POD: My Work Desktop


Today we have a picture of my desk at the office. To be fair I had a bit of an explosion of screens today. My work computer is the middle to monitors, on the left is the laptop I’ve been using to test Windows 10, and on the right is my nieces broken laptop I had brought to the office recover some of her files.
