conquering imac brightness

8.6: proj.cyb`gear/mac`shades/
combined shade&blue-blocker/test:

. make new imac glasses with orange uv shades
taped to sunglasses
-- depressing in room but just right for mac .

8.7: proj.cyb`gear/mac`shades/
string to raise nose bridge:

. add bridge to mac shades to get more ventilation
and reduce fog .

8.10: proj.cyb`gear/mac`shades:
. tape isn't holding up? get help by
tucking the lenses under the nose bridge string .

8.18: proj.cyb`gear/mac`shades/
drill holes for holding shades on shades:
. use the aluminum wire
in the smallest holes my drill will give .
. like a staple but twisted once too .

mac shades
8.28: co.amazon/Uvex S0360X Ultra-spec 2000
Safety Eyewear, Orange Frame, SCT-Orange UV
Extreme Anti-Fog Lens:

5-star/99.9% of uv a,b,c for my imac:
. filters 99.9% of each of uva, uvb, and uvc;
(vaguely recall 100% is possible?)
anyway,
I use these for cutting the brightness on my imac
whose lowest brightness is far too powerful in a dark room .
. I combine these with dark glasses and the result is perfect .

prior ideas

7.30: proj.cyb/mac/sunglasses/
target white point set from white to blue:

. the white is too bright on this imac
(in reverse mode, the text is too bright!)
. one thing I can do for right now
is change the display calibration:
[@] menu/prefs/display/calibration/target white point
. set the target white point
from neutral white to either:
# d50: warm yellowish light (for graphics art)
# 9300: cool bluish light (for tv's).
. both help the text,
but blue also helps in non-reverse video mode .
