Instead of selling them, I almost bought one myself. Then I remembered, I was there because I didn't have a job and therefore had no cash. Some of these demos make you want to buy something, but 9 times out of 10 they are a waste of money. I have a set of Ginsu knives if anyones interested. I will even show you how to slice and dice a pop can

Hahaha... I attended a seminar on how to sell those knives door-to-door, I walked out after 30 minutes because I knew I would be ripping people off out of hard earned money.

Lat time I saw these knives for sale they were $ 1.50 ?? How can you have a commission on $ 1.50 ?

And most of all how can you make a set of knives for $ 1.50 ???

Especially with steel prices so high! How can china drive up the price of steel, then sell a knife back to me that'll help recycle my pop cans at 1/20 my cost? Obviously I missed something in my economics class! grin

I bought a monster cable surge protector with the clean power 2 circuitry and spent about $100, this was about 5 years ago, the biggest appeal to me is it had 12 plug-ins so I could hook up all my gadgets.

    • I would also bleed them before storing in an ice box.
    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
    • 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.
