Introductions, Rules, Announcements, and Feedback
When I'm working, I usually view APOD there. I'm unemployed right now, so I view it at home. I read an article yesterday that said 700 people had applied for a single job. I'm one of those people, and I'm right in the middle of my career. I'm getting beat by more experienced people, and I shouldn't have to work for peanuts like an intern. Go figure.
Open my day with APOD - and use images that work for hand-made greeting cards. E.g. the Iris Nebula photo recently decorated a birthday greeting to - of course, Iris. Probably owe my view of astronomy as art to the Chesley Bonestell paintings in NY's Hayden Planetarium when I was a child in the 1940s.
I LOVE my Android app from APOD that changes my wallpaper each day. That's where I usually see the APOD, but sometimes I need to see it on a bigger screen, so that's when I pull it up at work. I have the APOD website RSS displayed on my bookmark bar (using IE8), so it's real quick to deploy. Thanks for your service, my family appreciates all the beautiful pictures of God's creation!
Home and workplace are the same. APOD is hands-down my favorite site for a refreshing, nonstupid break. It's a beautiful thing that enriches the days. That new images go up seven days a week is a special lagniappe, since I work 14 to 18 hours a day, seven days a week. Some may think of it as "gee-whiz science," but...we all need a little gee whiz in our lives.

APOD is the first thing I see when I turn on my computer. The pictures usually are literally "Out-of-the-World" and I'm grateful that NASA maintains this site. Thank you. Since sitting through numerous showings of the IMAX movie "Hubble" (I volunteer at a science center) I am particular fond of anything that has to do with the HST.
