0800 Friday morning, machine is slow… why?

Random disk I/O, evolution doing a table scan again, and popularity contest fighting with it by reading in many many inodes.

 9729 be/6 nobody    183.44 K/s    0.00 B/s  0.00 %  0.00 % perl -w /usr/sbin/popularity-contest 

Time for pop-con to go – while I like giving statistics about use, this isn’t the first time its chosen to get in my way.
