Need you ask? Make them Council houses. At least it would keep these incomers from your gates Je Suise, so there's a silver lining! tongue.gif

Talking of which, only just got off the phone to someone who does 'electric' gate installation. My disappointment was tangible when he explained that it only meant they opened and closed using said electricity. Anyone know if Amazon sell mantraps? 😯

So, let's get this right, you've got an empty building, full of cables, made out of copper, in Newbury. Hmm, fink I see a major business opportunity here. ��

Not empty no, but much of it is.
Fibre cables also.
All would need to be diverted, without a break in service, to a new site.
It all comes in through some big manholes in Bear Lane (and also through the aerials on the roof!).
Oh and all the exchange, transmission, ADSL and cellular network equipment needs powering!

Gotta keep the peasants out somehow. They are getting emboldened. Gated and electrified. With the appropriate warnings. Thats the way. Oh. And big vicious dogs. Release the hounds.....

Most of it was empty 20 years back. Is the **** ********* still in the basement, or is that still classified information?
