      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 .

Black Friday Deals

Recommended Posts

I heard that Sam's Club will be selling a Wii package on Black Friday that contains the game unit, 3 controllers, 3 Nun Chuks and 3 games for $224. Sounds like a pretty good deal!

Sounds like a dream, if it's legitimate that would be a great deal. However I doubt that would happen as the system still retails for $250, controllers are still $40 each and Nunchuks's are still $20 each. Grand total of $470 before taxes and that still doesn't include any games.

It has been confirmed that this promo was a price mistake and the correct price will be $425.

I've heard rumors of some great LCD TV deals coming this holiday season. I have wanted to upgrade for awhile now, this might be the best time to do it.

If you have any money left now is a great time to get alot of bang for your buck.

There are quite a few sites that have the Black Friday deals listed already. There are definitely some good deals to be had on TV's right now.

Best Buy will probably have the best deals, and they usually post the best of the best online right before. TV's often are the best deals, as well as some cheap laptops. The best deals will go very quickly, so you are talking starting a camp out around 10PM (depending on your location). Some of the less tempting but still good deals will be around all day (like the projection TV's). I camped out for my monitor, was a great deal 2 years ago, and prices are just now falling to the price I got it for (only the current model doesn't have TV inputs).

I remember Circuit City used to have all single CDs for $9.99 Ahhhhh- those were the days. I doubt they do that anymore since they are broke. Oh, and not many people buy CDs anymore

Just google Black Friday Ads 2008 and you will find various places that have a lot of ads listed. I started planning on where I'll be hitting this year. I know I want a 46 to 50" LCD or plasma for sure this year. It's my big spending spree for the year on that day. I get up at 3 and usually am home by 9 or so with a truck load of carp we don't need but fun to get.

Smart move. We went out last year for the first time on black Friday, headed out at 4:00 AM. They were already sold out of the advertised "good deals" and the people were nuts. We swore we'd never do that again.

I went out early ONE year for Black Friday deals. If I needed a $1000 tv or computer I might think about it....otherwise there isnt enough money in the world to get me back out in that mess.

Lines to the BACK of Menards. We're talking hours just to check-out. I'll be watching tv instead!

Screw it, I am going fishing. Who is with me?

Actually my buddy and I are planning to jump in the truck and drive north until we find ice we can walk on. Thursday night after the turkey nap I am trying to get a group of people to go to Pickle Park in Fridley. Girlfriend's brother's band is playing so it should be a fun couple of days.

I've only ever gone out once, and it was to [PoorWordUsage] Sporting Goods to get a Garmin etrex Legend Cx (color with map card capability) with case, cord, and Topo maps for the whole country for $150.00. Gave it to my dad that year.

Otherwise, I just let my wife and Mother-in-law go. They have done it for years, and she says she gets over half of her shopping done in about 4 hours. As long as I don't have to go, I don't care.

No, IPOD works, just had $10 in my pocket and wanted to get a CD for the wife, since I was buying PS3 games. Figured it would go over better when I tried to sneak the bag into the house. laugh

I bought Chinese Democracy the other day, but then, I have only been looking forward to that CD to come out for 13 or 14 years now.

Avoid the WII and get a decent game system. I got one last year and I am still waiting for them to release some decent games. Unless you like games like wii sports and lego whatever. The only good game thats come out has been the starwars one. Its good enough if your 7 but if you want more adult titles than hannah montana look elsewhere

I got a Wii and like it for what it is. FYI, Best Buy has an Xbox 360 with 60gb HDD and four games for $299. You can order them online tonight too. Acutally can get a lot of it ordered online if you just look at the stores.

I went out this morning and got myself a TV. went to wal-mart and got a 42" LCD for $598. It's a polaroid, so it's not as good as a sony, but I've wanted to upgrade for some time and the deal seemed pretty good!! I'm pretty excited! too bad the kids are home, so far all I've been able to see on it are Tom and Jerry and Dora!

that being said, I'll NEVER go out on black friday morning again!! that was nuts!!

That is nuts, every year it happens to a few people it seems, just my opinion, but it ain't worth it, wonder how long it took before someone decided to check on him

    • I wont get out till Sat morn we shall see how it goes
    • Yikes! I think I see a gobbler track in the mud right before that blood trail starts. Hope everything turned out positive. Looking forward to pics.
    • I thought I would add some pictures. This is a 2013 frame from CW welding I believe. Yours might be a little different if it is from a different frame company. I started by blocking the house up and I removed the tire. The first time I ever did this their was almost no grease on the pivot at all. I bought this frame from a salvage auction after the house burned down. I am not sure if they did not grease it enough the first time or the grease got hot and ran out when the house burned down. This time when I took it off plenty of grease was still on the pivot and I could have got by another year without greasing it.   You can see the bolt you need to remove on the outside of the pivot.  Then cut the zip tie off to pull out the extra wire.  The whole arm will then slide off if you leave slack in the cables. I put a floor jack under the hub to make it easier. Then clean everything up and grease it.
    • Beautiful bird there Wallydog. Congrats  
    • Story goes like this. 1. Uncle from St Cloud arrives Boise 10 pm Thursday night 4/12. 2. Drive to Orofino Friday to hunt private property I've hunted since 1990 and scout some. 3. Deploy blind Saturday and scout (re-confirm bird presence) some more. 4. Arrive parking spot in fairly hard rain at 0430. 5. First gobble on roost at 0530. 6. 0550 flydown, Hens jakes and longbeards responding but not interested in my game......yet. 7. Very vocal birds for 45 minutes. 8. Silence for 1 hour 9. Distant gooble heard and responds to me at 0800 9a. Rain stops. 10. 0820 Gobbles getting closer, sounds like 3-5 birds. 11. Nuther gobble from different vector is heard.  12. Several longbeards now visible at 150 yards responding to everything I throw at them. 13. Gobble at ~60 yards from gobbler from different vector. 14. Mayhem, cacophony, loudmouths. 15. Single gobbler appears and is walking right into a bad spot for him. 16. He dies at 0900 at 25 yards by my uncles shot. 17. I attempt to hold and call back other toms but they won't have it. 18. 1500 Decide to pull up and move blind 1/4 mile. 19. Set up by 1545. 20. 1600 Make one series of calls.................sit down. 21. 1605 Peek out the slot of my turkey silo blind and see nice silent longbeard walking to decoys 15 yards distant. 22. Mayhem 23. Poke uncle Don and look in direct he came from to see another very alert longbeard that slips out of sight. 24. Said long beard meets his waterloo by my shot at 1610 and can't call the alert bird back...... 25. 1700 see three hens and a strutter slipping into brush at 100 yards. 26. 1715 Said strutter appears silent but strutting in all his glory at 35 yds. 27. Don smokes this one as well!  This is the first year we can harvest 2 bearded turkeys in the same day and Don is very likely one of the first Non-Residents to do so legally. 28. Radar shows big rain coming. 29. Let's pack up before we get drenched again. 30. Monday was a total washout, rain, rain, rain and snow.  We didn't hunt but did a farm/crop tour of my son in laws operation in Lewiston. 31. Radar/forecast indicated nothing but moisture for Tuesday. So We Drove Home to Boise. 32. Don flew home this morning. All in all we had a tremendous trip seeing loads of game and visiting with landowners.              
    • As I think about it, my interpretation of 2 layers thick was probably not correct. It's a uniformly distributed load that's assumed. So if the 10PSF is correct and 4.25 PSF is used up, then there's 5.75PSF left to work with. That means a straight calculation of 64 SF(an 8x8 platform) x 5.75 PSF = 368 pounds total spread mostly evenly over the whole platform. If stuff starts getting piled up in one area, then that creates a concentrated load; that's when my brain starts to hurt!! BTW, there are always factors of safety built in to structural design, but you probably don't want to get into those....for safety.    BTW, me and electrons don't get along
    • Plan on hitting the woods Saturday Morning.  Not real keyed in the birds yet.   They will turn more predictable.
    • I agree, now is the time to go up since its cool out, especially for you. What about the basic roof vents, they must be able to get in that way if the screens are not intact..
