I believe there has been some falling-out among the member base.  Kinda sucks but I don't follow it; I'm not on there as much as I used to be anyway.

Looks like I'm scoring a bunch of 1950s/1960s "Louver" fixtures and F40SP35WM.  They're beat up, have been rained/snowed on outside in Interior Alaska for 10+ years, but I think I can make one good one (at least a 4' section, most are 8' but one is 4') out of all the parts and much bending and spraypainting with appliance epoxy. 

The one ballast I saw was an old, old GE.  Surprised they didn't all cook with 34w lamps, as some still had the lamps installed, though we found a bunch of the same lamps elsewhere on the property full of (mostly) trash.  Most are post '95, pre-03, but at least one that isn 't broken is a pre '92 model, and another appears to be a Sylvania SuperSaver Designer 3500k. 

Despite being crappy 34w, they're SP35, an anomaly...

Still works for me. Only time I ever have to re-log into this site is when I clear my cache, but the password and username are already filled in. All I need to do is check the keep my signed in box and hit log in and I'm in for good.

We shall see! They at least got their leaves and broken fluorescent tube glass knocked out of them and popped stubborn louvers loose when two of them hit the highway.  (There is an amusing story there). 

Since you used to like Google Streetview links, here's where that happened: https://www.google.com/maps/@64.5311774,-149.0738928,3a,75y,157.16h,78.55t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sUA8g_cSf7HkT52EwsG0cJg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

(Well, somewhere out in this area...I can't remember exactly where).
