BBC News website, and low-energy light bulbs…

They really seem to have it in for them this week…. 5 days into 2008, and already they’ve got 3 news stories up on the site.

Personally I’ve never been much of a fan of the things myself… and I remember while round at my Grandma’s one day while her house was being assessed for some low cost energy scheme for old / disabled people (“Warm front” / “Stay warm”?) the bloke going round the house doing it advised they shouldn’t be turned on if you’re going to be in & out the room for an hour or less at a time (or words to that effect), as they use up 10times more energy than a normal bulb for the first hour or so of use.
