      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 .

For about a month now, I'll head down to my office (downstairs) to the computer that I have set up for the server for my network.

Once / week or so, I'll get the message in the subject line.

I'll press enter, and everything works as normal. If not, I'll reset the power, and I get another message with a "warning" flashing next to it.

The first 3 letters aren't on the screen for the first word, but the last are RT then "failure predicted on Primary Master : Maxtor blah blah blah.....

Now, I know that the Maxtor is my hard drive.

The question that I have, and I've run both my Norton scan and Ad-Aware scans, both are saying the computer is clean, but I should probably be putting a new hard drive in?? Or is there another solution here that I don't know??

I would get it backed up & replaced asap. You can try running CHKDSK to repair the bad clusters, but once they're bad usually more are soon to follow.

"Smart failure predicted on primary master. WARNING: Immediately back-up your data and replace your hard disk drive. A failure may be imminent"

Smart reporting of errors is deliberately "dumbed down" so as to not make any particular manufacturer's drive look bad (minor errors are not reported), so when you DO get reports of errors, it almost always means you hard drive IS starting to fail.

You can turn off Smart reporting in most bioses, but that doesn't make the problem go away - the errors are still being recorded on the hard drive. The whole purpose of Smart is to give you some time to rescue what data you can befire the drive fails completely.

yep, looks like your HDD is about to go. Back up everything you don't want vaporized ASAP.

Good Luck
