Redshift your computer monitor. For the Zzzz...

21 Apr 2012

I have recently discovered a neat little package for linux called "Redshift"; so simple and elegant and very worthy of a mention on the blog.

Redshift icon: A red light bulb

Once installed and running at startup, redshift adjusts your monitor(s) colour "temperature" to match the time of day / year and local weather conditions. With all these modern gadgets bombarding our eyes it's no wonder sleep is becoming a big problem; this wee helper acts as a great cue that it's time to shutdown and get some shuteye.

And on that note... Zzzz...
