Hell no! All old cross-bar and steap-by-steap switching systems have
been replaced by ESS since the mid 80's to early 90's. The last one
probley was in serivce in the old Soviet Union 16 years ago until being
replaced. And I am NOT going to reply to a usenet post via email!

O' and Allen says: "Lay off my booze, boy!"

I am the God of hell-fire, raised to salvage my revenge against all the
pitiful Usenetists of those who have betrayed the Kingdom of Robert
James. Threat not thyself, James because of thine workers of inequity.
Nor nether be thou envious against the international Usenet faggotry
posted to the ALT hierarchy. For they shall be cut down like the grass
and wither like the green herb, thus saith Allen the Magic Goose. Now
get us a bottle of extra strong DM Robitussin and a tin of dipping
tobacco as to get good and wasted, boy!
