What's up with just using the dimmer switch(s) on your keyboard to adjust how bright your screen is ????
Quote from the MakeUseOf article on RedShift:-
"If you spend a lot of time looking at your computer – and if you read this blog I’m betting you do – you might notice that after a while your eyes start to hurt, and that you have trouble going to sleep at night. There’s a good reason for this: your computer screen is essentially a lightbulb, and you’re looking straight into it for hours at a time.
It’s for this reason that devices like the Kindle and the Nook are fast gaining popularity. Rather than utilizing the backlit screens we know from computers and cell phones, these devices mimic paper. The result is easier to read in the sun, and is in general easier on the eyes than a screen."
It's not so much about 'brightness', per se, Gary; it's more to do with the quality & nature of that brightness, and how it affects not only your eyes, but that part of your brain that integrates with your 'sleep center'.
I do know this much; by using RedShift, my eyes get a lot less 'achy' and sore at night.....and I definitely sleep better when I shut down for the night.
