Computer screens are bright.

To be more specific - computer screens use so-called blue light. During the day, this doesn't really matter. Screens are made to shine in a manner reminiscent of the sun.

When it's dark around you, you shouldn't be looking at the sun, though.

That's where f.lux comes in. It automagically adjusts the colour temperature of your screen based on the time of day, so that it will instead use warmer, yellow light when the sun is down.

This legitimately makes the screen much more comfortable to look at during the late hours, and is a thing that is beneficial for your sleep if you go to bed right after being at your computer, which is something that I assume many of us do. I've been using it for quite a while, and it really is a help. I can't say for sure that it's made me sleep better, but it probably has and I just don't notice or remember. It definitely makes using the computer after sundown much less of a strain on the eyes, which can only be a good thing.

So just get f.lux.

I'm straight, and I don't like insinuations that I'm not straight. It's easy to say "not that there's anything wrong with that", but for me, I'm straight, so there is something wrong with me being gay, that being that I'm not gay. I'm proud of being straight and the idea of being gay goes against my biological wiring.

I heard of this long ago but never got around to giving it a try and forgot about it.

So sure, I'll give it a shot.

Same here, and I imagine I could actually use something like this.
