One of the many things that would be outlawed when incandescent lights are banned (see below) is the Balafire bulb. And all of these. Do not miss that page's links page, if you like bulbs. And I've posted this before, but do not miss this.

If you grew up watching MuchMusic in the early 90s, you may remember a graphic of an analog clock that came on in the mornings, and automatically switched to show the time zones across Canada. I made that. It wasn't some fancy modern character generator, either-you couldn't buy something like that off the shelf at the time. I wrote it in Pascal. We had a similar clock on Citytv, which was an actual mechanical clock, in a box, with a camera fixed on it, which was keyed into the video. So you can imagine my delight at finding this.
