overdriving fluoro bulbs

Hey guys

I missed the discussion on overdriving fluoros. Is it safe to do so?

As I understand it, it is the driving of a lower wattage tube with a higher wattage ballast. So far ppl have been doing this with electronic ballasts, is there any reason why it won't work with magnetic ballasts?

I guess what I'm trying to ask is if I can run a 30W T8 tube with a 36W magnetic ballast...

thanks for any help
