This is not a joke. But recently I was convinced that using a darker (preferably black) colour on computer monitors saves a little energy. The links that argue this case are given below.
For the skeptics one of the links is to a Government Department of Energy Website. Of course these savings are ONLY on CRT monitors.
Please e-mail/comment in case any post on this blog is difficult to read due to the darker colour scheme.
