Dumb question here: Aren't those reflectors designed to reflect most of
the light out at exactly the same angle from which it comes in?  i.e.,
they're meant to appear very bright when you shine a headlight at it, from
the point of view of someone right near the headlight.  I'd think this
wouldn't be so useful as a tank reflector, since it would send the light
careening back to the bulb rather than toward the tank.

Anyway, to other things.  I have (finally) updated the AGA page, since I
(finally) got a copy of the Sep-Oct TAG (mailed to me personally by Neil
after my subscription futzed up).  I suppose everyone else has already
gotten the Nov-Dec issue, so maybe I'll have that info up by March. :)
