By the way, pressing your nose to the keyboard is all very well, except when using Emacs light-bulbs, then you have to get 4 friends to do it at the same time: Ctrl-Meta-Shift-l-b.
And if you're using Vim light bulbs, remember to press i before replacing.

I find lightbulbs very useful when it's dark. What do you use them for?

And that had me thinking - so do curtains!
So if its dark outside they stop the dark getting in, but they also stop the dark getting out if you have no light on.

Note to self: Must stop thinking. No light on inside. Should get curtains to stop it spreading. Some sort of foil hat with curtains perhaps.

I'm still puzzled as to how to power my new improved Linux lightbulb when I only have a 17 volt DC battery. What converter do I use?


Other question...how do I make a lightbulb with helium in it so its easier to put the florescent bulb into place?

make helium_flor_bulb.j14.tgz?

You really need to get over that. Install light_bulbs2 and forget Windows, especially since Windows won't do you any good when its dark.
