Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

-------------------- Start of message text --------------------

This means not working on a bright screen in a dark room!

One useful way to do this (assumes your desk backs up to a wall)
is to mount spots (wee IKEA clamp spots are ideal) *under* your desk,
pointing up the wall, so the light spills up between the back edge of the
desk & the wall, thus lighting the wall (providing the luminence matching)
without shining in your eyes.

The light which doesn't get up there is also handy to see which plug you're
pulling out when you're swapping stuff around back there.


when working on a computer, try to more or less equal the luminosity of
the environment. Also avoid reflections on the screen, and glaring
lights or spots (lamps, windows)

this reduces eye-stress and fatigue dramatically, and might avoid
headaches after looong days.
