    2 questions....1 thread:
    1. My screensaver seems to have a mind of its own. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I've tried resetting the delay time but it still happens. Any suggestions?
    2. Sometimes the text gets clipped like it's running together when I'm visiting different websites. This occurs when text is in a verticle column with one article on top of another. It happens on multiple websites. Any suggestions?
