 This approach work ok for filament-type cathodes.  For heater-type 
 cathodes, it sounds risky to me.

RICH: they did that in the old tube type tv sets to give an " instant on" 
effect the heaters ran at about 60% voltage, when the set was off. thinking 
back, i wonder if this shortened the tube life including the pix tube??
