1,000,000 % agree Jamie !! I've said many times to both Admins and other members , I'm here to have fun , relax , share what I know and most importantly , LEARN !! If I want stress and aggravation , I'll just go to work !!  While I understand fully that we're gonna argue , fight and disagree with each other from time to time  , IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE A FULL TIME THING !!!! There are a few members here who seem to take pride in badmouthing , criticizing , forcing their opinions and just plain throwing other members under the bus so to speak .  As a group , we CANNOT survive this way !!  How many fantastic bands/groups split up over creative differences and petty bickering. 

 So to every LG member , think before you type !! Being a smart-ass can make you look like a dumb ass and cause one or more good members to pack up and leave !! We don't have to like and or comment on every photo or topic, I know I don't !!

 In the end , WE ALL LOSE !!!   :sadbulb:

 Please everyone , TRY to at least be civil with your fellow members ! You don't need to be friends with everyone , but be civil !! 

 Something my mom taught me...If you don't have anything nice to say than DON'T SAY ANYTHING !!

 I want this site to outlive me , NOT the other way around !!

It depends on the type, howit is designed, it varies a lot between types.
Some are supposed to barely warm up (barely 30degC in a 25degC room,...), some (mainly the modern T5HO or some CFLs) are designed to runabove 100degC on theirhot spot. Generally the more moden type,the hotter it is designed to run.

Hi Alights,

Not sure I quite understand your post.  Are you selling the entire collection as one or selling individual items off piecemeal?
If the latter, are we to just post here with the item in question?
If yes, I'd be interested in this:

Let me know how much you'd like for it.

 5   Lamps / Modern / Re: Philips Ignitor SX26 vs SX72  on: Today at 08:40:25 PM

The starting pulse voltage of sx26 trigger is about 380-430v, which can match 18W, 26W and 35W

The starting pulse voltage of sx72 trigger is about 420-460v, which can match 26W, 35W, 36W and 55W

When the bulb fails, the bulb tube pressure remains at about 75V, the bulb tube pressure does not drop, and it is not under the normal working voltage and current, the sx26 trigger will automatically cut off the power for protection

When the bulb fails and the bulb tube pressure is maintained at about 85V, the bulb tube pressure will not drop. When not under normal working voltage and current, sx72 trigger will automatically cut off power for protection

18W can work under sx72 trigger, but it will slightly affect the service life, but the problem is not big. The main problem is that when the service life of 18W is about to end, it may not be able to accurately detect the bulb and power off the protection circuit, affecting the service life of the trigger.
If you are not afraid of trouble, you can often observe the use of the bulb before starting the 18W lamp and judge whether you can replace the bulb in advance

I know I'm a bit late to this, but Colin, Cree, don't leave, I know things can get a bit stressful due to some people who may act superior to others, but there are also tons of people here who will miss you when you're gone, if you need to take a break to cool off, then do so, take a step back and think about it. I know what it's like to feel like you're better off gone, but just know that that is not correct, despite what some may tell you, there will be more to tell you that you are wanted here
Thanks for the encouragement. I will stay on LG as long as everything goes smoothly.

If there's ONE thing life taught me, it's this one: you have no power over other people, but you DO have power over yourself. I'm fully aware it's easier said than done to simply "ignore those people". But I really didn't find any other way to make it through in this life, and have a good time, without constantly having things ruined "because of" other people. I chose to let go when I feel a situation is going to go in circles, or is already at that stage, and I move on. When I compare this mindset with how I used to handle such situations, the relief is hardly describable.

And to all of you guys who want to leave, at the very least, as others mentioned, make it a break of however long you need to let the dust settle. After that you can always make a more rational decision. I can tell from experience that emotional decisions are rarely the best!

I believe that this topic failed in part of its intent.
That is I'm sick and tired of being ignored by a couple of members here that I thought we're my friends or so they said.
And all for what over a stupid F(censored) disagreement that couldn't be worked out and therefore bridges were burned, feelings were hurt, Ill will harbored, and friendships ended.
Was it worth it??
Bridges shouldn't be burned because you never know when you'll have to cross them again.
WigWag and I heard Slaughter sing it at 140db "you keep burning your bridges and you're not gonna have anyone else.
Is it worth losing friends over something petty??
Well I just don't have much to say anymore but when it's all over......
