Colours for SQL Management Studio Status Bar

An old colleague got me hooked on Management Studio status bar colours which are cool visual clues to remind you which instance you are working in.   Despite their attractiveness and usefulness, I have rarely seen this feature used.  Go to your Object explorer and select Connect, then on the Connection window select the Options button to get started.  Sadly only works for database connections, not SSAS etc, however still a good feature.

An excellent write up here …
