[time-nuts] lunatic fringe time standards

I found the twisting of leads more of a problem with common epoxy packaged
transistors than the 8 pin RTL 914/923 devices. Regards - Mike

RTL was a VERY simple design. a 2 input NAND had 2 transistors and 3
resistors as I remember.

The main issue was lead attachment was the main failure mode in the
epoxy-ceramic 8 lead packages. If you twisted a lead, the device died.
