Use wallpaper to ID your systems

To keep track of all his servers, searchWin2000 member Bob Fuller creates bitmaps with their names. No more guess work.

My company's racks may have up to 20 servers inside, all controlled by a single KVM switch. I create bitmaps with the names of the servers and then use these .BMPs as wallpaper. Now, I never guess which server I'm on.
