Don't want to start ranting about modern life etc - BUT ! , I've had to take down the game I had set up to replace the light bulb which is over my gaming table AGAIN ! (being short and not very long armed to reach the light fitting). This one only lasted about a year ! , the one before that lasted at a guess 15 years !!!!!! . Okay so when it happened before I should have had the room rewired with spotlights but I did expect the bulb to last longer . Another one for the 'to do' list !.
