Gotta ask here ... did you check/replace the bulb? :huh:
Q: The light above the electrical engineer's dining room table goes out. What is the engineer's first step in troubleshooting?

A: Tear the fixture off of the ceiling and check the wiring.

Had a buddy who had an electrical problem. Recessed lighting in downstairs hallway is controlled from both ends by 3W switches. Lights all stopped working. Checked bulbs (OK), cycled breaker (OK), cycled wall switch (OK-But this is a good time to point out that he only checked one of the two switches). Calls in electrician. Electrician finds the lever on the second three-way sitting in the mid position. Cost-$125.

D'oh!
