Going over to an all digital switch takes all the fun out of it. ***** Moderator's Note ***** "clicked and popped"? Shhesh: kids these days. You have not lived unless you can recall the ordure of burnt Brylcream that suffused every molecule of air in a Panel office. You cannot even begin to appreciate what "clicks" or "pops" are until you have heard the Originating Marker of a #5 Crosbar during busy hour. The 1AESS did not "click" or "pop": it snickered, hummed, and whined. It sounded like something a high-school physics teacher put together to demonstrate Ohm's Law. Bill Horne Moderator
