      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 .

My wife bought me a 30 gig I-pod as a birthday gift earlier this year...and I love it. My question is this: Is it possible to some how download the DVDs that I already own onto the I-pod?...much like I have done with my cd collection. Thanks for any help.

Cliffy.

Yes, you need software to convert the DVD to a digital movie format that's supported on the ipod, like mp4 (mpeg-4).

As far as software, I don't really have anything to recommend because I don't do it myself. Google "DVD to mp4 conversion software" or something like that and you get millions of hits. Most of them are shareware, which means you get to download it and try it for free, but some of the features wont work or you can only use it for a limited amount of time before purchasing it. You may be able to find a free one if you look hard enough. You can try out a few different ones and see which one works the best before you buy it.

Keep in mind that an average movie will be about 800mb - 1GB... they take up a lot of space. With the 30gig ipod, you should be able to fit quite a few movies and still have room for all your music though.

Do a google for "handbrake". It cracks the video, and will leave it in MP4. Save to desktop, and then move to Itunes.

Technically, it's Piracy, but I'd argue that you're not doing it for profit, you are only doing it to the movies you own, and are just trying to have it in a format that you can watch on a device that you also own.

I've used Handbrake. It ran really slow on my old Mac and I haven't tried it on the new one yet.

There has been random issues with the iPod recognizing and syncing the movies.

I've recently downloaded Streamclip and iSquint but I haven't tried them yet.

There is a conversion script within Quicktime but I haven't used that yet.

Popcorn 3.0 from Roxio does a very good job of converting DVD media to mp4, divx, or h.264. I think it costs $30 now.

I bought a 30G video i pod over a year ago. I have downloaded over 20 movies and over 1200 songs, and still have plenty of space left. I went on the i pod website and looked around at their forum's. What I found, is that I needed 2 pieces of free (at the time) software. "Videora Converter" and "DVD Decrypter". It took me a while to get the hang of it, but there was easy step by step instructions that came with it.

This is so crazy. I downloaded the software you mentioned but I just can get the Videora Converter to work. I had no problems ripping the DVD...just cant get videora to work propery. I have been using the normal mode.... Its like I am missing something....the screens dont looks just like those in the directions...I am missing buttons..etc. Any suggestions?

Do a search for howto.diveintomark, you can print out the screens for using Handbrake. They don't match the screens on the version that I used, but the results were the same.

I think there has to be a problem with my computer.....I just cant get it to work. I tried the handbrake software and couldnt get it to go...I just cant figure out the Videora converter....I downloaded the directions and my screens dont look like the ones in the directions...very close but missing certain buttons to get things started.

I think its my computer because I have noticed that certain websites I visit will be missing certian buttons to use certain functions....I have no problems with these same websites when I use a computer at work or a friends computer. What he heck is going on?

For what it's worth, I've had a 30 gig Ipod for two years. I got the software from the internet, and put about 20 movies on it. Honestly, I can't say that it was ever worth the work. Put songs on, put pictures on, and if you are set on having movies on there, buy them from the Itunes store. There, you get great quality and all the work is done. Just my two cents, and good luck!

You can also just use quicktime that comes with iTunes. There is an option to rip or save to ipod. I think you may need quicktime pro, maybe.

Anyway, there are tons of guides out there on the internets.

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe

      There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.
