Ask Slashdot: Best Tools For Dealing With Glare Sensitivity? 195

First time accepted submitter der_pinchy writes "For many years I have used a high-contrast desktop color scheme (with green text on black background) and notice more and more software uses a forced color scheme that can make it difficult to use. For web browsing I have always used Opera and its white-on-black user style sheet, but have to constantly tweak it so that certain elements and transparent images are visible. Is there anything to be done with some of the major offenders, like Office or recent versions of Visual Studio? Even recent browsers that support user style sheets still use a forced color scheme on a lot of there dialog controls."

    The fact this was modded -1 demonstrates the problem with the moderation system and the readership on this site.

    "3D glasses" are polarized sunglasses. Why do you think they are two separate things?

    It's the orientation of the polarization that makes them different.

    3D glasses have the polarization rotated 90 degrees between lenses.

    Polarized sunglasses have the polarization oriented in the same direction.

    You wouldn't want to wear 3D glasses while driving, because your vision would be different between your eyes - you'd see some reflected light with one eye and not the other.

Can anyone remember when the times were not hard, and money not scarce?
