Hey Cjac, when my dad logs in all he has to do is move the cursor (hand) over the post (subject) and it shows a preview (the first several lines or image) of that post, but it doesn't do that on mine when I log in. Do you know how I can add that feature? Thank you.

Hunter- I drove past you and your dad with your rig right before the bridge of the mississippi river before Little Falls last night... how was the fishing?

I think you need to update your browser or plugins. Something like media flasher or something. Some computer savy folks will know.

Do you use IE or Firefox?

I'd recommend the latter, or google chrome. Either way sounds like you need an update.

Either need an newer windows operating system or updated web browser I would guess. I know that feature doesnt work on my older computer.

before my last computer went out i had windows XP and that did'nt work. the new computer has vista and now it does. so i'm leaning toward what the other guys said. but if you do change keep in mind your other equipment might not work. i.e. printer, fax, scanner etc. one of the things that angered me about vista. and the fact that sending certain places/people e-mails is a pain.

Actually that is part of this forums software. The setting should be in your profile "My Stuff". It is user unique so make sure the settings are correct.

You can turn that feature on or off.

I knew it was a profile/preference setting but couldn't find specifically where it was at.

Under the "My Stuff" menu, click on "Profile", about halfway down the Profile menu is this setting:

Show Tooltip (1-yes, 0-no)

This is the setting that controls it, 1 for if you want the preview and 0 for no preview when you "mouse" over stuff.

Thanks Hanson, I knew it was there, but I can't do that at all on this computer because of the Java restrictions.

    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.        
    • Volume wise it cuts the same as any othe 8" auger.  Does the Nils make finer chips than others?   I never saw the issue the few times I used mine.  Can you reverse the drill and push the slush down the hole.?
    • Sorry, but Ive had enough of the indepedent/liberturd fence sitter crowd pissing down their righteousness on reality.
    •   Makes no difference what place we are in or that Stall has scored 2 goals in the last 5 games (you call that bunches?).....who would not want to play the Wild in the first round at this point?  This is absolutley shocking to me....they appear to me like a ship without a Captain....7 games left to figure it out.
    •   I go fishing here whenever I need a laugh.  They are always biting.......well the big fat Sucker Fish anyway.
    • i have seen more useless products succeed, but I can't see a practical use for this thing. I do agree with the icing aspect as well as the battery life. U better have a option to free spool this. 
    • Bearsheet4brains to the rescue.    
    •   Then the bad wookies landed, trying to get everyone to believe they were gods and could cure everything with their magical potions, driving a few totally batpoop. Pretty soon there was name calling and bashing, and it just went on and on. Others that were smart left, and the ones still there continued arguing about what kind of people and things were better, with no respect for anyone or anything, since the gods no longer stepped in and stopped it, except to change words that had no meaning anyway. Pretty soon, it was all arguing wookies and people and other creatures, until the land of the forum exploded, throwing all the creatures spinning  out into space, where they formed their own little galaxies, and soon they all  started arguing and preaching and complaining and.....
    • Here is how the math works out on the 100 holes per day.  First off, not every hole gets fished.  Secondly, I am not just drilling holes for myself.  When I am with my kids or an older person or fishing partners who don't understand where the holes need to located on a particular area I might drill all the holes for 4 people to hole hop.  Thirdly, ice thickness plays a roll.  I will drill many more holes in a day on 16" of ice than 30".  I know this may be hard for some to understand but some people really truly actually will drill 100 holes in a day.  I am a very crafty ice fisherman who has adapted to extreme cold weather by using a portable "flip over" shelter and propane heater to keep myself warm and my equipment from icing up.  Yes, even when hole hopping.  That's why they call it a portable.  Haha.
