    • >Shibori, I have written about this in the past. I don’t switch off with the remote, I switch off at the set. I only have the TV, so for me the worry is less. My PC is the biggest power user, it’s 24/7, but I manually switch off the monitor at night.

      Thanks for the link.

  1. Nice! I usually just dispose burnt out tubes. Do you have a step-by-step procedure of this lampshade?
