Ever worked late into the night on your
computer and found yourself blinded by the light from the monitor? Yes,
all of us have experienced it at some point or another. So what do you
do then? Get down and dirty and adjust the screen’s brightness to be a
little easy on the eyes, only to find it ineffectiveand then find
yourself adjusting it again the next morning? There’s definitely got to
be a better way to automate this. And surely there is– “F.lux“.

- F.lux fixes this: it makes the color of
your computer's display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like
sunlight during the day.Cool

 

- It's even possible that you're staying up too late because of
yourcomputer. You could use f.lux because it makes you sleep betterLaugh, or
you could just use it just because it makes your computer look better.Smile

 Hum… So I guess F.lux (weird name) will be constantly running in the background.

Idea: not bad at all.

Question: Is it a resource hog?

I'll give it try when I get home and find out. (If no one else beats me to it.)

i have tried it and its a fairly small program. there will be a small icon in the system tray and you can customize it to where you live.

@PC BASIC

This is another great concept SW. Sometime my eyes get so tired, especially at night, I had given up on doing any serious PCing except during daytime hours.

Thanks for another great nugget.

I have been using F lux for over a year now and it really does help your eyes at night.  It is not a resource hog,  uses about 500k memory and lest than .05% cpu.

The name will probably make more sense when you realise that "Lux" is a measurement of Luminousity, or in other words, Light Intensity…

FluxBox is a minimalist window manager for unix.  It is a fork of the BlackBox source.  I prefer BlackBox, though.
