Everyone I know who has tried this program loves it. It is small and free. It adjusts your computer's display so that it's not blasting your eyes at night. When you try it, things will look a little weird at first. Then, you'll turn it off after a while and scream OH GOD NO and turn it back on, because you got used to having relaxed and happy eyes while computing in the evening.

There's a linux version now as well.

Wow.

I totally just read the words "osteoporosis" and "fux" into that URL.

Re: Wow.

That's an especially unattractive fetish.

I started using this a couple of weeks ago on your recommendation and it is indeed great. Thanks!

That looks like a really cool app. I've already downloaded it, and I love how it has an option of being turned off for doing color work. I'm pretty psyched! Thanks!

Yes, a linux version! I am definitely putting this on the laptop at home.

I can't tell what it's doing. Maybe this evening.

It doesn't, in this linux version, have, like, options and things. It's 'on' or 'off'.

I tried it and didn't like it. It just made me grumpy.

Thanks for this. I've installed it on both home and work computers; in the winter I'm often at work after sunset.

Maybe it would work for you if you mixed it with Mötorhead or quesadillas! It's all in the mix.

I like it, too. My only beef is that during the transition it really slows my computer down. The mouse goes into slow-mo. And one time videos and stuff seemed slower, and it wasn't during any transition. I have a macbook pro, and it doesn't seem like it should chug so much during the tranny.
