I have always wondered about a(n Inter)national bell database now that
computers and the WWW have come far enough for such a project to be

I guess that with any large project such as this, it will take 90% of the
time to define the database and 10% of the time to enter that data. Maybe
this is where relational databases come in, according to MPW.

Have we got any database experts out there, rather than computer experts?
