Since CFL's are now down to $1 each, I don't even fuss anymore
when they fail.  All my failures have occurred within the first
10 seconds.  If they last longer than that, then they are good
longer than I will ever remember.

I used to mark the date on the base of each one when I installed
it, but now that hassle is not even worth the $1 cost of simply
replacing it.  Though I wo uld like to see my own statistics...
But got lazy and now don't mark them anymore...
