F.lux – an addendum

The other day, I bought this T-shirt off Teefury. It has Abed and Troy (from Community), in a blanket fort, reading Kickpuncher comics. Pretty awesome, right? It is also very inyourface-bright red.

Now, I don't mind this, but it was a little bit of an unexpected surprise, when I opened the package. You see, I was under the assumption that I'd ordered a nice, soft, almost pastel-ish orangey-red t-shirt, not an #FF0000 firetruck bright one. I actually went "huh. that's the kind of false advertising I'm not used to seeing on Teefury" for a second. So I went to their archives, relocated the t-shirt, and found that it was at least as bright as up above, in their picture. This confused me even more -- "how did I not notice that?" -- until I suddenly realised I had first seen the t-shirt ad in the evening, and then ordered it that very same night. (Well, you kind of have to, considering they sell a different shirt every day. :P) You don't suppose... I forced my f.lux to turn on despite it being daytime, for a minute, and sure enough, there was the nice soft pastel red again. Whoops.

Basically this blog post is a big "note to self: f.lux has a nice 'disable if you need to do colour-sensitive stuff' button -- learn to use it."

While we're on the subject of Community and t-shirts anyway, I now own a Teefury t-shirt that has Abed from Community on it, while Abed has worn a Teefury t-shirt on Community. There's something very meta in there somewhere.

The screencapped proof from 3x01, but he wears the same one in 2x21 as well. Admittedly I'm not entirely sure this was also a Teefury print as I don't actually own this design myself, but Liam does, and I'm fairly certain he mentioned getting it from there. It was definitely one of those "shirt a day" shops like Teefury or Qwertee or whatever, anyway. So there. :P
