F.lux is a program that changes the color temperature of your monitor based on the time of day. At night you will get a more orange, warm temperature. This makes using Crunchbang, or any OS for that matter easier on your eyes at night.
wget http://secure.herf.org/flux/xflux.tgz tar -xvzf xflux.tgz sudo cp xflux /usr/local/bin sudo chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/xflux
xflux -z zipcode xflux -l lat -g long
I've added "xflux -z 03079", for example, to Openbox' autostart. I've been using F.lux for over a year now, and it really does make a huge difference for me.

hey, cool, i used f.lux on Windows, had no idea it was also available for Linux! thanks Connor!
f.lux gives a more natural incadescent orange glow whereas redshift gives a red glow. Both help prevent your retinas from burning at night. Both are great apps.
I don't normally use windows, but when I do, I use f.lux.

^ i have to use Windows in an upcoming theatre-show because of troubles with my soundcard in that particular environment. since i'll be doing the show under low lighting, good reminder to install f.lux on there...
@Conner: a small thing i ran into:

Honestly speaking, I have discovered redshift thanks to fellow user Sunfizz in one of his scripts.
Same for me.
At first glance it seemed way to red for my taste, but I used it for several hours nonetheless and was impressed.
It will definately find its way on my desktop.
Add another kewl and thanks here ...
Haven't managed to tame a couple wm's fully. Might try this ... as sometimes at night lately, starting to feel like my eyeballs are gonna melt and dribble outta me head. Dang nix is amazing and da good ole #! community, as always digging up kewl stuff to share !
Some common cbiz abbreviations. This will save me time and yet @ same time tell folks what the babble is supposed to mean.
Vll ! = ( Viva la gnu/Linux !) Vl#!! = ( Viva la #! !) Last but not least, UD ... OD ! = ( Use Debian ... or die !)
I set my location and it worked flawlessly.
It is just very red, but I don't mind.
As far as I know it would not even work without setting your location.

ConnorCG, ty for sharing this with us !
being deeply interested in user-friendly interfaces, ergonomics and human-centered GUI design, i've installed this yesterday afternoon and found to like it quite a lot !
CBizgreat!, i know exactly what you're talking about.
technology must adapt to humans, and not vice-versa, like many people tend to think.
this is a perfect example. a simple, yet very useful tool.
