Mac, thanks for the link. Interesting to think about.
I have a glass jar with a metal lid. Where do I take the used bulb?
Maybe to Congress!? :

When turning out the lights...

When turning out the lights, did you ever think of just how many old mercury light switches are out there? Or thermostats with a little vial of mercury? I dare say that the old antique barometer on the wall of this room would give an EPA type a fit. It's a glass tube filled with mercury sitting in a reservoir of mercury.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
