Reminds me of a funny story - not a short one, so bare with me:
I'm at this IT conference for IBM a few years back. The speaker for lunch is the guy who invented "ctrl-alt-delete" as an escape hatch. Anyway, he's talking about IBM's server diagnostic tools and how they help you determine what's wrong with your server. He goes on to compare the old the old servers without said tools to a baby who is crying but can't yet speak so it is really hard to know what's wrong.
Upon hearing this, the guy next to me at lunch (a total stranger to me, mind you) leans over and whispers to me, "So, is he saying when my server starts acting up I should shake it really hard?"
