When you are dealing with thousands of the little buggers you soon get to know which ones are rubbish.
It doesn't always come down to price either........

Biggers,

If you're going CFL, spend the extra few quid and buy "Megaman" brand lamps. They have longer "hour" life (10k-15k depending on spec), lower failure rates and are available in dimming formats too. Ultimately, they're cheaper by quite a margin. Savings are rapidly made in a high usage location, i.e. kitchen, hallway etc.

Trust me, the blood of the Mac Gille Mhoire still runs mean and lean in me veins

So never mind the photography - how the golly gosh did they do that without plugging the damn thing in?

No wonder Bigmuz is hacked off. It must be a lot more impressive with electricity involved.

Anyway owd lad, stop whingeing - a stir-fry is supposed to be crunchy...

That's a strange "almost a question", did you forget to finish it or something?

Generally here, when you're in a family, it been since you were born... how does it work over there?

Mind you, I looked into my Caledonian family tree recently....

...and some of them were still in it
