Subject: Incandescent vs. fluorescent lights? 

I'm just on an elog roll this morning...

Again while poking around inside the IFO room, I noticed that they have replaced all of our incandescent lights with CFLs.  Do we care?  The point of having the incandescent lights on a separate switch from the big fluorescent lights was so that we could have only 60Hz lines, not wide-band noise if we want the lights on while locking. 

I'm not sure that we actually care, because more often we just turn off all the lights while trying to do serious locking, but if we do care, then someone needs to ask the custodial staff (or someone else?) to undo the change.
