Top tip: making a noise is incredibly useful for test and
small-audience servers.  Whenever anything goes wrong, make the
computer make a sound, and you can ask whoever has a problem straight
away what they were doing, etc. - before they forget, and often while
they're still trying to work out what to do.

(The server we had that did this coughed discreetly when a problem
came up.  This was great until the winter cold season came on...)
