Auto dimmer (with GPS or LON/LAT position)
NEW: Dimmer now supports GPS-Receivers with NMEA protocols.
remember that this is a beta version, cause i don't had much time to test, so please give me feedback!
I just coded a program that automatically dims your monitor gamma.
It locates at your position (lonitude & latitude) where the sun is and dim the monitor if its dark.
Also you have a manual mode any MANY more really nice features.
If you set the COM port to "none", the manual lat and long settings are used!
