Well... I kept getting the message that it wasn't from my subscribed
address --- which in the past had ment that it just doesn't get posted
(although that isn't what the message says).

Anyways... I havn't tried PCI-Express.  I havn't heard anything that
would convince me that it's more efficient... but then again, I havn't
really researched it.  The lastest hardware available when we tested
things was PCI-X (ie: 133 Mhz, 64 bit).
