Do you remember the little button shaped devises that had a diode in them? They were made just the right size to fit in a lamp socket.
I still use some of those little diodes... now I just use 130V bulbs mostly, but back then (way?) those diodes were great in the stair lights and any lights in hard to reach places.
(wow, you guys are old hu?  Hehehe)

Yeah I have a couple spot bulbs that keep burning out and are a pain to replace. I could use a couple of those buttons or find a long life bulb that size.

As to age... Most people guess early 40s but the drivers license says I'm a bit over 50.  ;)

Also welcome and thanks for your informative posts. It won't be long before you hit the magic number of posts and shed your newbie status. With the exception of those of us grandfathered in from the previous old board, everyone has started here as a newbie.

YES! I have desperately been looking for the "Bulb Life Extender" buttons, but can find none, even on eBay. Does anyone know of a source? I need about six.
