Comment on Nocturne

Terrific idea! I tend to use my computer right before I go to bed. Studies have shown that, just like sunlight in the morning, working at a bright screen at bedtime can interrupt your body's production of melatonin; it's like sitting in front of a light therapy box. I had been using my monitor's brightness and contrast controls, but they're a PITA, and the default color scheme is hard to see on a dim screen.

Nocturne to the rescue: Not only is it nice and dim, but the color scheme reminds me that I'm in "bed" mode, not "surf" mode. It's a great psychological cue. As for keyboard shortcuts, QuicKeys etc. make a nice workaround.
