      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.

Take all the ink out of somebody's pens. If they have a bunch, do all of them. See how many they go thru until they realize its gone

We once tinfoiled an entire cubical. Everything had tinfoil on it. Then we put shrink wrap around the doorway and filled it full of baloons.

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.

    • I can recall,   farther back than you think, of running into one now and then and finding one inn a trap from time to time. And this was MORE than fifty years ago,  so they've been around a while. Maybe just an uptick in the population in southern MN.
    • For any of you that have ever had a desire to do any sledding in the Black Hills... This is definitely the year to do it. This is by far the most snow that I have seen out there. On most years, you can get lucky to ride either the Northern or Southern hills... This year both are awesome and the meadows are full! I am hoping to get out there once more before the end of the month.
    • Yeah, but somewhere in Iowa there is an imaginary line where the ratio of road kill flips from possums towards coons.   Their fur is pretty thin.   Had one under the deck a few winters ago that would literally shiver as he scavenged bird seed.  Missing a handful of toes, some bits of ear, and the end of his tail was black from frostbite.   About 20 years ago, I plowed my first armadillo in southern Missouri with the car.   Now it's about 50/50 on roadkill whether its a possum or a dillo.   They made their way up from Texas I guess.
    •   They have been hanging in there for the last couple decades in tropical Rochester area.   
    •   Too many variables. Impact strength, airflow setting and wear factors, air pressure variance,  lubrication habits, and of course the operator. It's very easy to exceed what the stick is rated for. Not break the lugs next time tight, but maybe a free brake pulsation 2-3 months down the road after the rotor is distorted and runout turns into thickness variation.  I always use a size smaller with the impact turned all the way down and frequently have less than a 1/8 of a turn left to go. I will even tailor how heavy I pull the trigger and ALWAYS follow up with a torque wrench.     Left hand lugs was an old Mopar trick. Knowing about them does date you!                   
    • Had a 69 Dodge Charger that had left and right hand lug nuts. Was pretty much a Dodge/Chrysler thing
    • Broom and shovel then Shop Vac in the spring if it's real heavy. Or leaf blower to spread out on the yard to break down if lighter. The cardinals are preferring the white millet on the ground right now 3 to 1 where I live. The other feed I am using is sunflower and safflower. 
    • I did that with some stale Christmas almonds, Blue jays found them and took all off them and deposited in the crotches of nearby tree branches. The nuts weren't out long, then they were gone.
    •   You could use your breaker bar now and re-torque while you are at home. 
    • We launched at Normana  and started on the NSST ,,, That wasnt groomed yet so turned around and hit the RR trail to Fish lake ,,, Met the groomer heading east ,,, Gave him some time to do more grooming and had nice smooth ribbon like trail for the trip back    NSST was groomed when we got back to the trailer
