Mom mom was born in Ireland so in 2014 I went with her to visit. As the plane came down I couldn’t believe my eyes SOX SOX and more SOX. There were Sox lamps in trees on buildings lighting the sidewalks. Now mind you I wanted a sox lamp since I was a child and saw them in the Lincoln tunnel in New Jersey but couldn’t afford one. I took night walks especially to take it in. I believe they’ve moved to LED now so I was lucky to catch that.
 2   General / General Discussion / Gas fill of halogen A19’s (between capsule and outer wall)  on: Today at 11:23:59 PM

I just thought of this random question. I read that filament LED’s actually have helium for the sole purpose of no humidity and transferring heat. So in halogen like I run (43w for 60’s), is there a vacuum (I’d think that’d be counterproductive as really stress the capsule and not pull heat) or is there the good old argon inert of oldschool incandescent, or are they totally lazy and leave room air (I’m gonna be sad if so LoL!!). Thanks guys and Happy Thanksgiving. I’m stuck at work lol.

Code may need to be written to make the auto delete happen, but making it advanced to leave topics that have discussion will add complexity to it. It will have to be up to the posts author to move the post themselves within the time given if they feel it has value.

I think a auto delete on threads with less than a handful posts after 30, 45, or 60 days would be a reasonable rule. Any longer threads would be more likely to contain discussion so those get set aside for manual checking.

I've said this before , I don't see why cleaning dead listings should have to be done by you Admins ! I fail to see why it's so flippin' hard for the OP to either remove dead items or update links THEMSELVES !! I try to clean up my listings every couple weeks or so. It's not that hard !

 And I agree that some sort of auto delete would seriously simplify the task of keeping the keeping the section "clean"

I brought that up in todays admin chat but they feel it should be ok to allow bids. I'm not sure how to manage the webfinds itself anymore because it has way to much stuff for me to sort through to keep updated. I'm really pushing to have it set up to auto delete posts after certain time. In the meantime it will no longer be maintained until a solution is found.

Hello fine lighting people. I have been fascinated by the rarity of /x lamps, and have only found 2 instances of picture that have any good detail. Does anyone else know any other picture on this or other sites? trying to keep a count of all of found versions on the internet. :) :mvc:

A red OV12? Cool. I haven’t seen any OV12s here, but there are some OV15s, which are all silver.
Some OV12s still thrive here. I bet the red one is LED sadly.
