    NO, I have the death of one disk on my wall of shame because of VIA and
    mistimed. I will not have another dead disk added to a once spotless
    wall. This is foolish. You do not drive 60MPH through a school zone just
    because you do not see kids. There will allows be a lose soccer ball
    popping into the road followed by a child. As there will be systems that
    are U66 fully capable but the ribbon is not present.

    Yeah, this make no sense but neither does defaulting to U66.
