      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 .

vikings 15 colts 18????

Rather than complain about everything that went wrong for the Vikings today--Tarvaris Jackson's inconsistency, Longwell's critical missed field goal, bad non-calls by the officials, poor pass and run-blocking by the Vikings offensive line, key defensive mistakes against a patchwork Indy offense, and Shiancoe's stunning ability to make at least one mistake per game that ends up hurting Minnesota big-time--I will just say that all of today's problems (Tarvaris Jackson is only part of them, and he did look decent at times, with no huge mistakes) ultimately are the responsibility of the head coach. Either this Vikings team goes deep in the playoffs, or Childress has got to go the moment the season ends.

Childress should not be fired before the season ends. Bringing in a new coach with a new system will not help this veteran defense win now, nor would it make the quarterback play one bit better. I am not at all sure Gue Frerotte would be an improvement on Tarvars Jackson. And John David Booty, who looked lost, overwhelmed, and just plain awful in the pre-season, is not an option for a couple years at least. Jackson did not make any major mistakes today (Artis Hicks blew the block on Freeney that led to Jackson's fumble), and it was Childress, not Jackson, making those questionable play calls. For better or worse, we are committed to Tarvaris Jackson and Childress for the remainder of the season.

PLAYOFFS????LOL

The Vikings blew a perfect opportunity to beat the Colts. They didn't have their starting Center, Guard, L. Tackle and Tight End. How many Purple Rubes still think the Vikes will finish

10-6 to 13-3? crazycrazycrazyLOL

PACK 2-0

QUEENS 0-2

GO PACK GO!!!!

I say the Vikes go 13 and 3,,,,, 13 arrests and 3 convictions
LOL now you may just be on to something there and yes they may just be bottomdwellers all year no offence dweller but they look like a high school team out there with no QB my 2 cents.

I think Ziggy should think about spending some money on a QB. If I just dropped the money Ziggy did, and my team started the season 0-2........... I'd find a corner and cry myself to death!

I also heard this game was almost blacked-out. I can't believe he's a business man and hasn't realized offense sells tickets.

    • My budget would be more like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Raptor-Whisper-Air-Rifle-177/dp/B01AMAO86Y/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1513086150&sr=8-2&keywords=22%2Bpellet%2Bgun&th=1&psc=1   And you can get this one in either .177 or .22 evidently.
    • A gun is a gun, I like them all! This one is BA but a lot more than I personally would spend on an air rifle..... https://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/tactical-armada-22-pcp-1000-fps-028478145122.do?sortby=ourPicks  
    • Thanks for the extra pics.  Always nice to see how other houses are built.  Enjoy your new house.
    • The slush copter works great until you get into the 4' ice on LOW.  I still use the slush bucket in combination with the slush copter, the Nils auger likes to throw ice/slush and it keeps more off the floor and the walls.
    • Is that paneling on the walls and ceiling or what is it and where did you get it? Thanks.
    • Five of us had fifteen on Saturday in five hours of hunting. I would agree with bobberineyes that there does seem to be pockets of birds. The numbers are definitely not more than last year around here but about the same I would say. I have talked to a few farmers though that said they saw less while combining corn than last year. Should be able to get into the cattails pretty soon and that's always a good time.
    • Sure it is.  A high powered pellet rifle is almost a necessity if you can’t be cracking off 22 long rifles around the house.  I’ll have no further contributions to derailing this thread. 
    • adding a cheap bass cannon would help for sure. make sure you connect your wires correctly plus to plus from speaker to stereo, usually the copper colored wire or the wire that has a white strip on it is used for the positive, this helps you so you do correctly connect the speaker to the amp or radio. Right to right left out to left. Check balance setting on radio, check treb and bass setting start off at 50% and raise your bass setting while lowering your treb setting. I like a lot of bass so I am usually at 80% bass and 50% treb. Check to make sure you don't have cracked covers on your speaker's. You can also make small speaker boxes to put your speakers in and pack them loosely with insulation to give you more bass and direct your music out the front, if you are a little handy making a box.  Ya I have played around with speakers I have my entire house wired and the last time I counted 19 speakers in my place not counting another 10 for two surround sound systems.
    • Well kind of back to guns, I have been looking to buy a .22 pellet rife for the varmint's around here. a gun but not the kind you guys are talking about  I think.
    • I would not plug it in 24/7 no need. an hour before you need it should be enough, not even cold enough to think about plugging something in when it is above zero out. you just need  a good battery. 2013 it is not even an old truck and the block heater is heating the engine which is not what warms the truck up when you start it anyway
