You don't have to turn on the red light. Roooooooooxanne! Turn on the red light.

Sting should really make up his mind about that.

My office has become a red light district. And I mean that in the literal sense, because I have switched my computer screen from blue light to red light. I've done this via Redshift, because I use a linux platform. But I'm sure the rest of you could find something similar for Mac or Windows.

The reason we should all shift from blue light to amber or red is to protect our delicate eyes and hormone balances. And here, I do not mean the hormones that control your sex drive, but those that control sleep and hunger and other functions of the body. It seems artifical light can play havoc on those of us with sleep disorders. But, of course, we are not going to simply stop using our computers come sundown. We aren't Amish! Or...Seventh Day Adventists. Or whomever it is that puts down the plow at sunset. Orthodox Jewish people, I believe...at least on Fridays.

Anyway...my point...and I did have one...is I now have a reddish, rather hard to read, but paradoxically easier on my eyes and brain computer screen. And you can get one, too. If you have a linux computer it is free and easy, just Google RedShift. I think it is also available for Windows. Please be aware that colors will look different when RedShift is engaged, but your eyes will thank you in the morning.
