    Oh, it's been nearly a 8 years since the last post, damn.

    Usually I just read manga when I can't fall asleep, taking sleeping pills is indeed a bad idea, but Melatonin pills seem to be much safer and considered "natural"

    And yea, those blue light filters, both for PC (F.lux) and Android (Twilight) are life-saving. Honestly, I haven't seen any difference first week or two, reading in bed at night with blue light filter , but after a month or so I realized that I'm falling asleep much faster and my eyes are feeling relaxed, didn't expect that from a single software at all

    I didn't pay Nobody's comment about f.lux much attention at the time, since computer usage was not the reason (or the reason for the reason) I created this thread. But now I can't recommend color temperature filters hard enough. Awareness of this problem has increased over the last years, to the point Windows 10 has a f.lux-like feature built in, as do some MediaTek-based phones.

    I've had my redshift permanently set to 2300K (as opposed to during nighttime only) for months now and I'm the happiest I've ever been

    So do I understand this right. This software changes your monitor colors, when it's dark, but during day it remains the same?

    I choose "reduce eyestrain" and the number is on 5900k

    Am using the windows 10 one and love it. It has a sheduler as well. Same with f.lux btw.
    Daytime is normal, as soon as the sun goes down, the blue colors start getting a lot softer.

    Yes (at least that's the default).

    Anyway, here are some tips. Firstly, make sure your location is configured correctly. Secondly, there is almost no difference between 6500K (the baseline) and your current 5900. I suggest you start with 4500 for nighttime, then reduce it to 3400 after some days, and finally 2300, the lower limit before your screen starts looking like a darkroom.

    You need to apply a registry tweak and reboot to dip below 4500K, but f.lux will automatically notify you and offer to do it.

    Well, I'm happy a thread I created when I was a high school boy is relevant eight years later

    Also, so many of the people who posted here don't visit us anymore
