Hi All:

Just a quick note designed to head off any flames, etc. about my looking
for extinct technology:-)

Yes, I know SxS is dead -- I guess that is what a museum is all about
-- to show the marvels of things past. And I do know that it will be
very difficult to find technology which hasn't been used in 20 years.

But what better place to look -- amongst professionals in the
telecommunications industried. Perhaps one of you might have seen
Strowger equipment in storage through the years, and might be able to
provide a lead as to where I might be able to find a PAX. PABX, or
even parts to build a demo switch for the museum.

To one and all who take the time to read my message, I thank you for
both me, and for the museum ...
