I've used Merlins, System 75, Nortels and A1A'a at home, but now I have an
Iwatsu ZTD. The ZTD is fitted with Active-Voice Repartee voicemail and lots
of analog station lines to support my collection of old/unique phones. The
only digital sets are in my office and my wife's office. I also have the
relay board option and by using key sequences I can control 4 groups of
outside lights. I also have the card that allows for autoattendant.

I recently did a proper wiring job and setup of my phone stuff and
documented it here...


It's 12:30pm my time (eastern US), give me about 30 minutes to make that
website available. I have to move my webserer to port 8080 cause my frikin
cableco just recently blocked port 80 (thanks a lot microsoft!).
