Re: Do i need to buy a ballast resistor ?

So what's the point of updating the lights, if it isn't going to save you any power load... the resistor seems to defeat any power saving..

Re: Lightning: I got blowed up real good!

only thing that can protect you 100% from lightning is unplugging things before a storm..
Plus adding lightning rods onto your house will save it from a fire and minimize the damage..and get you an insurance discount.
Any house that has proper lightning rods,,has NEVER caught fire from lightning.
