Friday afternoon, and my efforts to get to inbox zero are being hampered by people sending me emails.

Which reminded me of this I read yesterday:

Workload generators may be classified as based on a closed system model, where new job arrivals are only triggered by job completions (followed by think time), or an open system model, where new jobs arrive independently of job completions. In general, system designers pay little attention to whether a workload generator is closed or open.
