    For those late-night chat sessions where your eyes are burning it would be great to have a dark theme (just need to find a way to change black text into white):

    I'll pay you $15 to make it happen Diablo :p

    Actually, that is a good idea. :hmmm: Maybe not pitch black, but a darker colour would definitely be nice.

    How about a "Lights Off" button like YT has/used to have. :p

    Nice idea, but a color that is lighter than black would be better. :D

    I'll look into a toggle option or a selectable option for this before the end of 2014.

    What do you mean 'actually'? :toetap:

    The pay-rate drops $2 each month it takes you, so by then you'd be owing me :p

    There should be a selectable darkish theme for the whole board, that way we could actually read all those old posts without ctrl+A ;D

    Cactus' Flux software suggestion has actually made an awesome difference to late night PC usage!
    Takes about a week to get used to the colour-change but if you're using the PC every night and not doing colour work (web, photoshop, video editing, etc) it really is amazing - and it'll help you get to sleep quicker too. Really does take the sting out of the bright white areas of the screen.

    I don't necessarily see the need to have this, I just turn down the brightness on my phone/laptop in this kinda situation.

    Is that this one? f.lux: software to make your life better

    Brilliant piece of software. I've been using it for over a year now and never get a headache no matter how long I spend looking at a TV/monitor. Used to get tired eyes and headaches before I used this. But I do have it set to a max of 4000K during the day and about 2500K at night with it gradually increasing/decreasing on its own depending on the time of day and year.
