hi, a psa

if u are a fool like me and write in google docs (??? why. love your vision.), at some point you’ve probably shoved your face under a thick comforter into pitch darkness to allow your liquefied eyeballs to re-solidify since docs doesn’t provide any default tools to MURDER THAT HELLISH WHITE BACKGROUND with and f.lux only does so much. well if you’re younger you probably don’t give a shit but after you’ve set up your 401k and find yourself proud of matching your employer’s contributions, you’re probably at that age where u leo decaprio squint at your computer screen at all hours of the day whether it’s dark or not. anyway, this exists as an add-on:

BAM

and it has those diff options on the side to keep ur pastel aesthetic intact and it helps a little bit, enabling you to go blind slower wowe isn’t that wild

Hi! Sorry to hijack your post but I thought maybe I could help with this. I suffer from chronic migraines and use gdocs A LOT for my previous jobs and currently for writing. The white background is murder and your brightness levels can only provide so much mercy.

I wasn’t aware of this add-on and I do love me some pastels, but I found out about an add-on called Dark Reader for chrome. My previous job required a lot of excel and data crunching so WHITE EVERYWHERE PAIN AUGH.

I’ll be using the images from the add-on previews since my computer is hella slow.

Dark reader is basically a color inversion add-on, but a little smarter. Sometimes it inverts photos, sometimes it doesn’t.

What I really love it is how it’s customizable

You can turnit on or off easily and set the preferences to your liking.

Absolute FAVE thing about it is that you can assign urls or websites you want darkened or excluded. So, say, you’re okay with Tumblr’s default colors you can have that excluded. Inversely, you can just put in the url of your gdoc document so that it’s the only thing inverted.

It’s been a real wonder for me and my migraines. I use it in combination with f.lux and lowest brightness settings. Hope this helps, and again, sorry for the hijack!

Dark Reader show me the advanced levels of optical comfort

“…last
year this photograph of children looking at their smartphones by Rembrandt’s ‘The
Night Watch’ in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam
[went viral.] It was often accompanied by outraged, dispirited comments such as
“a perfect metaphor for our age,” “the end of civilization” or “a sad picture of
our society”.

It turns out that the
Rijksmuseum has an app that, among other
things, contains guided tours and further information about the works on display.
As part of their visit to the museum, the children, who minutes earlier had admired
the art and listened attentively to explanations by expert adults, had been instructed
to complete an assignment by their school teachers, using, among other things, the
museum’s excellent smartphone app….

The tragic thing is that this — the truth — will
never go viral. So, I wonder, what is more likely to bring about the death of civilization,
children using smartphones to learn about art or the willful ignorance of adults
who are too quick to make assumptions?” José PicardoMedium
