Gowd. What about OZ, same both types. However in Australia it is illegal to change light bulbs yourself. The legal way is to get a licensed electrician in to do it - are we over regulated or what?

I'd say it would take an infinite about of forum members to change a light bulb, because we are all merely virtual entities with no physical form.
