Hope to use this for helping old farts live in the modern era

First. my eyes can't handle the monitor's bright whites, so was using the 'Green' display option on the Doggie forum. But when I went else where it was pain time, have searched several times for a 'Day/Nite' browser option with no luck ... until today I found 'Blank Your Screen' for Firefox. There's one for google chrome also.

That leaves accessories notepad and readers, instead of Notepad I use Notepad ++, it's got a 'Blackboard' setting in Styles.

Haven't tracked down a night option for PDF yet.

Realize this is old news for most, but there may be one or two like me who don't know.

Almost every new strategy game release, I see some old farts complaining about not being able to read the small text.

Maybe they should go get their eyes checked again? :P

I thought this was about penis pumps.

And yes, you can choose from several styles on this forum, including green. There hasn't been much demand for others, so I haven't tried to add any.

I've the same problem, my normal reading glasses are usually fine. at other times the 'print' is too small and then it's reading glasses plus a 2x magnifying glass.

Did that in the bank the other day and the gal got a chuckle. :oops: ;)

"penis pumps" Don't know what you could be talking about.

On another subject, there's a skinny cucumber looking vegetable that, unlike a cumber, when you hold it straight out, it droops way, way down...the market ladies' slang for it is 'the old man'. (Google: old man thai vegetable)

Get a specific prescription for your computer use. measure the distance between your eyes and the screen. It will make you feel young again.....

Modern old guys need 3 pairs of glasses... distance... reading... computer...
