I was looking into dimming it, I think you can use a PWM pin and some code to do it but I'm not sure how. I'm personally adding a resistor to the default hookup tonight to reign in the brightness a little.

Edit: I put a 1k ohm resistor between the backlight 5v, red wire—second from the right in my pic, it's no longer annoyingly bright. Use a higher value resistor if you want it even dimmer.
