Working in a dark room? A great tool to relax your eyes

This is one of the best tools I have ever come across.

Many of us enjoy working at night. It’s quiet and mystical. There’s one problem though:
Less ambience light means more stress for the eyes as computer screen lighting becomes more intense.

Enter: F.LUX

This wonderful little program colors your screen depending on the time of day.
At night the screen will become much ‘warmer’ – making it much easier to work.

For Windows & Mac – and its free. Download it today!

A warning though: I have experienced audio problems on one laptop with it (a cpu spike every 15 seconds – not a problem, except if you need a highly reliable machine for live performances.)

All hail the uninvolved listener.

Sometimes when we have worked on a song for too long we start to loose focus. Gregory Kush knows a smart trick to refresh our hearing.
