I inspected some lights around the house and will have to replace another LED due to flickering. It was installed November 2018 and is used 8-10 hours a night. I didn't have any replacements on me so I will have to get one tomorrow.

Mainly the electrical side of things

Ok so not strictly lighting-related, but we repaired the malfunctioning cooling fan on the 12V 32A DC power supply we use to drive the 120V 60Hz inverter we use to power our American 60Hz discharge ballasts, so in a round-about way it's slightly to do with lighting Wink Grin

Edit- we also just installed a fan in the network rack cabinet as it gets a bit warm in there with all the kit that has to stay on 24/7  Mind Blown

I installed some GE Dawn Pink incandescents from 1988 in a cool 80s fixture that I got from paintballer22.

Picked up an order of 69w traffic signal incandescent lamps I placed a couple of days ago. Funny thing, the person at the counter said they haven't placed an order for them for 5 years.  Mind Blown

Makes sense as the very last incandescent signals in the my area disappeared in 2015 or so.

When I first started collecting signals I used to use regular clear 40w incandescents as those were everywhere but I switched to buying the proper lamps now as the regular 40w lamps are now banned. Appliance lamps do work but cost around the same at the real deal now.

This was yesterday, but I replaced the flickering LED lamp (which was working fine oddly, by the time I got a new lamp to replace it) with a new one. Even though it's working fine now, it will be retired.

Finally was able to go to the ReStore for the first time. I didn't even know about this until I heard about them from my friends here at LG. Thanks all! I bought the following

-2 F15T12 cool white fluorescents, a GE and a no-name.

-2 Sylvania clear 150w incandescents with a PS30 shape and C-9 filaments.

-1 GE 40w soft white A19

I'm hoping to get back there soon they have some stage light fixtures for only $10 each and a 1950s kitchen drum light I'm thinking about getting.

Yesterday...
Upgraded a 2x 24" (currently has T8's, but can also use T12) aquarium light from preheat to electronic RS.

Also not directly lights, but light-related....
saved/backed-up the description/comment pages from some of my GOL streetlight gallery images.
Not sure if I'll continue going through it all (though I'd like to) as its very time-consuming.

@Xmaslightguy, what made you switch to electronic RS? Today, I've been searching for non-EOL protected electronic RS ballasts
for my Sadelite desk lamps. The magnetic ballasts for PL-L lamps have been great so far with no starting issues... but seems
as if those ballasts are under-driving my lamps. The lamps are still definitely bright though, but not as bright as when
they contained electronic ballasts. Even my Advance Centium RS electronic ballast for 40w T12's operated PL-L lamps brighter.
Also today: discovered my porch light flickering. It contains a very small 9 watt CFL from Philips. (thanks to me) I don't know the issue
there, but it's possible that it could be a wiring issue.

Went out and picked up some lamps for the illuminated street sign I installed yesterday.
