For years I have had trouble seeing things in my backpack because they blended in with the dark background color. Recently I set up a new computer and found a utility for calibrating my monitor. After calibrating, the backpack color lightened up considerably. So if you are plagued by this issue, look through your utilities for a monitor calibration routine. All this time, I thought that the devs were deaf to peep complaints on this issue. If the devs' monitors are properly calibrated, I doubt that they would ever think this was a valid issue for people, and thus no action has been taken. The utility is in the control panel on Windows 7 under display, subtopic calibrate color.
