Operation Apartment of Marble: Let There Be Light - A Recovering Physicist's Apology

About Operation Apartment of Marble: Let There Be Light

Previous Entry Operation Apartment of Marble: Let There Be Light Aug. 27th, 2006 @ 05:29 pm Next Entry
For anyone that has visited they know that my light was for all intensive purposes a decroded piece of crap. The cover (that hides the twin florescent “bulbs” was cracked and crumbling. A few days ago Daito Massive went to an import store and seeing the swank new lights in the store was the straw that broke the camel’s back, so to speak. Today Dan and I went to our local hardware store and bought two new lights (Dan’s light was also bad – but for different reasons). The light went in incredibly easily no tools required. The bad thing is the light has a remote control rather than a pull string. I am now terrified of loosing the remote and not being able to turn my light back on. On the plus side the light has a remote control rather than a pull string! It is just like the fu-ture! Now I can turn my light on and off from any local in my pad, the FUTURE! Sitting down the new light fixture was remarkably cheap. It was on sale for about $40. Considering I could not find a new cover, and a new set of florescent lights (which it came with) cost about $20, it was cheap.

^^^^ Definitely use the new icon!

I think a remote control-operated light is uber-swank. As for not losing it, just keep it in one place all the time NO MATTER WHAT. I know that sounds obvious, but for example, with my TV remote, I put it on top of the console selector box, without fail. Or the X360/GameCube wireless controller: on top of the X360/on the GameCube's shelf. That way it's always in "its spot."

You don't need to worry about losing your 360 controller. The only place it could possibly be obscured is if it was under an origional X-box controller.

You could really freak someone out if you wanted to, especially if it's on a dimmer.
