comment What is this strange, linear light bulb?
@DoxyLover, thanks very much for the tip. Fortunately, this bulb was already burnt-out, so I didn't ruin anything. Armed with your advice, I'll be sure not to ruin the replacement!

@NiallC. Thanks. I agree that it's a dupe, except for my second sub-question: Why?

comment Is there a standard hole diameter for corner braces?
@bib, I'm looking at 2" or shorter braces, and I want to put bolts through them and through 2x4s. The goal is to temporarily join two 2x4s with the 1.5" face of one resting against the 3.5" face of the the other, using a bracket on the inside of the join (hence maximum 2"). I want to use bolts rather than screws to make it easier to detatch and re-attach.

comment Can I safely power a three-prong electrical device from a light socket?
@unforgettableid, 1) A lampholder is a socket for a lightbulb. 2a) No. 2b) I rent, so no. 3a) No. 3b) Yes; I ended up using that instead. 4) Probably not, as the single overlooking window is right in front of the kitchen sink.

That's exactly what I'll do if I can't get my power safely out of the exterior receptacle. It's not my first choice mainly because of bugs.

Changing the light fixture is not an option, since I only need this setup for about a week.

@MikePowell: It'll be out there on the order of one week. The cover is roughly of this size and configuration: homedepot.com/Lighting-Fans-Outdoor-Lighting-Outdoor-Wall-Mount/…
