Post Optional screen colors
This is not exactly an issue, but it seemed most appropriate here: would it be possible to have a cooler color option for the robotc IDE? Like dark green or something, so if we are tired programmers programming late into the night our eyes are not getting powerwashed by the bright white :wink: Thanks.

As of today, you can already set a different color for the text (View - Preferences - Detailed Preferences) when under Expert or Super User mode:

Are you talking about a background color?

I am talking about the background. It can be so hard to look at for tired eyes.

I use a really great little program that changes the colour temperature of my screen, depending on the time of day. It's called F.lux and it's really, really great! I can't even use a computer without that first. Download and install it here: [LINK].

The alternative is to get a pair of these:

Make sure you post a picture of yourself with them and post it on the forums.

Heh heh, thanks for the second idea, but I think I will try the first idea. :)
