Interesting about the lighting.  K0RF has these typical in-ceiling  
overhead fluorescents in his radio room.  Those things fatigue my eyes  and put me 
to sleep!  So, when I single-op at Chuck's, I bring a  long-necked, 
adjustable high-intensity desk-lamp--focused on the work at  hand--and turn those 
fluorescent-things off.  Every time he walks in the  room, though, he turns 
them on...so, we have the "Battle of the Lights!"  I  bring the high-intensity 
lamp for our multiops, too, and it does seem to  ameliorate the 
fatigue-effect of the overheads--which are always on for those  efforts. Not sure what 
it is about overhead fluorescent lighting  that affects me--but I know it's 
true.  Guess I need to research  the color spectrum-thing, too...
