Unlike most people, for years, I've been dropping the brightness on all my monitors all the way down to 0, and increasing the contrast to compensate.

This always horrifies the artsy-fartsy types as now my "color accuracy is completely shot" and "all the details are lost" and some-such BS. But I'm writing code on this thing, rendered in black, on a light-grey background (pure white for window backgrounds is evil). I'm not watching HD videos or editing high-color images that need to be printed.

I keep hearing from people with eyestrain and headaches and can't sit in front of a display more than a few hours each day. Usually it turns out they have their brightness cranked all the way to 100%. No wonder they feel like they've been staring at the sun. I can sit in front of my monitors for 8, 12, 16 hours a day with no eyestrain whatsoever.
