Hello after a year « on: April 16, 2022, 03:52:35 PM » Author: AgentHalogen_87
Right, um, hi. I'm terrible at introductions, so let's see how well I do.
Hello LG community. I have been a member on the site for exactly one year now, I will be timing this post to the minute. I never introduced myself originally but I don't see why not now.
I'm a UK resident, studying engineering, maths, and physics at A level in my final year, with a profound interest in roadway lighting. In particular low pressure sodium. I have even taken an LPS street light into school on multiple occasions for physics demonstrations.
My lighting collection is fairly small, consisting of 8 street lights, 4 traffic signals, a couple or roadworks lamps, 2 bulkheads and 2 4ft fluro battens (at the time of typing).
My interest in lighting was sparked by a traffic signal, with an unusual 'spotty' green arrow. However, long before that, my earliest memory is of a 2 year old me looking out the living room window, just as the GoldenRay 535 closest to me lit up crimson red. Go figure.
In addition to lighting, my other interests are fire alarms, martial arts, and clay pigeon shooting. An odd bunch, I admit, but there it is. Yes, you can get guns in the UK, just not as easily as the USA.
I got my first street light 5 years ago. A Philips FGS224 Residium in 36W PL-L, which has been my main bedroom light ever since, on its original, used lamp.
Before joining, I didn't know so many others have similar unusual interests. Originally, I joined to view images that guests couldn't see. Since then, I have thoroughly enjoyed typing with others on the site, pretty much my only form of online communication. I'm lucky I registered when I did, as one week later I had a world of depression to deal with. I may say why later, I may not, but this site certainly helped me during that time. Thanks guys.
AgentHalogen_87 came about because I registered my account with my burner email: AgentTest_87. I didn't know how often I'd use the site, or what might be sent to me. Add a lighting twist to AgentTest and you get AgentHalogen. I was quite happy with that, if I do say so myself.
A year on the site, and ready for 12 months more!
