I have never seen anything to the effect of relay systems. They are often
brought up on this list, and I have seen relay computers that looked
quite impressive. But I have _never_ seen any explanation of how a system
based on relays works. Even in the Soviet Union, where projects like
'build your own RC boat' were common in magazines, I don't recall seeing
instructions on building a telephone exchange.
