    Is it just me or did the Hollywood sign used to be lit at night? I just moved here in October and have noticed it's not visible after dark. I distinctly remember seeing it lit when I used to vacation here years ago. Is my memory fooling me?

    Well, in the 1920s it had about 5000 light bulbs on it[​IMG]
    In recent history I believe that it has only been illuminated for special occassions, like the Olympics and the Millennium celebrations.
