 Metric vs. Imperial

Maybe it is just my reading, but 0.15/ft is *not* cheaper than 0.17/m: 1 meter ~ 3 feet. Therefore, it is almost 3 times more expensive...

Right you are.

I have my figures wrong. The Home Depot price was roughly $0.17 a foot or about $0.52 a meter. If you do the math, taking $0.51 / 3.28 gives you something like like $0.1585 a foot. Making Home Depot about $2.13 more expensive than The Trailing Edge for the 250 feet of cable I bought.

Thanks.
