I've seen a lot of threads containing complaints that their replacement bulbs only lasted a few weeks or a few months. I'm pretty sure the reason is that they get their grubby little fingers all over the bulb surface. Wear a pair a disposable latex gloves when you get around to actually handling the bulb itself. Otherwise, get ready to do this again real soon.

The bulb glass will last nearly forever as long as it heats up and cools evenly, but the oils from your fingers will cook onto the glass, creating stresses as it goes through the heating and cooling cycles and then eventually failing.
