Re: Hackos, calibration
3. Perceived hues change dramatically under different lighting conditions.
Quite true. For example, a pair of slacks that might have looked green under the closet light turns out to be rather blue under the office lights. As today marks the autumnal equinox this "got dressed in the dark" phenomenon looms as a growing threat to those of us who are not telecommuters.

While I'm not much of a scotch drinker, I've noticed that the appearance of the editing can vary according to the lightness or darkness of the microbrew I'm having. (It is possible that the famous "brown ring of quality" corporate logo may have been designed under similar circumstances.) The darker brews also increase the difficulty of distinguishing items of clothing, as noted above, so when making arrangements for collaborative team get-togethers, it might be advisible to drop the requirement that everyone leave the meeting with the same clothes they had at the beginning.
