Damn... I remember some very interesting AIM conversations about the time that came out. I laughed for days. I think I even asked you if you could just leave it on overnight until the battery died but you started cursing a timer circuit that turned it off to save power :-)
Didn't you cross post that one on pen as well? *searches* Apparently not. There were 15 posts on pen by you but they started the month after you posted the lighter.
Do you still have that lighter? Tucked away in the cupboard? Or do you use it as a night light to help you see the toilet in the dark?
