There might be a hacker mode where you run a daemon on your Mac that syncs with f.lux (and then you could move it to a home server or raspberry pi if you wanted). But we need to do better than "leave the mac on all the time" even though I know some people have a mac mini that does that - it isn't most people!
One way is to buy a cheap lux meter on Amazon, and post the values here for your workspace (with screen off and on), and the room you are in before bed (screen off and on).
These numbers ignore spectrum, but they make a neat discussion.
Here, we've lit our office at >500 lux of 5000K LED, and our house can do <5 lux of 1500K before bed. This nighttime setting is maybe extreme for some people, but I think it's actually a reasonable start to the "control" we need to affect circadian timing.
A bit late for the party on this, but as an amateur astronomer, I think it opened up the eyes to the members of the IAU; (International Astronomical Union); that voted "NO" and demoted Pluto to minor planet status to maybe have a re-think.
@adamlogan Thank you for caring, Adam, and for the detailed feedback regarding what works for you. I had never heard of the concept of float centres, which sounds intriguing. It's probably great for relaxation. Not sure it's available outside of the USA though.
At the moment I'm reducing my exposure to EMF and (for the current health issues) financing research through donations to targeted foundations. Of course I'm also using f.lux for my vision. (Eagerly waiting for Dasung Paperlike clones that'd retail for a cheaper price, as e-ink screens would help too.)
FYI I emailed Svet a few days ago asking for an update on shipping and if I could expect the bulbs to ship by the end of Summer 2017. This was the reply I received from Aleksey Dubov.
Thank you for your support!
Unfortunately, we haven’t got enough pre-orders from the US to proceed with FCC and UL certification. Without these certifications, we cannot ship to you. We are still getting new orders from the US. As soon as we get enough preorders, we will have a batch with these certifications."
for example run flux.exe /Fluorescent
and it will adjust the temperature of the running instance
Sometimes I stay late at night with neon light on and the monitor is too warm an dark. I would like to connect my home automation system to flux...so if neon light is on I can send command to change mode
also polling status might be helpful
