I can't work out if you're being serious LOL

I particularly love the comment on the auction... "Electronic gear not your usual ballast and starter switch. Upon switch-on, the starter closes and preheats the tube's cathode filaments. Upon opening, the magnetic field within the ballast collapses, causing a voltage pulse which strikes the tube. This is often repeated twice or more, causing the distinctive blinking at startup.">switchstart stuff."
