colloquialism" tag to the "Can you say", sorry.
In testing to verify whether our SCSI was in spec or not we went through a
ton of tests and our SCSI expert had to know that everything started at 0.
He did as much of his SCSI coding in assembler as was possible. Speed
demon. Never said powering down brought anything into spec. What it did was
level the playing field to the least common denominator so he had a
