A buddy of mine was in the clean room of a disk drive manufacture
(to remain nameless). Being the joker he is, he farted next to the
particle counter that kept track of the general level of cleanliness
of the room HDAs were being manufactured. It took several hours to
convince management not to shut the line down and completely clean
the room (basically you have to wipe EVERY surface, item, tool in
the room with a cleaning solution and lint free cloths).

I still don't trust XT-2190s.
