      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 .

I-pod to computer

Recommended Posts

My son has bought around 100 songs through I-tunes and put about 100 songs from his existing cd's onto his ipod with my computer. I have a new computer and I have heard if he plugs his ipod to put more songs onto it with a different computer his songs he put on before will be deleted. Just wondering if that is true before he loses all of his songs.

Thanks

Rick

I'd like to hear the answer to this as well.

What'll happen is that if you enable syncing in the iTunes software, the iPod will sync to an empty folder on your PC and wipe the songs you have on the iPod when you connect it. I've never sync'd to my PC and now my iPod is chuck full of songs and wondering what to do myself. I'd like to have a back-up in the event something goes haywire with my iPod.

I've done some very brief searching on the internet about this and it sounds like there is some 3rd party software that will transfer the songs to the PC but it may not be as clean as you'd hope it would be with lost song tags, mixed up playlists, etc.

I look forward to hearing what anyone else has for ideas if they've done this before.

The iTunes songs will be safe - your computer will ask you if you want to transfer them over. The other ones will be wiped.

You can transfer your tunes from one computer to another via back up HD or firewire transfer. Google for the exact information - but it works, you can point iTunes from a new computer to recognize your transferred material.

They really make it hard to transfer non-iTunes material - go figure, huh?

LIke I said, transfer them from one computer to another via firewire - you can even move the entire folder over to the other computer and have iTunes recognize it. Outside of that - I don't know...

I Have used software from a online web site to transfer my i-pod to another computer. Pretty simple, it takes you through the process step by step. if I remember after the software down load, the computer takes over the process and all you do is click the continue or finish icons.. I think it cost around $15-20

Did all of your playlists come through un-altered? Maybe it's the free software where the problems come into play that I read about. Do you recall the name of the software by chance? Thanks.

I did some reserch before I decided on witch one to use and Tune- Jack had the best reviews. I think I went to a site called purple ghost. very good online help and trustworthy, IMO .itunes store does give directions on how to do this, but they assume you are tec savy and do not explain every step. And Yes everything transferred just fine.

OK I am not too familiar with the Ipods, but if you can plug it in and browse folders you should be able to copy files back and forth with ease. I have done it with other MP3 players and Windows CE devices. Just not sure if can just plain browse folders on ipdods.

Found a few things on the web:

Backup software - Folder is a freeware program that allows you to perform a full backup of your iPod.

Another backup tool - Free iPod software - help you copy music and video from iPod to computer.

Aimersoft iPod Copy Manager is totally free and easy to use iPod backup & recovery software. With the free iPod copy manager, you can easily copy back your songs, videos and DVD movies from iPod to computer when you lost your iTunes library. You also can backup your iPod videos and music to computer whether you need to send your iPod for repair or system crashed.

For the iTunes frustrated user, iPod copy manager can help you transfer video, songs, movies and TV shows to iPod directly. Just plug in your iPod to computer and one click is enough; it couldn’t be easier to copy music and video to iPod.

Copy from ipod to pc - A reader points out a straightforward way for Windows users to transfer music from an iPod to your hard drive, without extra software:

1. Connect the iPod to your PC. If iTunes starts syncing (ie erasing) your music automatically, hit the X in the upper right hand corner of iTunes display, to the left of the search box, to stop it.

2. In Control Panel, Portable Media Devices, double-click your iPod.

3. In the Tools menu -> Options, in the View Tab, check "Show hidden files and folders."

4. Navigate to the Music folder. On my 2nd gen 'pod, the full path is

Portable Media Devices\GINA'S IPOD (F:)\iPod_Control\Music

5. Select all the music folders, and drag and drop them into a folder on your hard drive, or directly into iTunes.

And you're done! The iPod music folder structure is strange and inexplicable, but once you move your files into iTunes you can set it to automatically organize your folder by artist and album to clean that up. (To do this, in iTunes Edit menu, choose Preferences and in the Advanced tab, check "Keep iTunes Music Folder organized.")

Check out anapod by redchair software. It is not the best stuff best it works. I have over 10,000 songs on mine and did not like how easy it is to wipe it out and not have the ability to backup all my songs to one folder. This stuff will not care were the song came from or if it has been licensed.

Yes, that's what Apple wants you to believe, but there are ways of moving your ipod's database to other computers. I'm just looking for the best way that'll preserve all the playlists, etc. I just did some searching around and it's still sketchy which ones will do that perfectly. Many will copy the songs, but the playlist issue is questionable on many of the software packages out there.

I have thousands of mp3's, hundreds of CD's ripped, and a handful of iTunes songs on my iPod. I created a playlist/folder for each of my ripped CD's to keep them separate which make them appear as individual albums. This is the most critical part of getting this transfer to work for me.

It seems like they all have trial versions with a limited amount of songs that can be copied. Tough call on which one to get.

I just installed the demo for IPod Copy Expert and realized I can only copy 5 songs.... I'll pass on the $20 for now as all of my music is backed up...it did copy all 5 songs successfully... grin

DIdn't read through all the posts, but I just installed Ipod access and it is the best program I have found for sharing/backing up. It copied all my songs and playlists.

    • This furnace has 2 pipes. The larger pipe about 4" is the air intake is supported through ring #29. The smaller pipe inside the larger pipe about 2" is the furnace exhaust connected through the larger ring #30 and screwed to the raised portion of ring #29. My furnace a vintage Hydro Flame Convection with dual direct vent, needed no power, and used a pilot light. Had the identical 2 pipe direct vent as yours. I built 2 rings similar to your drawing. Had 2 major issues: 1. Anytime the wind exceeded 20 mph, my pilot light would blow out even when the furnace side of my house was parked to the leeward side due to wind eddies.  2. At the exhaust cap which was about 1 3/4" from the side of the house would scorch the side surface above the cap and the moisture from burning Propane (1/2 pt. per 10#) would freeze on and below the exhaust when temp went -10 or below. Second year I re-designed using the Pipe Cap photo 1 from Menards for under $10. I cut off the bottom half at the black line and cut a hole on the outside flat surface for the exhaust pipe. This was my fresh air intake. Also filled the inside of the cap with a disassembled expanded metal filter from a motor home stove top exhaust filter.  Photo 1   Secured it to my house and ran the exhaust pipe through the hole in the end. Attached the exhaust pipe to a 2" x 3" aluminum gutter down spout used as a chimney. Photos 2 and 3. Totally solved my issues. You may also find a similar cap to photo 1 for the exhaust instead of the pipe. Most of the caps I was able to find had a 4" connection point so you would need to modify to 2" or whatever size you exhaust pipe is. How ever you do it, cover all openings with a screen to keep the Mud-daubers out as they love burned propane orifice area to build there nest.  Photo 2 & 3
    • sure looks like YHBB.  open fields and swamps close by? They like to hang out where the RWBB do.  Cannon SX30IS is pretty cheap online. 35 power zoom. good for still shots.   
    • Going to bait tomorrow with fryer grease, bread, dog food, cherry frosting, peanut butter, soft candies, raw white sugar, and popcorn. I am throwing everything at them tomorrow, hopefully the bears like the variety!
    • I don't know about that but I will certainly not write him off, if he can be a steady vet I will be happy. 
    • That's a great chicken recipe duff, but that steak n corn get my vote!! 
    • I was gonna say my yard has been thick with juvenile birds the last few days, always harder to ID birds this time of year. Had an albino something or other with a flock of birds, not sure I've seen an albino bird before. And just had a sharp shinned hawk hanging out on the branch above the feeders.  But I feed ALL of the birds......love them raptors. I will say the cowbirds around sure tolerate the dog or I getting pretty close to them.    
    • Had a decent trip.  We fished the evening of Aug. 9-Aug. 15.  Had 2 pretty good days, 2 bad days, and the rest were just so-so.  Dad, Uncle, and Grandpa don't like getting up early anymore so we usually outdrink the fish at night and sleep in mornings.   We have slowly been learning how to consistently catch fish on this lake.  The local guys don't provide any information and neither do the guys that have been making the trip for 20+ years.  Can't say I blame them much, but would have shortened the learning curve for us a little bit.  We found a bay a few years back that we can catch 10-16" walleye all day in, just a shallow weedy bay pulling spinners.  Usually get enough eyes' for dinner and then go search the reefs, shorelines, and islands for bigger fish.   I think we finally dialed in on some bottom bouncers and have 2-3 spots were we can go and most likely catch fish with the chance at some big ones.  1oz to 1-1/2oz BB with leeches or worms work the best on these spots.  2 spots are reefs topping out at 9-10fow and the other spot is a little flatter, with access to some shallow weeds.  We also deep troll suspended fish some evenings and don't catch a lot, but the ones we do are bigger fish.  We found iwe caught more fish when we were running and gunning.  Fish a spot for 20-30 minutes and then move on until we found some fish.  This kind of stinks for Grandpa but he understands we can't catch them if they are there and active. Biggest of the week was 26 1/4" walleye with 20-25 eyes' over 20".  I think I had 2 -25" and also a 37" pike the last evening.  Really fun time and scenery with the family.  Looking forward to next year and searching more of the lake.
    • Not a cowbird. We have several around here and they are generally dark-black grey and brown. The pictured bird almost looks as though it could be an immature yellow headed blackbird. Cowbirds are quite reclusive and we have been surprised they come out to our feeders, but they have become pretty regular customers. Like the deer that graze in the front yard. Last night we had the buck, doe and twin fawns and even though we talked softly to them they did not spook,  but seemed to simply acknowledge our presence on the deck and continued to feed. And of course, as usual, the black squirrels are gathering all MY walnuts!  darn.....I just can't win. The chipmunks eat my strawberries, deer eat tomato plants and squirrels eat my walnuts. I'm left with this old bottle of Beefeaters, a small bottle of vermouth and a few olives in a jar.  Things are tough out here in the wilderness.
