    Good riddance indeed. In the mean time Phillips Halogena bulbs are a good alternative. There energy saving, dimmable, long lasting and, affordable.

    Re: Electrical problem

    I'm guessing theres an issue with the neutral at the panel but its a random guess. Either way this one is pretty serious and you should probably call a pro.
