Mr. Babineaux is correct: I dropped the ball on his order. He sent me
an upset e-mail this past Sunday evening a little before 9pm, and
while I obviously wasn't in the office, I was checking mail from home
later that night and responded at 11:30. I acknowledged and apologised
for my human error, and offered to send him the bulbs free of charge.
No response (still none as of today, Thursday), so I went ahead and
shipped him the bulbs anyhow, free of charge. He'll have them in hand
shortly, and I hope he uses them in good health. If he's so angry with
me that he'd get greater satisfaction from driving over them just to
hear the krunch, that's OK too. I'm certainly not the world's only
source for good lighting equipment, and I don't pretend to be, though
you'd usually be hard-pressed to find Marchal Ampliluxes and some of
the other rare stuff I keep.
Keep the greasy side down and the bright end forward,
