@mrtino @aral :-D That reminded me of a UNIX-helpdesk I worked for years ago, where we had a customer call in complaining that their SUN SPARCstation was performing badly, but we had to shout on the phone because "seems there's a construction site in my corridor that keeps using an angle grinder all day this week".
When our support-technician arrived, it turned out… there was no construction site.
That was the sound of the hard drive.
It was really, really struggling to perform at all.
