Oh and on the subject of technical fail, what's up with the naming 
scheme of the 16x10GE card?

What idiot thought "hey I know, let's call this a fixed-configuration
modular port concentrator, instead of a DPC like all the other fixed
config cards we have"? Probably the same one who thought throwing "3D"
into the part numbers made everything cooler. I wonder if the cards come 
with glasses that make the logo pop out at you or something. :)
