      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 .

ADD at work

Recommended Posts

Well, I get a little ADD when looking at a computer all day. Today, the tornado sirens started going off outside. I threw my headset down and started running around yelling "Air Raid". I work with a ton of people, got some crazy looks and a few just hit the floor laughing at me.

Anyone else do anything crazy to break the monoteny?

I like putting a small piece of scotch tape over the microphone on the phone. Tt usually takes them awhile to figure it out.

Or unplug the keyboard/mouse.

Sending faxes to people's phones who sit near you is also a good one. Especially if it auto-redials them.

When I get bored I walk around and put tape on the bottom of peoples mouses so they wont work. Ive had people come to me with broken mice after slamming them and breaking them. When you pull the tape off they just turn red lol

Make sure your paper shredder is turned off and unplugged. Then take the end of your tie and shove it down in the teeth and start hollering and acting like you're being choked to death.

Trust me on the laughs on this one.

A little die-electric grease on the phone. Ketchup packets under the toilet seat (under the stand offs) makes a real mess. Where I work you need to dial 8 to get an outside line, all of our extensions are 4 digits so you page someone to call 8911. Almost too many to post!

one time my boss was working at her computer (and quite focused at what she was doing). I walked out of the back room with a small box and flipped it upside down a few feet behind her, then stomped on it...the resulting blast made her jump about a foot off her chair, then she laughed about it.

Another time i found a rubber snake and put it in one of the paperwork drawers, the next day she yelled at me when i walked in the door. She also said she was gonna get revenge but it hasnt happened yet smile

Hey...I am really getting ADD at work...11 working days (?) left and it is really getting hard to concentrate on anything...one of our tricks in the repair shop area was to find some spare screws or springs and drop them on the floor next to the guy repairing a part. He would then take the thing apart again to see where he forgot to put the screw or spring in. laughlaugh

Sandmannd- this was the best one! For some reason just 20 minutes ago our weather alert radio started alarming (I think for heat advisory warning, I don't know, clear blue skies). I came out of my office running in circles yelling AIR RAID!! AIR RAID!! good times gringrin

Glad you got to use it, it's a blast.

Found a new one to do. I take a little toilet paper and get it nice and wet. Then walk up behind a co-worker and do a "fake" sneeze while tossing it at the back of their neck.

Yea, I've been slapped a few times but it's still fun. And it works multiple times on people.

    • great pictures fellas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • You don't have to like him but not many coaches in the history of the NFL did more than Dennis Green did. I would say he was a "good" coach.
    • I finally got out to try my first gen helix 5 this weekend.  Fished in 8 feet of water next to a lx5 and Lx7 in an otter lodge.  The flasher screen was not the best.  It was slow to react to my jig movement and i tried a few things to speed it up to no avail.  I switched it over to the graph and it was much better.  I am somewhat used to the graph as i use both on the LX7.  I didn't have any trouble with interference but i was only using the 200hz on the Helix.  It was definitely not in the same class as the Marcum considering the Marcum is a dedicated ice unit but as a dual use unit for the summer and winter it has lived up to my expectations.  I believe the new units will be much better in this regard.  Battery life was pretty good as i fished for about 15 hours on Saturday and i would say i had about 60% battery left.  Overall i am happy with the performance on the first outing.  I will chime back in when i get into some deeper water to compare the interference.    
    • what the heck did i just watch???  lol
    • Although it's tough to compete with diving giraffes, here is one of my all time favorites! 
    • I did sir. I was just agreeing with you. I listed both if mine and the trailer this fall but wanted to fix a few minor things on them before I let them go. I listed them and had a ton if interest while they were at the shop but it took forever to get them back and decided not to sell at that time because I was too busy to look for the upgrade I wanted to do. I think I will just keep them forever now.
    • Actually he can return for the playoffs. It's only the regular season that he can't play in.
    • I ended up selling ours last year, they just sat on the trailer with the limited snow. Got a Honda ATV, I'm burning gas again.
    • If the teams success is riding on Case’s shoulders and they wind up being the first team in NFL history to play at their home field - and they win: There will be a movie made. We may just be watching the trailers now. I’m not a big football fan to begin with but the last year (or two) has been a pretty darn good story. My wife and I were talking today about how we haven’t really had a good coach since Bud Grant.  I looked up the coach history for the team and will stand by that.  At least for as much as I know about football.
