Web work and computers
They go together. As I got into them I picked up a few bits of information that might be interesting to other people.
Personally I don't really like blog software so thought I'd do something like one, but with an html site. Whenever I do have the time and I have been reminded of something worth posting, I will put up a page, hopefully once a week.
If you do wind up in front of the computer for hours at a time, one thing that has helped me is adjusting the monitor brightness as low as it will go. You do want your monitor to be about as bright as the background lighting, or you will have a bright spot in your field of vision and that is hard on my eyes.
Most people are a bit enthusiastic about the brightness they set their TV or monitors to. They seem to think more is good that way and it is like trying to read something typed on a lampshade instead of just normal daylight on a page. Also the color is richer and looks better when it isn't washed out by light. My experience and opinions of course, yours might vary.
I keep the brightness on my monitor set to 0%. It isn't actually 0% because when I was turning it down, from 40% down the brightness didn't decrease at all, but I would personally like it a bit lower. That has been a serious help for eyestrain. I don't expect to buy another monitor for years but if I do I will want to try out the model first and see how dim I can set it.
The Discovery Channel had a show about "things your mother told you that aren't true." One was that dim light can hurt your eyes. The DC's comment was "dim light can't hurt your eyes any more than it can hurt a camera." But I've noticed since I was a teenager that reading with bright light is hard on mine.
