At work I spend most of my time looking at a computer screen. At home I also spend most of my time looking at a computer screen. Basically: I spend a lot of time looking at a computer screen. Recently I’ve been looking for ways to make this as pleasant as possible. So far I’ve come up with the following:
- I’ve installed bias lighting after reading this.
- From the same article I found out Windows 7 has a built-in screen setup procedure in the media center app (it turns out LCD factory settings are on “eye scorching brightness”).
- Work in progress: getting a new set of hi-res screens at work. See point 9 on The Joel Test.
- Changing my monospace font to one in this top 10 list. Courier New is apparently almost as bad as Comic Sans.
In the next few months there will be more changes to my setup, most likely. First up would be a second LCD, although I can’t seem to decide if I want the exact same monitor twice, or perhaps a different one next to my HD one. Either way, so far these changes were more than welcome: can’t imagine how I got along without them.
Interested? Go for it! Show your eyes some love!
