Re: Cable entanglement

There is the Diogenes corollary...

Every cable you buy is around 1/3 linguine* too short & you end up with between 5 & 35 linguine* of 'excess' ready to loop around a foot , or chair leg/roller

For some reason (age?) I am still more comfortable with feet & inches for anything smaller than a metre & had to convert to REG units so I wasn't mixing up inches & metres
