:-) I find the black background for the editor window much softer on my
eyes. Over the years, computers have really screwed up my eyes, so now I'm
trying to look after what I have left. :)

My efforts seem to be helping (and those scientists were not lying). I am
using better lighting conditions, LCD instead of CRT monitor, softer color
schemes in my OS and daily used applications, added rest periods (which

The wiki searching ability really sucks. No advance search options at all!
If it doesn't give you results, it does the opposite and gives you too much

pages get added, the worse the problem becomes.

In such cases I often try and use Google to rather do the searching for me.
