    Just wanted to make mention that our sponsor "EnluxLED" has received an award from Popular Science.

    You can see the article here:

    EnluxLED in popsci

    Not to worry, this forum is not about advertising them. I just happen to like their stuff.

    Interesting article. I wonder about the large (apparent) volume of aluminum used in the heat sink. Aluminum production requires large amounts of energy. These production requirements should be calculated and distributed over the life of the bulb before true energy efficiency can be calculated.

    On the other hand I have questions about the (potential of) toxics used in fluorescents that have never been answered. Since I have never seen my concerns addressed in the alternative press I have tended to discount them.

    I see the Science is a sponsor. That is one I would like to subscribe to. It costs a bit much though.

    Oops! I see it was a strategically placed Google add. How did they know?

    Google reads the content of the page for keywords. Sometimes they are a bit off, other times they are on the money.

    So, if I click on a Google add (at the bottom of the page) does Google know I came from here? If I buy something from that add do they keep track of the fact that a purchase derived from their add here? (Just wondering.)

    Sort of, they track that you clicked form here to wherever the ad takes you, that's about it. They pay per click. So far we've made about $1.58 to help support the site. LOL.

    Don't be fooled Terrapin, the second you click on a Google ad, they know your name, address, phone number, every site you've ever visted, they automatically download all of the files in your computer, and then they set up little cameras that look like flys all over your house and they watch you....but I won't be caught in their sneaky games.......

    Sorry...had to get that out of my system.

    I wondered why there were more flies in here all of the sudden! And I thought it was just the season. Man they’re tricky!

    It all makes perfect sense now.
