It just seemed funny.

This whole thread is funny.
I imagine they just thought that Talisker's (hi Andy) cool status
display would look good in the photo. It did...

He happens to track some utility version on it.
What I find funny is how much discussion Andy's
choice of information displays (nee NSA) has sparked.

I'm sure the other real uses for that screen are less photogenic.
Unfortunately real network stats and info rarely live
up to holywood glitz standards.

Nice display screen tho...


P.s. I have to remember to leave that screen up on a
display next time I want to impress lay-person visitors 
with high tech smoke and mirrors when they come to 
my office :-)
