Hi Sherlock,

I'll pick this one:

1 to move it to the Lighting section


Wouldn't this post be better placed on the Community forum? :cheers:

@Holmes.Sherlock!

You forgot two necessary people:

an ingeneer to check whether the change is made with respect to all workplace safety aspects.
an union member to check whether the change is made with respect to all social aspects.

Hmm, Nuno has found a second meaning. But, it may serve a "bumerang" for you......................just joking.

Forum members are not allowed to change light bulbs, it is against the Health and Safety guidelines!

Famous comedy double-acts: first there was Laurel and Hardy, next came Morecambe and Wise and now we have Health and Safety.

You Forget to add:

2590 To not know what a light-bulb is,disregarding everything that was typed in the current forum and start a new topic on "light-bulb how do they work?"(I admit im one of the 2590)

5 environmentalist who chastise you for not using an energy friendly CFL (compact florescent light bulb)
25 people to flame the tree hugging environmentalists
1 moderator to ban 2 of the flamers for being overly abusive.
1 person wondering if you used the correct wattage bulb for the size of room the bulb is illuminating
364 people starting a discussion of the available wattage bulbs and their equivalents in incandescent/florescent/halogens/sodium/etc.
2 people decide to start a topic listing all the different types of light bulbs available.
10 grumpy old timers to say light bulbs are overrated and we should all go back to using oil lamps.

Maybe I add a bit OFF TOPIC, why I suggested this addin:

In the 80th (may be that is different now), I made an installation in the UK. And I plugged a new hardware piece in.
That has been a BIG FAILURE: I have been informed by the management, that me as system ingeneer is not allowed to plug in any hardware.

Following union rights that has to be done by an electrican..

Honni soit qui mal y pense

"Light bulb" contains 8 letters, but "lodygin" only 7.
Therefore transformation "Light bulb" into "lodygin" would be reasonable.
All other is wrong.

L.A.G.
