Have you tried using normal bulbs of lower wattage in the 4 socket adapter?

(Honestly, the lower wattage shouldn't make a difference, but just in case it does...)

This needs to be made into a full story-arc.

Strange...I count fourteen words...

Update 12/28: Ch. 79 done at 6,700 words. I think I'll see if I can get this entire arc done before I start posting it - if not, I'll give up and post before too long, but I'm encouraged by how fast Ch. 79 went.

Excellent! I am excited for this. How will we make sure we see each other? Any suggestions are welcome.

Hi; I'm a lurker of about one year, and recently decided to stop lurking and create an account.

I'm an undergraduate in Portland-area Oregon. I study mathematics and computer science at Pacific University. I've been interested in rationality for a very long time, but Less Wrong has really provided the formalism necessary to defend certain tactics and strategies of thought over others, which has been very...helpful. :)

Speaking of Portland, it seems that there are many Portland Less-Wrongians and yet there is no meetup. I would like to start a meetup, so I need a bit of Karma to get one started.
