Re: Systemic problems at Verizon

There exist little red caps that fit onto 66 blocks and binding
posts. They're hard to find, though. If someone here knows of
the supplier, I'll buy a few hundred.

In the 60's there was a special red ty-wrap that went around/over
posts/punches for ""national security"" lines. You had to cut same
off to test, and {in theory} requisition a replacement. I've only
see same in BSP's so I've no idea if they ever got much use.

We used to protect leased metallic pairs in a simpler manner; we
parked +130 Tip/-130 Ring on same. When Mr. Green put his butt set
on same; if his fingers didn't alert him, the BANG in his ear did.
