You see the whole thing about this particular thought/idea, Ria  Smiley

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PREMIUM-QUALITY-SELF-BALLASTED-METAL-HALIDE-LAMP-400W-E40-5000K-HYDROPONICS/282148014398?epid=510512521&hash=item41b155093e%3Ag%3Ac2UAAOSwPcVVuSIJ&_sacat=0&_nkw=self+ballasted+metal+halide+lamp&_from=R40&rt=nc&_trksid=m570.l1313

This is the ebay link to the so called self ballasted Metal Halide lamp which is for hydroponics application. Use the zoom feature to get a closer look of the quartz halogen linear tube which is concealed by the MH arc tube. Now I have confirmed the SBMH exists

This is a clear tubular self-ballasted mercury lamp with a halogen lamp instead of a tungsten filament. Some members here, have this lamp.

Dor, they have been getting such appreciation because they are indeed great stuff. Not a negative phenomena !

Things like this ->


<- were never happened in the history of the literature until Harry Potter. And I getting such behaviors negatively.

Fixtures with bi-pin sockets that will only take the bi-pin CFL's

LED retrofit fixtures and lamps with no replaceable bulbs

My take on the films is that they are all really well done with amazing acting, scenery, and music.  The sets are beautiful and the Scottish countryside (home of my earliest ancestors) where the castle is located IRL are just amazing!  Chris Columbus directed the first two films, The Sorcerer's Stone and the Chamber of Secrets, and I think those are the most true to the books.

The third film, the Prisoner of Azkaban is done by a new director and has a really different feel than the first two films.  It has a lot more humor, and a looser grip on the book's storyline.  I was a little disappointed at first because the 3rd book is my favorite book.  I like the third movie, though it is a drastic change from the style of the first two.  The fourth film, Goblet of Fire reigns it back in and is more true to the book.  This is when the series takes on a more intense and dark feel with the dangerous tasks in the Triwizard Tournament and the (Spoiler Alert!) return of the main villain.  The fifth film is really well done considering the length of the fifth book.  All of the good parts with the suspenseful dream scenes, the hilarious antics by the Weasley twins, and the intense battles are present.  The sixth film is lighter and keeps to the book nicely, setting up for the exciting conclusion in the seventh and eighth films/ seventh book. 

The seventh book is divided into two films, which I think is the right call.

Philips also made one for the US market, here. I'd also question whether those ebay ones ARE actually halide lamps?, as you know, halide lamps need to be started from an ignitor, how do you ignite a halide tube from an internal halogen lamp, directly off the mains?

Apple is trash in my opinion.
Well I can't change your opinion, you're probably a Samsung person, I'll admit Samsung does make good stuff
But personally I use Apple because I'm used to it, you're probably the same way with Samsung.

1. When I can't find a light bulb that I have been looking for.
2. When I order a 8' fixture and it comes to me in a 4' box
