My monitor is too bright!

Sat Mar 6 19:28:00 UTC+1100 2004


I have my monitor brightness set on zero, and it's too bright!

Perhaps I'm just experiencing some sort of serious 'eye blowout', after all, I have been staring at it for 21 hours now.. still, this is unprecedented. It hasn't bothered me this much in the past, but I've always had it set to zero and wished that it was on -37.

I wonder if there is some way I can control the brightness in software too, given that the hardware is already as low as it can go? I've had to dim the contrast just so that I don't go blind! (although, perhaps it's too late, I've already got my glasses prescription, I'm just holding out on fulfillment for as long as possible.)
