      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 .

The blind dude was really good and I was hoping he would be. The one blonde girl with the heavey accent that got through, you know who I'm talking about? Was it just me or did she look like the puppet from SAW?

How about that guy with the really deep voice? I couldn't stop laughing with every word he sang. Same with that kid who looked like he was in pain as he was singing. I believe Simon mentioned to him that he wasn't sure if he was singing in Bulgarian because he couldn't understand a word he sang.

I'll watch for the first couple weeks to see these kind of acts, then again the last week to see the really good acts. All the stuff in the middle is boring to me.

I think "bikini chick" got her "points" across to Simon and Randy but not sure Paula or the new chick was buying them! LOL

I was watching the show with my 25 year old son and I had to keep rolling his tongue back into his mouth while he was watching. He just kept saying, "yummy" during her whole audition.

Man, those two were funny for sure. The deep voice guy, at first I thought he would be unique and then he started, what he thought was singing.

I didn't care for the bikini chick one bit.

One thing that gets me through watching the show with the fam, beside the family time, is DVR.

There's more than once where they show a closeup of the judges, and then during the same audition, they show a judge again, but you can see off to the side where there's another judge sitting.

Last night they showed Paula sitting to the right of Simon, and during the same audition, they showed Kara sitting to the right of Simon.

You could just see the edge of her arm and shoulder on the edge of the screen.

I had to rewind to show the wife.

Some pretty good talent the first two nights. I think it will be another good season. I like the fact that they added the fourth judge Kara something. She actually appears to have her own opinion compared to Paula who just reiderates what Simon and Randy state. I hope this is Paula's last season. She adds nothing besides mumbling nonsense....

I watched last night...only for my wife wanted to.

There are so many "fakes" on there that act like they can sing and just want to get on TV. Do people really think that these people actually believe they have talent? Come on.

And, some of the people they "like" vs some they "hate" are jokes. How did the "rapper" last night get through? Or the weird guy that had a dream about Simon. Then, they cut the guy with the cheerleaders. Come on....

I lost respect for the show when they cut a lady for she did not have the "looks" to be a singer. She sang beautifully, and they told her that...but they ALL voted no for her looks were not there. And now they say it is not about looks, come on.

I hope my wife doesn't want to watch it with me again....

Yeah, I know. Not everyone likes the same things, or has the same tastes in anything...what I was spoofing about is the topic of guys watching the American Idol...nothing but idle banter, something to write about on a cold day...nothing to it and not aimed at anyone.

the first couple weeks is for the laughs and the last couple weeks are tough. cuts are such a big downer for the people that make it that far. but the good thing is that the people that make it close to the end usually end up in bigger and better contracts than the on AI gives out. look a chris daughtry(sp) he is rockin it and he did not win.. last year david cook won and he isnt doing to hot... there are a few other examples just dont want to write a story...

    • FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone.   May a person park their own vehicle in their own driveway approach?
    • I think they’re more looking at the footings requirement, aren’t they?  Thus the reason for getting the poles below the frost line?   Its the township’s responsibility to figure this out and you have the right to ask them to cite the code they’re following.   I used to live in Isanti County and dealt with a building inspector from my township on the construction of my detached garage.  Things weren’t very strict to say the least.     We built everything by the current UBC code, so I’d suggest first getting a copy of the current version of that since this building will actually be your home.  Don’t take unnecessary shortcuts to save a few bucks up front.  You’ll eventually regret it.   Reading your plans for the slab, it sounds pretty good.  There are plenty of slab homes out there built the way you describe.  What you don’t want is movement.     I’m not an expert by any means but I think footings on your slab wouldn’t be a bad idea and sinking your poles that deep should be a requirement.  If you don’t do footings, at least pour your slab thicker on the perimeter to hold it better.    Your local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) can be more restrictive than code, but not less.  So if it’s defined in the UBC, you have to do at least that much.
    • I’ve personally been on both sides of this.   Used to love getting as much air as possible over driveways but I never understood gunning it on the other side after crossing.  I guess some are just mild adrenaline junkies.    I quit doing that for one, because it’s illegal, and two, not safe if the homeowner happens to be leaving or getting the mail at the time.   Now that I have a posted trail going over my driveway, I find it just rude, obnoxious and irritating to deal with 4 wheelers and sleds gunning it over the gravel and making ruts and eroding my base to the point of it being an expense to either plow and pack the class 5 back in place or spend the money to pave it.  I hate having to bounce over two ruts with my trailers and whatever I’m hauling in them too.   I think that’s the worst part for me.  Either jump it or be mellow on the throttle the entire way over.   I’ve seen trail groomers go around driveways before, making me wonder if that truly is a requirement or they were simply being courteous.  But I agree with knoppers, they should not drag over the driveway.  Maybe they think they’re taking the snow off for ya.  Call the people responsible for the trail and ask them for suggestions.  
    • If you want to get through ice fast and are going to re-tool for it completely, look at a Nils before making your final decision. 
    • I am fully aware of this as are most people.
    • some people are bad apples that give the sport a bad name, I as a snowmobiler have respect for driveways. FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone. trail groomers actually do you a favor by knocking down the bank, to keep it level. unless your groomer was not well trained, they will not groom over your driveway.
    • If code allows post frame for residential construction then by design you don't need a block foundation. 
    • Perfect that awnsers my question. Why spend $250 when I could spend $150 on a new lazer bit and cuts faster, it’s more durable but still about same weight and a chipper but. Really a no brainer. What are you seeing for drilling time with that 8 inch lazer?
    • From my experience one of my only complaints with the Kdrill is how slow it drills. It more than gets the job done but my laser 8” is faster.
    • So I’ve always fished 8 inch holes but really why? Most Anything can fit through a 6 inch hole anyway. I was thinking maybe for next season of getting a 6 or 8 inch I drill and putting it on my 1.5hp solo. Right now it’s about 24lb which is light but with the k drill it would be lighter yet. My question is would I be getting any more speed out of a k drill vs regular SM chipper bit? And then I can invest in a nice Milwaukee fuel and there we go.
