Agree with a few of the above - The Hill, Hell Drivers and A Bridge Too Far. Excellent films.

Maybe skip Zardoz though!

In Topic: Led Lighting - Worthwhile?

Don't know specifics, but some thoughts are (having replaced about 22 bulbs in one go).

They very rarely blow. My GU10 bulbs were blowing at least one a week. I've now had my LED ones in for about 6 months and not one has blown.

If your GU10s are inset into plasterboard they will be drying it out and it will eventually crumble. Because LEDs are significantly cooler it supposedly doesn't do this.

I didn't see any difference in light levels.

I also just bought mine online and not a brand name. IIRC cost me £30-40, but I'd have far surpassed that in bulb replacement for my old bulbs by now.

In terms of power used, IIRC the electrician who suggested doing this said that one one cost less to run than a lot of GU10s. I think the number he gave was about 15.

I was also wary, but really happy I made the move.

At some point in the future the establishment might, just might, realise that social media is not just daft schoolboys typing abuse into a computer, while the rest of the country goes on as before. The world has changed and to a great extent social media has driven that change. They can no longer feed us the cr@p they've fed us for decades. 15 years ago it's unlikely this would have been picked up. Only the press had the capacity to do that and they're far too compliant. More Yogi and BooBoo than Woodward and Bernstein.

What video, what did I miss?

 

Go to pretty much any 'adult' site and type in 'Glasgow'. :D

She wasn't from Port Glasgow by any chance?

 

:rollsmile:  What was it she said to the guy in that vid? Can't check as the wife is sitting next to me.
