    Fluorescent globe prices

    Be warned that the price of all fluorescent globes is about to go through the roof. I think around 30%. This is from some time in August.

    There is apparently a major shortage of phospherous world wide. What ever phospherous is measured in the price has jumped from 500 US$ to 5000 US$.

    According to Osram there is going to be a big shortage of fluorescents in all types.

    So buy now for the work we don't have and have your staff break and steal them before you can use them.

    Heck at the current rate of my consumption, no wonder there is a shortage, this new crap they selling only lasts about 6 weeks before it fails, so now with the shortage they may make a better quality globe.

    Better for the LED manufacturers then.
