Changed to this at work, though I might use it at home instead.

Well, it's from my home computer, which I mostly use for entertainment purposes. If it was a work computer, then I would definitely get no work done.

^ That's a really cool pic, CaptMurdock. Is it from anything in particular, or just someone's art?

I've had this up for a while now:

Not just art. That was a depiction of the Tektite undersea habitat and laboratory, from about 40 years ago.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tektite_habitat

I think that illustration may have appeared in National Geographic magazine at around that time.

Ha, found it: http://www.nationalgeographicstock.c...s=SE&id=619783
