I'm sorry about that, you are right that the proper terminology is lamp. I have fallen into the bad habit of calling them bulbs because our directors and administration would be completely lost... I shall try to remember to use proper terminology on this forum though.jbogner: Throughout this thread the items spoken of (HPLs, FLK, FEL, BTL, BTN, BTR, CYX, BTH, GLC/GLA/GLD/GLE, etc., etc.) have been referred to a "BULBS." (I'm surprised that Derek & Mark haven't called you on this yet--shame, guys!) I know that the general unwashed public refers to them as "bulbs," however as with many things, the general unwashed public is wrong and often doesn't know of what it speaks. The "BULB" is one component of an incandescent LAMP, others being the filament, support structure(s) and base. I don't mean to be hard on you as a newbie in the biz, but please take some time, do some research, and learn the correct terminology for the items your're speaking of, especially when in the presence of (at least semi) professionals in a field, this or any other. Correct terminology is a very important factor in communicating and being understood. If you mean "lamp" please don't say "bulb."
