      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 always thought it was a visual issue. Not sure of the footage away but going house to house without seeing your lines might be a problem. I've wondered in the summer, casting a sucker off the dock and walking up to the cabin to get something if that was in wrong as well. 
    • I’ve heard people have been getting cited for not bringing up their lines to go their buddies houses less than 200 feet away.    What I haven’t heard is the reason why this legally different than having a tip up outside your house.  I won’t argue that it is different, just haven’t heard why, and what notification systems make it or break it.   Its another situation where the use of technology is moving faster than the laws.  I agree with Pro V: contact the DNR before you have to try to explain it on the ice.  Or maybe you’ve had to do that already.
    • Got another good ride in yesterday ,,, Almost took the same route as the last time I did the Tac but took a wrong turn and put on a few extra miles but still and enjoyable ride ,,, Had lunch at Side Lake and then headed out to the Bearskin trail ,,, Nice trail flat, straight and fast ,, A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way ,,, I think every one enjoyed the ride and trail conditions ,,, As I type the snow is falling and Im sure trail conditions are improving 
    • Good question to ask the warden.
    • I can't think of one reason to ever have a gas auger again... I get around 20 holes per battery this time of year with a lazer 7 inch
    • WAIT FOR IT Here is James Vladyka's story: This is one of my best friends. We grew up together and have made some crazy memories over the years. He joined the Army shortly after we got out of high school and there was many years where we had to make the best out of a few days of leave that he would get to hunt and fish.   To many years have passed 2 tours Iraq, 3 tours Afghanistan and a few years private contracting he has served our country proudly. Now he's retired and we are making more memories again.   This was another battle to add to his long list.  Brock landed this beautiful Pike through a 6 in kdrill hole on a 20" Jason Mitchell meat stick with a Clam Dropkick tipped with a white Super Jamei on 2 lbs CPT line.   The 14 inch white Crappie in it's mouth was placed there for a size reference. The assist goes to another one of my good friends not pictured Blaine Goad. He reach down the hole and help her come topside

    • They love them, I used to get 40# sacks for $16 in Thief River Falls at Hunters Outlet. Haven't had to work up there for a couple years now, it was a great buy.   One draw back was the small moths coming from the bag in the warm months. Came back from fishing in Alaska to a garage full of them one time.   
    • If I leave my 2 lines down when I leave my fishouse and go to my buddies house say 75’ away they are considered unattended and illegal, but what if the lines are on buzzer reels and I use a baby monitor to listen for a bite?
    • Yah, I bet I coulda looked that one up myself, eh?
