      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 .

Not sure what kind you're looking for, but the Google suite is nice. It has all the Google tools such as maps (GPS), Gmail, RSS reader, and the search tool of course. Google Maps is much better than the map app that comes standard with the BB. I have Sprint so GPS is enabled, but this may not be the case if you are on a different carrier. You could still use the maps if your BB doesn't have GPS enabled, but it won't track your current location of course.

Viigo is a good one for RSS feeds.

Bolt is a new browser for BB's. Does a nice job on rendering web pages as you'd view them on your desktop. It's fairly new though and they are working out the kinks yet. It's nice for viewing this HSOforum.

Weatherbug is nice. Puts an icon on the "home screen" with the temperature. It also will flash red and the LED will blink if a weather alert is issued by the National Weather Service. Clicking on the icon will open up the browser to the Weatherbug HSOforum which will show what the weather alert is.

There are many, many apps out there for BB's and it just depends on what you're looking for. Those I mentioned above are free, BTW.

Slacker radio - Portable radio

Opera Mini - Browser thats way faster and better than the BB one in my opinion.

Weatherbug - Weather

CaptureIT - Screenshots of your BB

CB - CaptureIT is like a PrintScreen on your PC. So you click the BB menu button on any screen and it saves the pic so you can forward, email, text etc. the image as you would on a PC.

B-N-S. Slacker radio requires the internet cause it's streaming music hence the need for the net. Most of these other apps you can download them to your PC and then install them using your BB Desktop Manager > Adding Applications.

Cool Games?

I've got Guitar Hero World Tour on my BB Storm. That sucker is addicting.

Just got Yahtzee for the Storm as well and that is, well... Yahtzee. Pretty cool though!

The Crackberry HSOforum is a good place to find apps.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
