Actually,  the other person that Bryan is talking to is saying things 
that are wholly wrong.  Wrong to the point that even a non-engineer type 
like me knows how off-base the other party is.  Bryan is understandably 
agitated but the other party needs to do a bit of research(easily done 
on google) about cpu and i/o interconnects in a high i/o environment. 
Hopefully the other party will see the huge error in his statements and 
at least acknowledge the errors.

My "Foundation" verse:
Isa 54:17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and 
every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt 
condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their 
righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
