This was a great thread. For one, it's interesting to see the
approaches you can take to solve an issue. I.e., we can tune the OS to
quite a degree, but many times just optimizing a query can lead to
much greater improvements. We can also sometimes throw hardware at the
problem; and sometimes doing that is faster/cheaper than a heuristic
approach :D.
