Humor A recent YouTube video by Sun's Fishworks Lab's Brendan Gregg proves that vibrations (including shouting) will cause hard drives' latency to spike. But then, he only shouted at it angrily. Who's to say that perhaps blasting Mozart in your server room will cause the latency to drop? Perhaps telling each hard drive that he or she is special may even make their capacities grow!

I did that many times to my toaster. To no effect. Until I realized that it was a Japanese made machine. And, lo, after I switched to Japanese language, everything went smoothly again.
