Hi guys. Just want to share with you two little things that helped in my work at computer, and maybe can help you.
First thing is a little program i discovered some days ago, F. Lux. Basicly, it adjust the tone of your screen according to the hour of the day, so your eyes end the day in better shape. You can read a review of it here:http://appaholic.co.uk/2009/08/03/flux-helping-you-sleep-better-with-the-power-of-light/
and download it here http://www.stereopsis.com/flux/
Itīs available for Win,Mac&Linux for free.
The second thing that really im enjoying is a Tablet Pen. Im not a graphic designer, just acquire it for some little drawings for my classroom. But soon i found how easy is use it in a DAW. You need to draw CC or automation envelopes with the mouse...? Itīs not the most quick&accurate thing. Try the same with a Tablet Pen, so easy! I have a cheap Genius 8x6 mousepen, that works great, but i guess that with any wacom or similar you will improve in the same way.
Well, just two things i liked, and maybe some of you could too.
