What is the name of this Javascript code reminding visitors to sleep?
August 5, 2016 5:32 PM   Subscribe

There was a bit of Javascript featured on a site like LifeHacker a few months back that would place a black page before a website at night telling visitors that their sleep was more important than whatever the contents of this website were. The page had a link if you wanted to bypass the gate. The application was the first project the team had worked on and their mission statement was that they developed web apps to help improve the world. Does anyone know what I'm referring to? Thanks!

Oh jeez, after searching for this to no avail two dozen times, I finally stumbled upon the magical list of keywords. If anyone else is interested, it's called nightnight.

For anyone a little freaked out by that URL and afraid to click it, it's Japanese. You can also go to:
