At least two misleading things here. There is no "breakdown voltage" involved (varying impedance doors not cause "spikes"), and delay has nothing to do with raw bit-rate.

@DavidSchwartz: I don't disagree, and I can't be bothered to update my answer right now, but I dispute that it's wrong. What happens when there are no clean pages left to evict?
