The bulbs that are slow to get up to full light at normal
hosuehold temps usually have a programmed start. This
allows the bulbs to last longer than with instant start
ballasts. The rumors that it replicates the gradual dawning
of the sun are probably overstated ;-)

The biggest AGA Convention was an outstanding success. Two presentations by Jan Bastmeijer, two by Amano (one of which, Ben Bolton found to be a ribtickler). . .Walstad, Senske, Olvier Knott from Germany, Krombholtz. This was the most broadly international convention so far . . . People came from the USA, England, Italy, Poland, Netherleands, Germany, Japan, Canada . . .
