industrial light and magic

It's all very well fitting kyoto-friendly light-bulbs but it doesn't really make for cosy does it? For a start they take about three hours to warm up, so it's best to keep a torch handy, if you're planning on reading anything. (I've taken to wearing a head-torch at all times). Once they up to speed, the quality of light is sooooooooo depressing. It's like sitting in a butcher's fridge, but with less atmosphere.

I'm tempted to paint the bulbs yellow, but worry that they'll give off even less light.

If they can't get this right, how on earth are we gonna shift over to solar-powered hover-cars? Eh?
