Finally, a useful response. The summary talks about the FUD surrounding this ban, but doesn't do anything to mitigate the misinformation. The linked article (yes, I read it) doesn't say anything about the bulbs still being available as you mention, only "manufacturers are honoring the standards and discontinuing their production of incandescent light bulbs." Can you provide any additional information about the continued availability, valid exempt uses, and any potential application or qualification process for being permitted to buy the bulbs after the ban?
No, I'm sure that if standard 60W incandescent screw-in bulbs are banned, and therefore no longer available, that I'll have to buy the specialty "basking bulbs" that already exist, for anywhere from $7-$15 each.
With a few exceptions, I'm mostly using CFLs in my home, and have no problems with them. In the majority of the locations that still have incandescent bulbs, I haven't replaced them because those lights are on dimmers. Does anyone know of any non-incandescent bulbs that are energy efficient, long-lasting, inexpensive, and dimmable? I would love to get something better into the flood cans in my living room.
Agreed. 60W incandescents have been working great as a basking light for our turtle for years... an application that requires light and heat. I'm sure in a few years, I'll have to start purchasing incredibly expensive specialty bulbs. I'd rather keep buying incandescents, and pay an extra tax that goes toward energy research, environmental benefits, or something along those lines.
The NSA is working away on its new "First Intelligence Community Comprehensive National Cyber-security Initiative Data Center' to keep track of every last one of us.
I don't believe you. The government would never fund a project called FICCNCIDC. That's not a pronounceable acronym at all. Until it spells something clever, I'll remain skeptical.
If you're running a bake-off with access points, you're probably running just a bit too much power into the radios.
On-topic, I do like my redundant-controller, centrally-managed 160+ AP Aruba system.
The TAU research team took the project a step farther by combining the fibers with a self-contained cooling system based on liquid nitrogen, which keeps the sapphire wire in a highly efficient superconducting state without overheating.
I never see Facebook content on any site other than Facebook, and their social plugin can't track me.
