Bloody red

Fred wrote something interesting:


Red means danger, in traffic lights and brake lights. Animals use red to issue warnings and announce their mating season. Red is used to provoke erotic feelings. Red is the color of your blood. Most of all, red means STOP or ERROR.

One example of bad use of the red color is seen in Replicon Web TimeSheet:


The fist impulse we get when we see this is "there's something wrong with those weeks". As a matter of fact that red only means "this week is already filled in".

  2. Specially if it is a "Quinta do Cabriz" red wine, you can bet it is... But red wine's colour isn't red, or at least it isn't "bloody red"! ;-)

    Yes - we use DOVICO Timesheet (www.dovico.com), better time management product and less expensive to buy.
