  • Redshift

    Free Mac Windows Linux BSD Website

    Redshift adjusts the color temperature according to the position of the sun. A different color temperature is set during night and daytime.

    During twilight and early morning, the color temperature transitions smoothly from night to daytime temperature to allow your eyes to slowly adapt. At night the color temperature should be set to match the lamps in your room. This is typically a low temperature at around 3000K-4000K. During the day, the color temperature should match the light from outside, typically around 5500K-6500K. The light has a higher temperature on an overcast day.

  • Piperka

    Free Web Website

    What is Piperka?

    It works as a plain old web comic list and there's a top list built from user subscriptions too. But those things are not the site's main focus.

    It also helps you keep track of comics. It tells you what comics have updated since your last visit and keeps bookmarks for you. You can input it an archive page's address and Piperka will match it with a comic and a page. Piperka runs a crawler which periodically checks on webcomics to seek for new pages and adds them to its index if it finds any.
    What kinds of comics does Piperka keep track of?

    Generally anything that has a linear archive with navigation buttons with distinct, permanent addresses for archive pages. Piperka's crawler acts much like a human who returns to visit the last page to see if the page's changed to add a link to an update.
