Yep! I went to a flourescent light last year, after seeing the one my dad
had picked up. I like that the bulb is encased in a clear tube, that way if
you do drop it hard enough, you won't have broken glass everywhere and it
doesn't get "blast-furnace" hot. I now have a 150watt Halogen work light
that is gathering dust in the closet. Just a note, I stopped at one of those
discount surplus stores by my apartment and found a 12v flourescent trouble
light that plugs into the cig lighter, only $5, I jumped on it. I should
probably go back and see if they have any left, and pick up a couple more.
