Not unglued - still paste

 Well here is another problem.
 A DE does not "Create" more power it just projects more of the availble 
 lumens.  BTW DE lamps are only effiecient out to 220 feet, That's where 
 they are focused to.  After that the cutoff goes away.
Eric, I'm sure you have the expertise to make infinite corrections to my
post, as well as the graciousness to modify "superior" and "exact" statements
in your posts about aero/euro beam patterns.  If you reread the statement I
did not say it "creates" anything.  That statement is correct that it
produces more light power.  As I'm sure you know, P lighting produces "less"
light power, contrary to your earlier posts, the reflector and bulb is a dumb
device (Avi), it tends to send stray light to a lot of places other than the
filter, that produces "less" light output, measured as lumens, that part is
correct.    My statement as to "producing" more light is appropriate and
correct terminology, your referenced "creation" was neither posted nor
implied.  BTW, "BTW," I would need your reference to why DE lamps are not
efficient beyond 220 feet without specifying size, shape, lense, bulb,
aperature, and reflector type.  My research shows that CLEARLY to be a
misleading and incorrect "blanket" statement.   I'm sure you have your
source, please do post it.

Eric, some more of your "expertise" and background in explaining some of your
earlier posts might be in order here.  Some, in fact a lot, of your one line
and other expert "factual" statements clearly contradict most available
sources of information.  Maybe you can share with the list some of the
obvious differences between what is happening in film lighting vs what is
happening in the automotive field, it appears to be massively different,
though I found the application of theory the same (?).   If anyone else would
need more clarification on my lighting posts, please do post.  I will happily
revise any edits, corrections, and/or additions to the nerdy part, to make
this archive accessible reference material regarding lights.  Certainly, we
all agree, audis need them.

Once done, I will resend it in final form, with a subject line that will
easily accommodate the simplest of search engines.  This should avoid them
grabbing a lot of flaming hot air posted on this subject in the last weeks.
