::BOO WEEP BO WEEP BO WEEP::
BURGLARY! BURGLARY! BURGLARY!
YOU HAVE VIOLATED AN AREA PROTECTED BY A SECURITY SYSTEM - LEAVE IMMEDIATELY
::BOO WEEP BO WEEP BO WEEP::


Yeah, so imagine that at eardrum-splitting decibels, for anywhere from 10-20 minutes at a time, over three periods between 1am-4am this morning.

Now ask me how my day is going.

Lets hear it for the Model SS-3000.

Fuckers.

That has to be the most ghetto looking security system i have ever seen. The only way it could get any more ghetto is if it was the MRD-W40 System.

MRD-W40 System consists of a cracked out homeless man named Melvin, who is always Really Drunk and watches your house. If he sees anyone causing trouble, re whacks them in the head With a 40, while screaming incomprehensible crackhead babble. He is available for about 20 bucks a week.

yeah
fundamentally though, i see elctornic security systems holding up against system degredation over time, as opposed to chemical setups.

sure melvin is a nice guy and all, but i'mnot really ok with him giving his 40 to tito for a couple hours while he goes to smoke a rock and sleep it off in the park.

Re: yeah
Yeah...that is a flaw inherent in the system. HOWEVER! It will be addressed in the next hardware iteration. And Melvin 2.0 will be a superior product.

Dude. I feel your pain, brothuh.

They are literally expanding the office space here, which means all of the fire and burglar alarms need to be rewired and tested.

The best part was when the contractors tripped a fire alarm before they got the ok to do so, because it hadn't been disconnected. Meanwhile, there was a Hook and Ladder company about 15 feet away running through drills in an abandoned building in the same lot. They heard the alarm, came over and told everyone to get out, which caused one beautifully chaotic moment throughout the entire office.

I'm sure the stray cats walking around the building in question were real intimidated.

fun!

reminds me of the year i lived in a really new, renovated building... during the renovation, they must have fucked something up or crossed a wire or three... cause about every two weeks, early in the morning, the building alarm, fire alarm, and ALL the electricity/lights/appliances in the building would go on and off, on and off about 50 times in 5 minutes.

UGH.
