    Danger! More humour! You have been warned..again!!

    Hi!
    This is just too rich...I have to share it with the board! I found a article about server tuning...very infromative..even though it is several years old...and entertaining as well. He goes through some linux internals..and then...at the very end of the page...

    Music

    Careful analysis and benchmarking has shown that server will respond positively to being played the approriate music. For the common case, this can be about anything, but for high performane servers, a more careful choice needs to be made.

    The industry standard for pumping up a server has always been "Crazy Train", By Ozzy Ozbourne. While this has been proven over and over to offer increased performance, in some circumstances I recomdend alternatives.

    A classic case is the co-located server. Nothing like packing up your pride and joy and shipping it to strange far off locations like Sunnyvale and Herndon, VA. Its enough to make a server homesick, so I like to suggest choosing a piece of music that will remind them of home and tide them over till the bigger servers stop picking on them. For servers from North Carolina, I like to play the entirety of "feet in mud again" by Geezer Lake. Nothing like some good old NC style avant-metal-alterna-prog.

    Comentary, controverys,chatter. chit-chat. Chat and irc servers have their own unique set of problems. I find the polyrythmic and incessant restatement of purpose of Elephant Talk by King Crimson a good way to bend those servers back into shape.

    btw, Xach says "Crazy Train" has the best guitar solo ever.

    Hi!
    Glad you enjoyed that. Here I thought treating my servers to my extensive Barry
    Manalow collection was a good thing...sigh...well..live and learn.
