"Holzhammermethode" - managed to rescue data off a failing NVMe in my server with a massive hammer (it helped to cool it to allow getting the data off the drive) 😀


@emanuel Then it is more „Eisenhammermethode“ because iron's/steel's thermal properties make those way better materials for heat sinks than wood. 😉

@Aarkon yes, but thats not as fun as this quirky german words ("Holzhammermethode" is similar in meaning to "steamroller tactics")- see dw.com/en/holzhammermethode/a-

@emanuel I know - if there was something like a profession to build around word play & puns in German*, I'd be tempted change my job right away. I only wanted to point out a minor weakness in this particular one, so nevermind! This was just as serious as your original post. 😉

*other than to to make up annoying commercial texts
