      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 .

Mappin network drive in Wndows xp

I'm trying to get my accounting program set up for my business to share on 3 different computers I have around my house.

I can get it to the point where I'm trying to map the drive on a peer-to-peer network, from the host computer, but then it asks me for a username / password. I can't figure out what I should be putting in there.

Any help????

Thanks.

It may be asking you as the administrator for that information, which could be your login name and password.

XP Professional I assume. You have to setup the permissions from the "server" computer, and you have to login as Administrator to start with.

Once mapped and permission setup you can login as user again.

XP Home is much easier, but less secure.

Then logoff and login as administrator, go to control panel then change your user acount proprieties to administrator.

All I do to map drives is lookup computer on My Network Places, then right click on drive (or folder) and choose Map Drive.

Is the password request from Windows or from accounting software ? If it's from acct software you might need to get a multiuser version to run it on 3 computers, which software is it ?

I believe it's a request from Windows, and I say this, because it looks like a windows-window, not my accounting program.

I'm starting to think I may have underlying issues as well.

Whenever I try setting up a new network location, it won't keep what I'm typing in for the network name, it always reverts back to MSHOME.

On my laptop, I can view the workgroup computers, but not on the desktop in my office. It only shows the computer that is in my office (a file icon) and the computer that's in my shop (networked file icon). It doesn't show the laptop at all.

When "view workstation computers" from the laptop, it shows all 3 computers, with the "3 workstation computers icon" in front of the names.

I've got to go haul some firewood in this rain, so I'll have to keep working on it when I get back.

I am going to assume that you already shared the folder the PC in question. In that case right click on my computer and go to manage then to users and groups you can add a user there to share. I am not that familar with windows home, but you should have to assign rights to the folder on the PC that has the shared folder. If that is the case, you will need to logon using the sharing computers name and then the logon and password. Should look something like {computer name}\username. If you just put in a username without the home computer name in there it may not let you logon.

This kind of stuff is one good reason to pony up the extra $$$ and get the Windows XP Pro.

Usually XP Home is fairly easy to share out, I wonder if you have one or possibly even 2 different firewalls running, things like that can drive you nuts..... trust me. Then put access permissions on top of that.

Not a big fan of network like that anyway, other problems can arise because of it. Now days you can get those Network Attached Storage devices, all it is, is a hard drive in a enclosuer with a network port and a web interface to set it up plug it right into your router or network hub and you should be setup shortly. Probably would be the way I would go, could eliminate alot of headaches.

Good luck !

I spent hours when I was setting up my home network trying to figure out why I could only see folders from one PC and not the other. It turned out that with the firewall program I was running it wouldn't allow my other PC in the network in even though I had it explicitly added. mad.gif

If I had the firewalls running (which I do) wouldn't that allow me to see the computers that don't?? Or am I looking at it backwards??

Does the firewall not allow me to access another computer, from the firewalled computer, since that would be bringing info back into this computer?

Wouldn't the firewall not allow me to access this computer with the laptop??

There are several different firewalls you need to be concerned with. 1 is the windows firewall and the other is the Norton/Macaffee style firewall. Try going to start, then run, key in cmd (it should open a commmand window) then key in "ping {computername} this should tell you if the pc that you are trying to access the files from can even see/find the other computer. If it can't, find the sharing computers IP address and then go back to the other PC and key in "ping xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (the IP address of the sharing computer). You can find the IP address by keying in ipconfig at a command prompt. If you can't find it by name but can by IP address you access the share by IP address then share name.

Not sure if you have tried any of this, but if not it is a place to start.

When it asks for your username /password you need to put in

computer name\username

password

This information that you use needs to be an acoount on the machine you are connecting to. Not the one you are connecting from.

Example: Computer name: Beretta

username: LwnmwnMan2

password: beaver

It would look like so: username: Beretta\LwnmwnMan2

password: beaver

if you have any other questions PM me I can help you out. It's what I do.

      I've massaged the trigger finger this summer by shooting the sporting clays league at Rice Creek.  Good way to make sure I got out! Started a little rough as to be expected but got back the groove toward the end.  Finished the summer at a charity shoot with 39/40.  That felt good.

      Through a federal grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ has awarded more than $450,000 in local grants to protect and enhance inland coastal resources. The annual grant program is managed by the Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, which is a voluntary federal-state partnership distributing federal dollars to projects along the inland coast of Lake Superior. This year, grant funding is being awarded to nine projects in the coastal area: Researchers at the University of Minnesota will monitor and analyze measures designed to reduce erosion of bluffs adjacent to North Shore streams. Results will inform guidance on design criteria for future projects. $35,900. The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission will conduct an economic impact assessment of paved trails within the coastal area; determine the number of users of four popular trails (Duluth Lakewalk, Willard Munger State Trail, Gitchi-Gami State Trail, and St. Louis River Trail), and simultaneously conduct large-scale survey of trail-user habits and impacts on coastal economy. $11,500. Laurentian Resource Conservation and Development is planning to host a two-day conference for academia and coastal managers to bridge a gap between research results and practices of watershed assessment, protection and stream restoration. $23,000. Researchers at the University of Minnesota will increase scientific understanding of success rates of coastal forest seeds. Results will inform coastal managers for improved adaptive management and help determination whether coastal trees should be protected and treated as a unique seed collection zone. $98,875. Duluth Children’s Museum in collaboration with Positive Energy Outdoors will create a year round, innovative outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math active learning experience for children, particularly those in low-income households with limited access. $33,100. University of Minnesota Duluth – Natural Resources Research Institute and several partners will develop protocols for assessing the biomass of periphyton (algae attached to rocks) in Duluth area trout streams for use by professional aquatic and citizen scientists. $77,440. City of Duluth will improve public safety and access to the St. Louis River estuary through upgraded wayfinding signage and amenities on the Western Waterfront Trail.  $89,080. Lake County will develop engineering designs and construct trailhead for Lake County Mountain Bike Trail System, a planned 100-plus mile mountain bike trail system. connecting both beginner and advanced cyclists to nature and physical activity in the coastal area. $70,000. City of Carlton will replace an outdoor restroom facility at the Willard Munger trailhead in city of Carlton. The updated structure will meet current sewer requirements and meet compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act. $11,225. For 18 years, the DNR and NOAA have worked together to better Minnesota’s inland coast. Together, the agencies have granted $12.6 million in pass-through funding to more than 550 local projects and provided thousands of hours of technical assistance. Projects are selected for funding through an annual competitive grants process. For more information about Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, visit www.mndnr.gov/mlscp.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.

      I saw this on the Wright County website today: http://www.wrightswcd.org/Water_Mana...e_species.html
      There's a link in Blue on the home page.


      Sounds like they are having a meeting about it on AUG 23. From talking to the DNR, I believe they didn't allow the initial dates for this to happen. Mostly because there was really no comment period on it. Sounds like they are gonna have it now. Guess if your against it, now's your chance to speak up. You can also send in written comments. Not sure exactly to who, at least I didn't see that part clearly. Maybe to Alicia O'Hare.


      Like others have said, I believe their ultimate goal is to have this implemented county wide at some point. When you look at the committee info, most groups are lake associations. Hopefully it still can be stopped. Here is the DNR person I called on this, she was helpful: Heidi Wolf - 651-259-5152

      Anyone else have new info on this?

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.
