Facebook Relationship Status: Netflix & Weed

And everything was good until he realized Netflix was actually stalking him through his Samsung Smart TV…
My first spliff wasn’t particularly memorable; smoking weed just became a thing I did with my friends around the age of 16. And by “a thing,” I don’t mean a passing fad or an occasional pastime; it was all I did. Every day after school, we’d either sit in the park—or climb a tree in Hampstead Heath, if we were feeling especially motivated—and get high. We would even go to my place and watch netflix and smoke- kinda like in That 70s Show- and just hang. It was until recently that I started reading Midas Letter Cannabis Stock and learning more about the plant itself. Either way, I’m sure many of you have similar memories.

Sometimes we smoked soap bar and ended up with hot-rock holes in our clothes; sometimes we smoked bush weed—and a lot of it, because it was full of seeds and wouldn’t get you lean if you didn’t. But mainly it was skunk, the one your parents tell you is much stronger than the stuff they had in their day. Which, in fairness to your parents, is accurate: It’s about five times more potent than that brown Thai stick stuff you get wrapped up in red string.

Fix: Samsung SPH-A920 / MM-A920 Fullscreen Backgrounds

     From what I’ve seen, this is the only page on the Internet that actually answers this rather popular question, and it’s out there on the ‘net about a million times…

     “How do I get my screensaver to take up the full screen on the A920?”

     If you have a miniSD card with a converter, you can easily size your background image to the perfect resolution of 176×220 (the screen’s natural resolution) on your computer, pop the card in the phone, select the image, assign it as a screensaver and that should make ’em full screen, right?
     Oh, hell no.  It’s much more convoluted.  You’ll end up with white bars at the top and bottom of the screen, and the vertical res cropped, thus destroying your picture and making your phone’s desktop look like total crap.

     The fix is easy, although convoluted.

     Hit the “Camera” button, then hit “7” for “Settings & Info.”  Select “3” for “View Mode” and set it to “Portrait.”  The phone will probably power off at that point, but when it comes back up, the white menu bars at the top and bottom are gone.

     I have no idea why the hell they’d drop it under Camera Settings…

     And, the fact that it crops photos in landscape mode when the vertical size is bloody well larger that the horizontal size is beyond me.

     And, why they insist on calling a background image a screen saver is totally messed up…

     It’s no friggin’ wonder everyone keeps calling their XP background a “screen saver” these days.  *shakes head*

     Quirky, at best.  And for sure, it should be filed under “annoying stuff to piss people off.”
