Makes a difference, indeed.

F.lux - makes the color of your computer's display adapt to the time of day

Ever notice how people texting at night have that eerie blue glow?

Or wake up ready to write down the Next Great Idea, and get blinded by your computer screen?

During the day, computer screens look good—they're designed to look like the sun. But, at 9PM, 10PM, or 3AM, you probably shouldn't be looking at the sun.

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.

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



f.lux makes your computer screen look like the room you're in, all the time. When the sun sets, it makes your computer look like your indoor lights. In the morning, it makes things look like sunlight again.

Tell f.lux what kind of lighting you have, and where you live. Then forget about it. F.lux will do the rest, automatically.

If you're outside the US, you can use Wikipedia to find your latitude (enter the nearest major city):
You have to go to the flux site to see the input box

I'm using a CRT.
And when i click on the graph it says that it simulates a whole day.
I even see the color temparature displayed by the program change, but the screen as a whole does nothing.

Maybe i have to try it really at night.

:cheers:
