Interestingly enough, Maplin (www.maplin.co.uk)
use cheap enough gates that they detect large rolls of copper cable cable. So when I went to maplin to buy
a large roll of copper cable (20m of network coax
), the alarm does its thing. Loudly
I stand there looking perplexed, but maplin hires people that are actually knowledgeable with electronics
and electrical engineering
, so the clerk looks up from the counter, sniggers, and says that he was expecting it to happen, and I jumped higher than most people do...
It was fun going round the St. James Centre seeing how many gates I could set off.
