I think, since the stagings are 2, you just drop them. As for the different
datajacks, as far as I can tell they are only important if you have a craniel
cyberdeck (since data goes into your head, they limit I/O speed). Otherwise,
just get the cheepy. You might use the speed to determine how long loading
softs would take, if someone does that, But decking is unaffected (simsense
input is like 1mp per sec, right?)
