Don't forget the 6 'Tree Huggers' to point out that you should in fact be changing it to an energy efficient LED lamp. You must consider your 'Carbon Footprint'!!!!

I heard it as "none: light fittings are user-serviceable" ;-)



How many forum demagogues does it take to change a lightbulb? Only one, but they'll only do it with screw-fit; they hold the bulb still, and the world revolves around them...
