  1. What a gorgeous, serene view. It must be pretty all year. Maybe you could send CJ another picture when the leaves begin to bud, Anonymous from Seoul?

  2. It is a well-done photograph. The blue monitor screen contrasts nicely with the gray landscape.

    If this is an academic lab, I would suggest that computers used by grad students and postdocs have a screen saver consisting of a photo of Psy pointing and scowling from the music video of Gangnam Style and the words "Stop daydreaming and get back to work!"

  3. thanks guys. And cheers to CJ for posting the pic!

    if chemjobber is up for it I'll send in another photograph when leaves do bud

    our lab has a strict default samsung background picture policy- I happened to witness one of the students being admonished for changing the background from Samsung to a scanned picture of her hand.
