I know how you all are already tired of all this threads, but for those that actually care...

This Wednesday I went to a doctor for a check up and apparently I busted my eyes on computer. So now I might have to wear glasses. So from now on I descided to give up playing computer at all and notuse it for games, just for school. Heh, basically this means that I won't be playing for quit a while. However I am pretty sure I'll be back. So you WILL see me.

So don't forget me. And I probably won't be checking this thread today, I will appear ommorow for last check up and then you will only b able to reach me through my E-Mail.

P.S.: Yur NOT getting any of my stuff =P, I'll need it for when I will come back!

Why don't you take the Brig Pilgrim to California, then return on the Alert, and write an extremely boring book called 'Two Years Before the Mast', which I am being forced to read.

Anywho, see ya later.

Same thing happened with me my doctor said to turn down the brightness on it and the contrast a lil and that will help and degauss it every 30 min.

My eyes can withstand days of staring at a screen, but once I stop doing it, IMMENSE PAIN.

Or if you just sit with your eyes closed for about a minute, it should degauss them anyway.

Androk, it looks like the cones and rods in your eyes need rest. I'd say you just need about a 15 minute break in every hour or hour and a half. It says to do that in video game manuals, and it really does help. I almost had to get glasses.

Technicallities (is that a word?):

If you look at something too long, the rods and cones in your eyes start to get tired. When you blink, it degausses them for a short period of time. When you blink, it also moistens the retina, which in turn also helps the cones/rods.

;) That's all for today for Dr. Neonight.
