That's Amy cat. Amy was named after the given name of a TFette (Auspicious) who died of an aneurysm between when the cat showed up in our yard and consented to be adopted. The human Amy was an advocate for getting stray cats adopted so naming the cat after her was a no brainer.

Somewhere outside of Skull Valley, AZ.

A place I spent a lot of time at in my childhood. There used to be a bluff there, with an oak tree on it. My dad would park his truck under the tree and we'd spend all day reading books, and hiking through the surrounding area.

ZMugg: khatores: ZMugg: wxboy: ZMugg: How do you embed your wallpaper here?

For me, I just used the source image as an image upload button near the right end of the add-comment box (next to the hyperlink buttons).

I tried that. My phone is complete crap (Alcatel One Touch, if you want to know what to avoid). When I tap on "image upload", I get the letter "T" in the comment box, or no response at all. For every letter I get correct, there are three that I have to backspace over. Here is the source image cropped to how it looks on the phone:
[Fark user image 267x367]
To paraphrase the great philosopher Bullwinkle J Moose: "No doubt about it, I gotta get another phone".

1) Create a new screen just as if you're going to drop some new icons in. On a Samsung, that's a long press on the screen (not on any icons), scroll all the way to the right and then hit the giant plus sign. This will allow you to take a clean shot of the background photo without many icons in the way.

2) Take a screenshot using the phone's buttons. This depends on the phone. This way, you should get an exact image of what you see on your phone.

3) Use a photo editor to scale it down to a usable size and then save it. Upload to Fark.

None of that worked.
Like I said, crap phone.


Sounds pretty bad. My philosophy on phones (and most things actually) is that if you're on a budget, a quality option with miles is better than new junk.
I have a Samsung Note 5 which is about 5 years old now and it still works. The battery isn't what it used to be but otherwise I have no complaints. I'm planning to get the battery changed soon. It should be hopelessly obsolete, but it still works great. You can get one of these for about $130 on Amazon and it should serve well for years to come. My main phone is a Note 8 which was only $300 - and it also works great.


My first touchscreen smartphone was a Note 3, which unfortunately got immersed in water - twice - and came back from the dead both times and went on to work like nothing happened (after drying out). Long before that, I had a Motorola flip phone (back when flip phones were normal) which I dropped onto a tile floor and the antenna broke off. I superglued it back together and it continued to work until I finally got a Blackberry.

My first laptop in college was a twice-used IBM Thinkpad. It wasn't as new as other options, but it was built like a tank. Unfortunately someone had dropped it a few times before, so when I got it, it had structural damage but I ran it until the monitor literally fell apart. It would have kept going otherwise.

Anyway, incidents like that sold me on the idea - you can never go wrong with quality, even if comes with some depreciation.

If you ever do go, do the night tour and pay extra for the concierge tour to the upper observation deck.

You skip all the lines, get a private elevator to the 143rd floor, and complimentary tea and snacks.

The view is incredible.
