      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 .

Doop,

If you can not tell by my avitar, maybe I can quote the picture on my desk at work that reads, "My two favorite teams are the White Sox....And Whoever is Playing the Cubs!"

You will get a different story from Gene Gene The Cubbie-Loving Machine, as soon as he logs on.

I don't understand your message dude (are you trying to say 15 more changes between WSox and Twins for 1st pl?)

It's just me and you Doop......Hey, Hey - Holy Mackerel No doubt about it. The Cubs are on their way......

Right you are Geno. I had said to dude that I predicted about 10 lead changes in the Sox/Twinks race and then after 3 this week, I upped the number to at least 15. Should be an exciting roller coaster ride. Looks like you have found another person drinking the Cubbie Blue Kool-Aid in Doop. Have fun on your pennant run but don't get too full of yourself because there is a Bartman or a Billy Buckner around every corner from now till October!

Yep, ever since the Cubs put the Brewers in their place the Brew Crew had a dugout fight which seems to have propelled them.

Cubs on the road again could be trouble.

But you know the old saying, don't look back....

Hope they follow that advice and just keep playing the way they are capable of.

C'mon Soriano...get hot again!

LOL...good stuff guys.

Gene...what do you think of Fukodome dropping off like he has lately. I'd hate to see him on the bench because his glove is one of the best in the game...but watching him hit lately is a painful experience.

I'd like to see Johnson, Dero, or even give Hoffpauer a shot. That guy is RED HOT at Iowa! Give Kosuke a chance to clear his head a little.

GO CUBS GO!

And a Texan at that Windy.

Just a little hard to give a guy like Fukudome makin' $12Mill any time off. His moving around in the order can't be too good for him either though.

Johnson has been much more than I ever thought he would be...great addition. Lou's gotta be scratching his head every day making out the lineup with trying to keep the hottest guys in there.

I know one thing...Edmonds keeps hitting bombs...Reed will not be playing center! lol I can't believe the addition Edmonds has been. Fukodome hitting 2nd and The-Riot hitting 8th?

Would not have been my choice of a starting lineup...but Lou is the man smile

When I lived in Wisconsin in the 80s, my favorite bartender got me going on the Cubs. Those were the Ryno days when they were good. I couldn't name you five guys of this year's team.

A few years ago I was at a game at Wrigley...wearing my Ryne Sandberg jersey as I always do....after the game (Cubs lost) I was disgruntled and ready to go home after I bought a hat from one of the souvenir shops across the street. This guy comes up behind me and says "that's a nice jersey you have on there" I half turn around and say thank you. I turned back facing forward and almost filled my drawers. It was Ryno!!!! lol He was so cool! He signed my jersey, took a picture with him, and he signed a ball for me. Unbelievable moment.

I would have to say that Kosuke got the message. lol

He really needs to be in the lineup...just hope he can regain some of his early season patience at the plate. His defense is 2nd to none.

Dropped on his head made him a WSox fan? Good one. So that is what happened to Windy I guess.

A little southern cookin' in Atl was just what the doctor ordered for our Cubs. Now to continue the quest.

Good story about Ryno and the jersey-way cool. Post the pic if you can.

    • Then you can tell that to all the professional chefs that use sous vide.  
    • My new project involves putting my big boy pants on and upgrading from the 4'x7' panel on the fish house to a 8'x24' for the house. Believe it or not but I had to unhook it from the house for fear of starting a fire due to making too much heat. I haven't quite figured out how to control it yet. 
    • We have a gas furnace too. But if it's sunny we run the entire house on solar. Heat and electric. It may not sound like much but in that 8x12 we have had days where we need to open windows. The one thing it won't do is throttle down or turn off until the sun goes down. I know it's a duh thing but a consequence you don't think of at the design phase. It also works great when you aren't out there  it sure is great to come out to the house after work and the house is already at 60F or warmer   It was only an experiment for a larger project but turned out pretty cool. Something to do. 
    • This all sounds pretty darn sweet. You may want to start making and selling them.  So, what heats the house at night when the sun goes down?  Or did I miss something? 
    • Imagine just a black box with 2 holes at top and 2 at the bottom with a green house sheeting over the top. All 2x8 cedar and a piece of foam board. 
    • I have a pc type fan in each outlet pulling air through the panel. These are wired to the small solar panels that are behind the plastic sheeting. These are then wired to a snap switch that closes the circuit at 80F and off at 65F. So the fans won't turn on unless they have power supplied by their own solar panels and the temp inside the panel is 80F+. And ya just a pvc trim piece for a cleaner look. We did find that we needed to add just one layer of a ziplock bag to the outlet holes. Just any piece of thin plastic would do. This covered the holes to stop backfeeding at night. And once the fans kick on it's not a problem.  I don't but it hasn't been bad at all. And if you drive north all day it actually works and the house is definitely warmer than the outside once we get there. The whole setup I have maybe $100-$200. The larger solar panel and dual battery system is a whole different deal. 
    • I have given him a bunch of tips if he really took the time to read them before things went south. 1) Add more pictures and some from the sides. Right now all anyone can tell is their buying a hood, windshield and skis! 2) Take the old thin piece of rope off the bumper. 3) Post it on the site that sees a lot more sleds sold. And now. 4) Spend a few minutes and wipe it down clean and Armor-All it and may be spray a little black Rust-Oleum on the skis and other rust colored metal parts.  But that all may be a little more work then he wants to put into getting it out of his garage. Do I have a little experience at buying and selling sleds over many years? Well this one I bought for $2,800. I used it for 3 years and put a few 1000 miles on it and sold it for $2,700 More our less 3 years rent for $100 bucks! Took that money plus $150 more and bought the other one below for $2,850 with only 122 miles on it and it is spotless. So in a few years guess what!  
    • Unfortunately this is probably very true. 
    • Whatever works for ya. To each his own, right? Lot of things on here that aren't my thing, but they keep jabbing right along.
    • I know one you can sing....but it's sad that he has to satirize a song of a musician that just passed away, though. Ah, he doesn't see it from your side Glenn, because it's not his side. If one of us had attempted a rhyme, in reference to him, he'd be all over it.  He needs the site to run according to his views. He's a straight, upstanding fella, ya know. He said so.  Maybe we should sing his song... but he'd go catatonic.  I'm sure you've all heard it in the service. I am surprised it took him this long to jump in. . I will say a certain person(s) did sum it up in that PM, right on the ol' button. *BINGO*!  Carry on! Maybe tomorrow I'll post that song on his thread.....
