Hey CamsDad!. . .you missed two that - when they changed the bulb - the power to their house/apartment began blowing fuses. . . . and the three more that claimed that the developer/manufacturer of the bulb is at fault for giving misleading instructions on their website . . . and the other three that whined about Westinghouse having no forum on their website. . . . :-lol:-lol:-lol:-lolRegards!pjWell, it's not the funniest post, but at least we're not bashing FSX or Microsoft. OK, Mods. . you can lock the post now. :+

Who ever comes across the post towards the end, is the one who most benefits from it! They will become very knowledgeable about lightbulbs, or was that light bulb, or lamp? :)

It's not light-bulb or lightbulb. Lamp would be correct. If you need a link to prove it I can provide one. :)

How about the 3 three that want to institute a class action against the light bulb/lightbulb/lamp manufacturer/reseller/distributor/developer/retailer because the light bulb/lightbulb/lamp does not illuminate the surface of the moon when shone from the earth using a 12 volt battery.CheersChris Porter:-outtaPerthWestern AustraliaIntel Core 2 Duo E6700ASUS P5N32-E SLI Deluxe Motherboard4GB Corsair VS DDR2 667Mhz RAMInno3D 8800 GTX 768MB GDDR3 590MHz VideoASUS MW221u 21" Wide Screen LCD2 x 320Gb WD SATA DrivesCreative X-Fi Platinum Sound Lian Li PC-B20B Aluminium Black CaseMS Vista Ultimate OEMCH FlightSim Yoke USBCH Pro Pedals USBTrackIR 4 Pro and Track ClipMSFS FSX Deluxe Edition Full install at 1400x960x32Check out my 5th Around the World flight with MS FSX at http://members.iinet.com.au/~portercbp/fly...W_05/index.html

There's also the 3 who claim the light bulb fails to give enough light and that they will stick with candles for the time being. :-lol

>There's also the 3 who claim the light bulb fails to give>enough light and that they will stick with candles for the>time being. :-lol I've always found that there's a continuous "flicker" with candles, though - but I believe that's been fixed by moving to LMPvX. The low value of CndlePwr_Radius can be increased by changing the setting in the lmp.cfg file. (Look for {Display} (brackets need to be square brackets)). Don't worry, Victor - they will be releasing SP1 within the next month, anyway. . . . probably. . . . . . .:-lol:-lol:-lol
