Wallpaper coordination

At work, I have two machines connected by a KVM (keyboard / video / mouse) switch. When I started, I sometimes found it a bit disorienting trying to remember which computer I was working on, so I decided that my FrontPage development machine would have red wallpaper, and my everything-else machine would have blue wallpaper. I've since extended this scheme to mean that warm colors mean FrontPage and cool colors mean everything-else, but I've stuck with it very consistently over the past year. That should tell you something about me.

You have the hots for Frontpage?

Actually, there was a reasoning behind which colors went where. I associate red and black with "bad" and blue, green, white, and yellow with "good." Since the FrontPage machine is where I do most of my real work and the other machine is where I respond to email, write documentation, surf the web, and use instant messenger, the work machine is the "bad" one, so it got the "bad" primary color, red.

I think I'll stick with thinking you have the hots for Frontpage :-)
