Really dim down an external display

We've covered both of these, as well as a couple others, over on Macworld. My favorite is currently DarkAdapted, although it's not free:

fyi... from their website:

"DarkAdapted is free of charge (but remains copyrighted by Stephen E. Hutson)."

"Macintosh users can upgrade to DarkAdapted Pro, enabling advanced features such as a system-wide menu, brightness hotkeys, independent display control, event scheduling, scroll wheel support, and much more"

i just downloaded and installed the free version of darkadapted and must say it's pretty cool! btw... one feature of the pro version is hiding the icon from the dock, which can also be achieved using dock dodger (donationware).
