naw, not sad. I'm loving it man! Really creative actually. The last part sounded like you were trying to hard, but the "if it's glass and glows, he knows" was perfect. I'll definitely remember that.
Thanks for giving me the tip.
I tested the broken bulb and it turns on for a quick second, then shuts off. It can't maintain itself in the on position. So it seems as if it's not completely inoperable, but instead that there isn't enough power to keep it on or something. I tried it with the ballast that I know works and i get the same thing. I've checked the fuses and everything is good. Any ideas why the bulb only turns on for a brief second but doesn't stay on? Please help.
