Twinax rules - the KISS method helps keep one's blood pressure down,
not to mention that it is a wise business decision.

ROFL Joe - I agree that it was interesting. But Aaron really needed help
directed at his situation, without the noise. I love twinax for consoles
too - but then i am a luddite at heart! It just seemed that the talk of
bricks and bats and all were taking up his time unnecessarily.

And Rob does need to show more respect to his doddering elders!

And all this talk of twinax is just pointless when you do not have a

twinax card.

I don't know about that. Discussion of twinax isn't germane to Aaron's

situation, but the comment that stirred a lot of the pot -- 
specifically, Rob's opinion that twinax is both archaic and unreliable

-- deserved the opportunity for rebuttal. It's pretty clear from the 
comments that us old geezers and our silly KISS principle still have
some kick left in us.
