People like me, who are working day and night on PC would love this application, which automatically sets the brightness of your monitor according to the weather of your residing country. Off course, the time and place is optional, but one can tweak this application to suit their needs.
The people @ flux say,
Ever notice how people texting at night have that eerie blue glow?
Or wake up ready to write down the Next Great Idea, and get blinded by your computer screen?
During the day, computer screens look good—they’re designed to look like the sun. But, at 9PM, 10PM, or 3AM, you probably shouldn’t be looking at the sun.
F.lux fixes this: it makes the color of your computer’s display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.
It’s even possible that you’re staying up too late because of your computer. You could use f.lux because it makes you sleep better, or you could just use it just because it makes your computer look better.
I have been using this app for like one month, and recently I sat late in my office, and the dull brightness was really soothing to my eyes.

This application is available for Windows, MAC, and Linux. For my Linux readers, I haven’t tried this yet on my Linux PC, but here is the link I found. I will be updating my comments on how it went for Linux.
