The only good green is that which reproduces
itself, of nature itself.
The rest is non recyclable bull shit.

My little revenge is taking place in the basement. One corner is stacked with boxes of incandescent light bulbs. More on the way.

Oh, JWM will be hard to put up with, now!

I'm with Cathy's Revenge, which is what I shall now call my bulb-hoarde.

Didn't the EU outlaw the manufacture & sale of incandescent light bulbs? I know they're trying to do that here in the US, cowardly via regulation at the EPA rather than through actual legislation.

Factoid: The green wavelengths of the visible spectrum are the easiest for the human eye to discern subtle differences in over distance.

That's why the closest I'm getting to the green revolution is my small stash of NV gear, Picatinny rail-mounted "green" lasers, and the solar panel to recharge their batteries.

LED lights ain't bad either for certain applications.

For example; The current state of the art LED lights are great for economical lighting in 0bamaville camp outings - except for when you have to determine the true color of the pork & beans on your hobo stove. LED lights are also virtually indispensable on patrol during a long evening zombie hunt, or for use in defensive LPOP's where thermal imaging gear is not particularly effective at spotting the undead who've triggered your seismic perimeter sensors.

Thank you very much, Gerard. I'm gobsmacked.

No thanks needed. It's clear it could not have been done without you.

WWWeb echoed my thoughts exactly. Tart it up in a nice faux-Byzantine script with appropriate illuminations. Just the thing for the study wall.

That's *two* b's in Webb, thank you very much.

And being a Highly Compensated Computer Geek of many years' standing, I have had to endure World Wide Webb jokes about my name since the days of HTML 2 or thereabouts.

I already knew JWM rocked, but this is impressive.
