The incandescent light bulb is slated for phase-out, but some folks are readying to hoard them, it seems.

I can see why. I’ve bought some really bad compact fluorescent bulbs in recent years. They can be slow to come on, and can be quite dim at first, brightening slowly to their rated luminosity level. Painful, especially in the wallet.

With some experimentation, I’ve found some pretty good compact fluorescent bulbs, and no doubt the the consumer rating outfits will be running some tests for publication. I’ll have a look and get back to you.
