It means you're using your computer without turning on the light. That's not good for you. : P

Specially because if it is a pitch black abyss you might be eaten by a grue. (you know where they come from right?)

I don't mind bright things on my monitor, nor high contrast. The way to avoid headaches from that is turn your brightness down.
Unless you have a screen/monitor made in the last few years, in which case "0 brightness"="flashlight mode". And if you're stuck with a laptop, you absolutely can't have a light source behind you. :/

If anyone else here has an iMac with Windows on it and can't figure out how to adjust the screen brightness, go to the Power Options in your control panel. There will be a slider at the bottom that adjusts the brightness.

iMac or newer Macs are both very stupid in that regard.

I am on OSX at work, someone know how to fix the contrast by the way?

Um...

On the iMac keyboard that came with your OSX, you can press FN+<function key with a sun and a up/down arrow on it>. This also ought to work with Macbook Pro keyboards. However, you might not be using that keyboard... um, Google, anyone?

EDIT: That's brightness, not contrast. My bad.

Actually, to make the dark text on white background not bother me, I have to turn it so dim that it strains my eyes to read sometimes. I don't have that problem with light text on black backgrounds.

My rule of thumb, make the screen about as bright as whatever is behind it, and you never have a problem unless you're tired.
What if the sun is behind it?
a lot of logins

If I remember right, there was a setting in the System Preferences that did it... It was something in the Universal Access section, I think.

44 Gj is pretty nice, but it's very, very red. : P
I had just seen the movie "Iron Man", blame Marvel.
Oh, and I'm using the actual default, "after the rain". The default changes depending on which was the last time I updated that part of postline's settings, and the mood of that moment.

Real sunlight hurts my eyes...

That's why i use After the Rain
It simulates the warming rays of the sun I can't bear to see
