The past few weeks have been whirlwinds: late nights with engineers, software downloads, cable swaps, and last-minute orders for critical components. We're finally installed now, so I look forward to 10-20 years of "problem-free" operation (Note: Insert audience laugh track / rim-shot here).

Here's two pictures, one from a Thermo guidebook, the other courtesy of Agilent. Note the lack of goggles, or attention to what's actually going on - one scientist pipets without looking, while the other seems to be mashing the "." key on the LC Gameboy.
Not that either 'researcher' really notices...as far as I can tell, their instruments aren't even on! The LEDs that show system activity aren't lit, and the solvent hoses don't seem to be hooked up. Perhaps too much scientific content ruins the photo shoot.
