And SeaVipe, it sounds like we are related... but my eyes are obviously much worse than yours.... I have my font set to Lucida Console TWELVE for a *MINIMUM*.... later at night, I jump it up to FOURTEEN (or 15 sometimes) so I can keep working. [smile]
For me black background goes way back to another lifetime when I worked with marine engineering companies. Their offices were full of engineers and designers with the blinds drawn and all the lights out. All the monitors were set to black background. After a while I tried it myself and I found that I was able to work longer and better with less eye strain and fewer/no headaches. So it stuck.
Also, I find that most other colours show up better on a black background. Yellow on white is just a blurr to me!


José, the area of Canada where I live is classified as Semi Arid Desert. We have long hot, dry summers and short cold winters and vineyards! Not ancient like Spanish vineyards, but they will be one day.
I suppose this post should be in the General section. :0)

I'm over in Newfoundland and I can certainly say that we're not classified as a semi arid desert! When I retire I'll move over your part of Canada! :-)

The ideal climate for wine production is:

A mild spring with not too heavy rain to help the vineyard grow, with a calm and temperate period during which the vineyard blooms, followed by a hot and sunny summer with little rain to allow the fruit to ripen at that time in growth and a late dry summer and early fall to finish ripening the grapes and for the harvest.

A cold winter that inhibits growth, thus being able to rest the vineyard, with frosts to exterminate infections, although not too strong not to affect the vineyard, and with enough rain to have moisture reserves in the soil.

The kind of soil is also important, but that is another story.

I think we tick all the boxes here, José.

Paul, my Wife and her siblings are from South East, Placentia. 2 of her 4 sisters live in the Vancouver area (we're in Kamloops) When we have a family get together (and soon I hope) I can barely follow the conversation. Jigg's Dinner? Another story!

I'm down in Dallas, Texas... normally almost semi-arid desert, except this is one of those years... we are already 13 inches above normal rainfall for this year! Back in the 1950's, Dalllas and Fort Worth were smart and said, "if we want to grow, we must have water!". So, although it is very flat here, they dammed up every little stream they had and made 15 lakes of very many acres each - but the deepest one is only about 40 feet deep! So, even with all of those lakes, with so many people moved/moving to Dallas; every year we run out of water and go on water restrictions! Even crazy rain doesn't matter, because the lakes are shallow and fill quick... but at 100 degrees F all summer, they also evaporate quick.

I like Vancouver... [heavy sigh]

And black edit screen... Paul and José must be youngsters. All we had back in the early 70's were terminals with black screens and, usually, green characters. I guess my eyes got adjusted to 80 hours a week of that back then... white screens give me a headache. Xerox Parc and their crazy "graphic screen" ideas just ruined it for everyone. You all will probably go blind before your time! [BIG Smile]

(And if I need to help someone on their Win10 PC and they have a white screen, I go in to the notifications and turn on [Night Light] while I'm there, so that it cuts down the blue wavelength glare).
