Wow. In honour of my new monitor which makes everything seem so crisp and fresh and bright, here's a link to an amazing big picture of Mars. To give you an idea of how dark my monitor was, I'm surprised to see that the War on Guns blog has a background pattern to the page; I thought it was just black. There has been a lot of oohing and aahing today as we discover how things are supposed to look on my PC.
By the way, did I mention that it was a big picture?
