Have you tried the various versions of the site? Some are less bright.
timeforchess.com might meet your needs.
Here's info from the FAQ. ---> FAQ
Other than using one of the other brands, about all I know for you to do is adjust your monitor intensity.
If the other versions of the site don't help, I would suggest that you post something in the 'site ideas' forum and maybe Russ will come up with a new version of the site with less brightness to meet your needs.
