Well,it's off to home depot in the am. I wonder if Dan is a part time manager at Home Depot, with stock options even. :}
What happens if I push the 'Red' button?

Ha, ha! That's a good one. I do love Home Depot for lighting though, I bought all of my GE/Jasco fluorescents there and some LED channel lights that have been handy. They get a lot of my money.

I saw those too last week and made a mental note of them. They might be good for lighting faces in the interior of vehicles or something. They looked like they would be good for something, I just don't currently have a use for them.

They let a lot of light out the back (I could see the silhouette of the batteries and wires!), so I put a piece of foil behind the bulb to reflect more light out. I was going to cut the extra off, but it works as barndoors/reflectors to contain the light more.

DIVA dub

Might be fun to mount some of them on a 13" square and use it as a cheap DIVA light. You could adjust the brightness by turning some of them on/off. Perhaps they might function as a soft fill, and/or backlight. Definitely need to change the bulb as it's kinda greenish blue.

...A quick (not yet frantic) search and this is what popped up--exactly what I need.

Dan Brockett, you are a sanity saver! Thanks. :)
