color scheme
This colorscheme was inspired by other low/medium contrast colorschemes. None of them had the kind of colours that were easy on my eyes.

I strove for a scheme that had a good contrast to make syntax highlighting help with establishing context as well as making sure the colours would not hurt your eyes over a longer period of time.
install details
Simply copy this file to your $HOME/.vim/colors and within vim do:

:set colorscheme shobogenzo

When using Gnome terminal you will need to make sure your profile's colors are set to xterm.
