@CEB1993, yo yo yo... brotha man... listen, if your job is legitimately that bad, you have got to walk out of there. Seriously. Because...
power tripping authority figures, followed by other authority figures who simply sit back and watch it happen = horrid experience. Life
changing experience. Seems as if this situation is taking lead in your life... and of course, you want to take the lead back. The best way to
take the lead would be to leave them in their own misery. From what it sounds like, their lives suck. Don't let them bring you into their world.
Don't let them bring you down with them. Heck no... find an alternative route and get the heck out of there.
As for me, I haven't had anyone at my job try to bully me down yet, and my new boss has been great!
He's a motorcycle rider, so he and I are definitely getting along just fine. He's also a much stronger guy than my former boss, and he looks
like a mixture of Jason Statham and Ryan Reynolds. So everyone is taking him very seriously. lol
There will be additional crazy coworker stories from me because of this man, I'm certain of that. None yet though.
But yeah, CEB, there are way too many jobs out there, and you've got way better work history than me. You can use that to your advantage and
get out of that. Those type of people -- I identify them as: "Lames."

@Cole D, if it's just rain, or a weak/typical thunderstorm, hit that gym and make some gains!! Don't let a little heavy rain stop you!
Plus, it'd mess up any gym routine you have if you skip.

@Dor123, I figured it wasn't as bad as here in the U.S... I've never heard of Tornadoes, specifically F4 or F5, in Israel or the Middle East
in general. Not yet. I'm still surprised that it at least was strong enough to produce hail. Here in the U.S, we see golf, softball
and grapefruit sized hail from the Supercell storms.

The electrical characteristics (arc voltage at a given arc current) have to remain the same, because he lamp is supposed to electrically match the standard.


But lets say you didn't. Lets say you had the power to design the auxiliary gear or halogen tube anyway you wanted.


In my world I am willing to sacrifice life for efficiency.

I hope I'm posting this in the right category, but I have an announcement to make.

I'm sorry to have to tell you all this, but due to the recent family downturn (my father dying December 7th 2018) and some unforeseen events that have plagued us since my father died and due to my mother wanting to sell the house, the commutes I do in Boston when I go to take pictures of street lights will be forced to go on hiatus for as long as it takes to complete, which my boss strictly doesn't care how long it takes.
Also, due to my mother wanting to sell the house, we had to downsize on things. Even my street light collection. You may have noticed in my collection album, the pictures of my Westinghouse OV25 Silverliner, Thomas & Betts Model 113, ITT Model 25, General Electric M400R2, Leotek GC1 and the traffic light LEDs no longer exist in said album. They will be gotten rid of as soon as possible, which forced removal of the pictures. As a result of this, I will no longer be able to see Mercury Vapor like I used to when they were here. I may be making some changes to my commutes. One example may be focusing on the LED ones only or I may be cutting back on this hobby until I soon retire, probably by the end of the year.
However, this doesn't mean I'm leaving Lighting-Gallery.net or Gallery-of-lights.org. The pictures my mother allows to keep in the albums will remain online for everyone to see. It only means I won't be as active with new pictures in the future.
I thank you all for your support in the pictures I've brought here all these years,
and I regret any inconvenience this may cause as far as bringing in new pictures in the future.

I'm sorry for your loss. And hope to see ya back.


Also please dont throw them away! Send them to other members if need be..

If the ballast is rated for 40 w lamps only then the lamp will be overdriven. If the ballast is rated for both 30 and 40 w lamps then it would be slightly overdriven because the ballast is a compromise for both wattages.

Oh, now that I think about it, the T8 versus T12 difference will come into play, too. Others with more knowledge will be able to explain this. In any case, monitor the ballast temperature to make sure that it doesn’t overheat.
